Raiders Program Updates - June 3, 2020

SkateQuest Pro Shop Open

As I mentioned in my email sent on the Sunday, the SkateQuest Pro Shop is currently open for drop-off of skates for sharpening and for equipment fittings by appointment only.

The Pro Shop is currently open from 9 am - 1 pm, Monday - Friday for skate sharpening and equipment fittings.  Additional details related to Pro Shop operation can be found here:  https://www.skatequest.com/announcement/

We would like to encourage you all to help support our SkateQuest rink partners and the Pro Shop by considering them first for you equipment needs.  We know that most of our players have likely grown quite a bit since they last put their skates and other equipment on, and likley will need new gear. It would certainly help the Pro Shop and rink out if we could use them to assist with any equipment needs you have.

Summer Raiders Programs

We are currently working with our rink partners (SkateQuest & Loudoun Ice Centre) to put together and finalize plans for a Raiders Summer Program for our players. It appears that Virginia is inching closer to allowing indoor rec facilities and most importantly, ice rinks to re-open, likely in the next two to threes weeks, so we will be announcing those plans as soon as we can finalize the start days and times. 

We will be working with the rinks management to determine what additional guidelines would be put in place to ensure that all of our players, coaches, and rink staff can get back on the ice in a way that best protects the health and safety of everyone.  Once we get the final details, we will share that with you all.

Travel Tryout Registration

All Tier II programs are currently allowed to open registration for Travel Tryouts, and as such, we have opened our Tryout Registration form. A good portion of the details, including tryouts dates are TBD as it's still unclear when rinks would be permitted to have the amount of players in the rink and on the ice to allow us to facilitate tryouts safely and fairly for all players. As those details finalize, including a date when Travel Tryouts will be permitted by the PVAHA we will share that info with you.

In the meantime, if you would like to register for Travel Tryouts, the registration form is online on the Raiders website and you may register your player(s).  We are not collection any tryout fees at this time and once we're in a place where we are ready to proceed and have tryout dates announced, we will comminicate that to you and you would be able to go back into your registration and pay the tryout fee.

***You can register for tryouts by clicking on the "Register Online" button on the left hand side of the homepage***

 

House Registration

Registration for our House Program for next season is not open, but we're working on setting up and determining when we will open House Registration. As in past years, we'll have an open period where returning Raiders Members can register prior to New Member registration. 

Considering the uncertainty with recovery and re-opening dates and regulations, we will likely open House Registration and not collect fees until at a time that the Club feels it's appopriate to ask for those, but it will allow us to guage interest and numbers in both of our programs.

LOCAL TRAVEL TRYOUTS - **UPDATED**

 

Our local USA Hockey Affiliate, the Potomac Valley Amatuer Hockey Association (PVAHA), released an update on local tryouts for the 2020-2021 Travel Hockey Season.  The full document is linked below if you would like to read it, but here are the highlights:

 

  • All local Tier I Programs (Washington Little Capitals, Team Maryland, and Washington Pride) may begin signing returning players to contracts on May 26th.  Those players must be registered with USA Hockey for the 2020-2021 season and also registered for that program's tryouts in order to sign the contract.
  • On June 1st, those Tier I Programs may begin signing new players for the 2020-2021 season. Again those players must be registered with USA Hockey for the 2020-2021 season and must be registered for that programs tryouts.
  • Supplemental Tryouts, fin order to fill-out any remaining roster spots, would be held for those programs once the Affiliate allows tryouts to begin.
  • Once the PVAHA has determined that all rinks can be open safely and support the numbers in the facilities that would allow tryouts to occur safely, tryouts would be allowed to commence for Tier I & Tier II Travel Programs. The Tier I Programs would have a two week period from that start date to conduct their tryouts, then the Tier II Programs can hold thier tryouts.
  • No Tier II Programs may sign players to contracts for the 2020-2021 season until Tier II tryouts have commenced.

 

Tier II Programs may begin or re-open tryout registration and the Raiders will be opening tryout registration shortly.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at president@restonraiders.com.

I hope everyone is safe and healthy.

Best Regards,

Kevin Burch
RRHC President
