Lots of kids play! Rice Lake is one of more than 90 youth hockey associations statewide. In Rice Lake alone there were more than 100 kids participating in hockey last year.
Girls can play too! Currently Rice Lake has several girls that play on our youth teams. Although we do not have a WIAA high school girls team, many move on to play for area girls co-op teams once they age out of the youth program. Two of our Rice Lake girls even played for the State Champion girls team in 2016!
Hockey is exciting to play and watch! For both the players on the ice and parents in the stands, hockey games are fast and exciting!
Everybody is part of the action! Unlike some youth sports, there aren’t just a few kids in the key positions. In hockey everyone shares in the fun and action. A youth hockey team generally fields (and needs) twice as many kids as a basketball team, and everybody plays! That is huge!
Hockey is for all sizes! You don’t have to be big to play hockey well. Whether you’re big or small, any player can contribute to the success of their team.
Hockey is a lifetime sport! Men and women of all ages play in recreational hockey leagues for years and decades after leaving youth hockey.
LETS PLAY HOCKEY!
We want to keep RLHA Alumni updated on things going on at the rink and within the Association. Be sure to register on our Alumni Registration so that we can keep a running list of all former players from youth through high school and beyond.
