Directions

From Minneapolis, take I-35W North to the 95th Ave NE exit. Turn right onto 95th Ave, which turns into Radisson Road. Follow Radisson until you turn left onto 105th Ave NE. This route is signed to the NSC from the I-35W exit. The NSC buildings are south of 105th Ave NE. The majority of the fields are on the north side, between 105th and 109th Avenues.

  • Welcome Center: After passing the first stoplight at Davenport Street, take the first right turn available. The Welcome Center is straight ahead at the end of the entrance drive. The Administrative Offices, Fairview's Institute of Athletic Medicine, and events and meetings are in this building.
  • Schwan Super Rink: Follow directions to the Welcome Center and then turn left at the end of the entrance drive. Park in front of the main entrance for all rinks.There is also an entrance for rinks 5-8 on the southeast corner of the building.
  • Victory Links Golf Course: From 105th Ave NE, proceed 0.7 miles east and turn right (south). This is the third driveway past the stoplight at Davenport Street. Proceed south on that driveway to the parking lot at the end. The clubhouse sits on a hill and the pro shop is in the lower level on the south side of the clubhouse.
  • Velodrome: Due to school construction, access the NSC's Main Parking Lot from 105th Ave NE. Velodrome parking will be on the east end of the Main Parking Lot.
  • Sports Hall: Due to school construction, access the NSC's Main Parking Lot from 105th Ave NE. Lot B (adjacent to the Sports Hall) will remain open. However, this lot will need to be accessed via the service road that circles around the east side and south side of the Stadium and alongside fields C1 and C2.
