Home for the Terriers is the Farrell Agencies Arena in the Gallagher Centre, Yorkton's newly renovated and expanded recreation complex.
Along with the arena, the Centre houses an indoor lane swimming pool with waterslide and leisure water recreation areas, sauna, hot tub, meeting and convention facilities, a fieldhouse used for soccer, volleyball, track, trade shows, entertainment events and more, and an eight-sheet curling club.
The Terriers have their own dressing room, training room/player lounge, skate sharpening, offices for coaching and administration staff, and a popular souvenir shop in the main lobby. Free gym memberships are provided to the players at a downtown facility.
Full room and board is provided at the expense of the hockey club and at no cost to the players. Players are billeted with host families within Yorkton, who have been screened by the team to ensure the players have a good home. Players without vehicles are billeted with teammates who do, so that rides to and from the rink and school are not a problem.
High school classes are available to all players. Yorkton has both a public and a Catholic high school, and both schools have counselors who work closely with the hockey club to ensure that players classes are co-ordinated with game and practice schedules. Tutoring is also available if required.
University classes are available through the local regional college. The first two years of university can be completed in Yorkton. Players are reimbursed their tuition fees on successful completion of university classes. Help is also available to prepare players for SAT exams, and NCAA clearinghouse requirements.
Terrier and SJHL games are scouted extensively by NCAA colleges, Canadian universities, minor pro and NHL teams. Scouts are provided with player profiles and information by the coaching staff to keep them informed about the accomplishments of players. The Terrier and league web sites also provide player details and stats.
Yorkton, with a population of about 19,000, is the largest centre in the SJHL. It has a large retail trading area of about 200,000 people, which means that all essential stores and services, including big-box stores, are located in the city.
It is the largest community on the Yellowhead Highway between Winnipeg (4.5 hours east) and Saskatoon (3.25 hours west). Regina is less than two hours away to the south.
The city has ample accommodation facilities, several excellent golf courses in or near the city, and lots of hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, skiing and other outdoor activities at nearby provincial parks.
The Gallagher Centre, where the Farrell Agencies Arena is the home of the Terriers, is one of the finest such recreation centres in the province.
Yorkton is the media centre for eastern Saskatchewan and western Manitoba, with two local newspapers, two radio stations, television stations, and two cable TV outlets that provide live game broadcasts and extensive coverage of the team and the league.
