Maysa Arena is a multi-purpose venue located on South Hill in Minot, North Dakota. The name Maysa is an acronym for Minot Area Youth Skating Association, a group that proposed the construction of the two-rink arena in the 1990s.[3] The $3.9 million arena on the Burdick Expressway was opened in October 2000. The arena is home to the Minot Minotauros of the North American Hockey League and the Minot State Beavers men's ice hockey of the American Collegiate Hockey Association. There are currently plans to expand Maysa Arena by adding a third sheet of ice. Current plans for the third rink would provide seating for 1,400 to 1,900 people with a balcony with standing room for an additional 300 to 500 people.[4][5] The expansion is estimated to cost between $5.5 million and $7 million[6] The MAYSA Expansion Committee hopes to have the project completed by 2014.
