The study was made possible by major funding from the Community Development Fund of the Government of Yukon, with additional funding from the Whitehorse Minor Soccer Association. The steering committee was made up of the members of the indoor centre facilities committee plus representatives from both Yukon and Whitehorse governments. Phase One was conducted by Luigi Zanasi Economist and Malcolm Taggart Research Northwest. For Phase Two, the services of Kobayashi + Zedda Design group were added. The consultants work took place over a fourteen month period beginning in October 2000. Preliminary work to set up the study preceded this by about a year.
Shortly after CDF funding was procured, the City of Whitehorse included funding in the 2001 budget for a feasibility study. This funding was applied to additional conceptual design work by Kobayashi + Zedda.
The facilities committee thanks YTG and the City for their support in person hours and financially.
