WHERE WE PLAY
The Lone Star Brahmas play at the NYTEX Sports Centre in North Richland Hills, Texas. The facility boasts two sheets of ice, an attached restaurant, an area for dry land training, and more! As an added benefit, the same ownership group owns the team and the facility, meaning that you will be guaranteed ice time for practices and games - something that not all teams can say. Away from the rink, Brahmas are well-taken care of. Players have access to professional massage and cryotherapy sessions, year-round golf privileges, and a top-of-the-line gym.
North Richland Hills is located in a bustling metropolitan area. Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington are all just short drives away. In addition, both D/FW International Airport and Dallas Love Field Airport are conveniently close. This means ease of travel for you, your family, and yes, scouts. In fact, the NYTEX Sports Centre is one of the most popular destinations in the NAHL South Division for scouts. The excellent quality of our HD camera feed during games also means more eyes on our players.
