It has been a busy and exciting time at RoughRiders Hockey Club (RRHC) these past weeks and this week coming up. This past weekend was the start of the November/December IP and RYHL session. Thank you to all of the coaches and volunteers that stepped up to assist with the first session in my absence. The association also seen their first tournament of the season for the 12U teams take place in Madison, WI. We have the Try Hockey For Free event coming this Saturday. The 8U travel teams (advanced and intermediate) are headed to Des Moines this weekend for their first jamboree.
Try Hockey For Free
We are still in need of several volunteers for this weekend's event. We still need coaches and people to assist with the check-in process. You can sign up for volunteering below, or email me directly. I have already had several travels players ask to assist with the event as a part of their community service time needed for school, or they want to just be a part of helping this program grow! If your player is interested in helping please let me know.
Apparel has arrived. It will be handed out on Tuesday. There are items still waiting to arrive and we are aware of the missing items and they are predicted to arrive by the third week of November. Do not stress if you receive your apparel and there is a note in there of missing items. We will get it taken care of.
Spring/Summer Camps and Teams
We have our initial plan and details for the spring and summer camps. Our goal is to have everything released and finalized by December 10th. This includes next year tryout dates as well. Our goal is to provide a schedule of the summer to all of our families by the 10th to ensure you have ample time to plan. We will be enforcing very strict maximum numbers of players for all of our camps, so, I'd advise to not wait till the last minute! Our goal is to ensure we have a strong coach-to-player ratio in all of our camps.
RRHC Players of the Month
Reminder coaches that submissions for players of the month are due today! These players will be honored at this weekend's USHL game on November 10th!
Need to order RRHC Socks? Or need a different size?
See Staci and Shawn at the ticket booth area on Monday evening, November 5th at 6:30-7:00pm to get sized and fitted. We'll be ready prior to practice - so your player can get their gear on and not feel late on the ice for speed skating. To place your order on Monday, we'll need to collect funds of $26 cash or check. We'll then place the order on Tuesday as we're going to try to get them ordered and shipped ASAP.
House Hockey - RYHL & IP
The first RYHL/IP day was this past weekend. If you still haven't registered for the session and would like to participate in the session there is still time to get registered. Also, we are still missing several jerseys from last session. We need these back ASAP!
