NYA First in State with Look-Up Line™ at Travis Roy Ice Arena

Travis Roy Ice Arena at NYA has a new look to the ice. NYA’s arena is the first in Maine to install a Look-Up Line™ on its sheet. The ice now has a 40 inch orange stripe around the edge flush to the boards.

The Look-Up Line™ was first installed at the Pingree School in Hamilton, MA just over a year ago by the Thomas E. Smith Foundation, whose mission is to “just cure paralysis.” The Look-Up Line™ is “ice hockey’s first warning track” with the goal of decreasing player head and spinal cord injuries. Thomas Smith, a former Pingree hockey player, suffered two spinal cord injuries after falling into the boards at bad angles. He has made it his mission to help prevent these types of accidents for fellow hockey players.
