The SPFAS is truly a facility built by the community, for the community. In May of 1968 the first Sportsman's Dinner was held to implement a fundraising campaign for a new ice arena. The Red Dutton Arena was officially opened two years later, in September 1970. The facility was further enhanced in 1972 by the addition of dressing rooms, bleachers, washrooms and a multi-purpose room. The most recent advancement of the Red Dutton Arena occured in 2015 when the rink boards were replaced entirely with the most current technology.
In 1975 the Springbank Community High School was built as an adjacent facility and, subsequently, a joint use facility agreement was established between SPFAS and Rocky View School Division #41. Enrollment at that time was 125 students. An additional construction phase occurred in 1979 when the curling rink was constructed by the Springbank Curling Club. In 1986 an agreement was reached between the Curling Club and the SPFAS Board to unite the curling facility with the rest of the facility, from an operational perspective.
In 1995 Rocky View School Division #41 completed an expansion and modernization at Springbank Community High School. The expansion was implemented to meet the increased enrollment created by the residential development in the surrounding area. The expansion of the Springbank Community High School has impacted land utilization on the site.
In 1998, Joe Phillips generously provided his financial support towards the construction of an additonal Arena. The SPFAS built this Arena as part of its 1997/98 Facility Expansion Project. To honor, respect and remember his many years of commitment to the Springbank Community, the SPFAS dedicated its second Arena to the legacy created by Joe Phillips.
