Lancerlot Sports Complex has been sold to Penalty Box Partners, LLC. They will be bringing back a second full sheet of ice to the Virginia's Blue Ridge. Lancerlot has a great deal of history and connection to ice hockey and the new ownership is thrilled to be able to return ice to the facility and to grow ice sports. All of the partners in this venture are committed to the community and have a true love and affiliation with ice hockey and ice sports. Penalty Box Partners maintains its local ties to the community as players, parents of players, fans of hockey and ice sports as well as actively living and working in the community. The new owners plan to maintain the existing memberships and operations of the fitness center and swimming pools, although they are planning to modernize some of the fitness and exercise equipment and reallocate various interior spaces to increase overall efficiency and function of the building. Penalty Box Partners will maintain the current staff as well as add full and part time employees to support the ice rink. Construction will begin in February and the owners expect the ice to be ready for community use in the fall of 2018. The Lancerlot's addition of a second sheet of ice will provide an additional practice location for Roanoke's professional hockey team, the Rail Yard Dawgs, as well as serve as a primary practice game location for several local collegiate club hockey teams and offer the region the ability to host hockey tournaments and skating competitions. The facility will also be reestablished as a base of operations for Valley Youth Hockey Association as well as the RVAHA and the RNCHL, both adult hockey associations. Also, the ice will provide additional opportunities for adult recreational hockey, public ice skating, and recreational figure skating.
