Although the Goggin Ice Center is already one of the finest NCAA hockey facilities in the country, Miami University athletics has received two commitments totaling $1.8 million to add a state-of-the-art weight room to Steve 'Coach' Cady Arena for the Miami hockey program's use. The project, which will total $2 million, is expected to begin construction this fall.

The weight room will consist of four areas for the student-athletes' use. One section will be an off-ice shooting area where players can improve their shot, while simulating being on ice with a specialized surface. The second area will be the actual weight room with free weights and workout machines. Along with that will be a cardio center for players to improve conditioning while also being able to test for various body metrics. The fourth and final segment of the new space will be a coaches/media room.

"We are delighted and thankful to have such supportive alumni who give back to the program and the University. Their generous support will allow us to continue to grow our program and compete at the highest level of collegiate hockey," Miami head coach Enrico Blasi said. "We feel the facility upgrade will greatly benefit our student-athletes while also adding to the appeal of Steve 'Coach' Cady Arena and confirming its place as one of the top hockey facilities in the NCAA."
