Ice Arena, Activities Center, Community Resource
Endicott announced in May of 2014 that beginning in the fall of 2015, the College and athletic department intended to promote both the men’s and women’s ice hockey teams to NCAA Division III varsity status. An extensive national search led to the hiring of R.J. Tolan (men's ice hockey) and Andrew McPhee (women's ice hockey) as the head coaches asked to usher their respective programs into their inaugural varsity seasons. Endicott broke ground on a first-class ice arena in July of 2014 and announced that the facility is to be named for hockey legend and North Shore community activist Raymond J. Bourque.
The Raymond J. Bourque arena, which is a state-of-the-art facility with all of the amenities, opened in September of 2015. The arena seats roughly 1,000 spectators and provides countless opportunities for intramurals, student activities, and formal speaking events. With the rink, there is a tremendous opportunity to serve Beverly High School hockey, Beverly youth programs, and multiple other programs throughout the North Shore community.
