We are developing a sports complex in Bovey that includes the CW3 Phil Windorski Field, and the Jen Guyer Field.
We own and manage Hodgins-Berardo Arena.
We provide a fitness center at the arena for public usage, ages 14 and up.
We employ a full-time director and an assistant, and have an office at the arena open weekdays from 8 am to 4:30 pm.
We prioritize what is best for the kids.
We are Greenway Joint Recreation Association: ten government entities within the Greenway School District (ISD 316) working together to provide quality youth sports and sports facilities. GJRA has levying authority to fund both goals. The government entities are Bovey, Calumet, Coleraine, Greenway, LaPrairie, Lawrence Lake, Marble, Nashwauk (twp), Taconite, and Trout Lake.
