RoughRiders Hockey Club (RRHC) is proud to announce the details for the RoughRiders Youth Hockey League (RYHL) & Instructional Program (IP) for the March – April session of 2024. 

Instructional Program (IP)

IP is the skills portion for all players looking to improve on their individual skills. The focus in the Instructional Program is designed to assist in the players’ individual skills such as skating, passing, puck control, shooting, and game sense. IP is a valuable program for all players as learning proper technique and/or retraining of fundamentals is vital part of success in games long term. The IP practices are designed and ran by RRHC’s Executive Director, Dustin Timm with the assistance from experienced and knowledgeable coaches within RRHC.

RoughRiders Youth Hockey League (RYHL)

RYHL will be played 3v3 or 4v4 cross-ice to maximize the number of puck touches and play making in a small area. The game of hockey is a series of small decisions and RYHL is a great place to build that.

The key benefits of this RYHL structure include:

  1. Enhanced Team Dynamics: Pre-set teams enable players to forge deeper relationships, imbuing a profound sense of unity and shared purpose within the league.
  2. Focused Coaching: Each team will be under the guidance of a designated coach, ensuring personalized feedback and skill enhancement throughout the RYHL journey.
  3. Thrilling Standings and Competition: The incorporation of standings injects an element of excitement, competition and FUN to each and every game!

Parents are encouraged to keep in mind the following details:

This RYHL structure hinges on registration numbers. Should specific age groups lack sufficient registrants, the structure might be subject to adjustments. 

To accommodate varying numbers of teams and ensure convenience, players may have games scheduled at differing times from week to week. However, all games will be held either at 5:00pm or 6:15pm on Mondays.

IP Testimonials

“The coaching and organization of IP is above anything else offered in the area. Players are on the ice at their scheduled time and actively engaged for the whole training session. Station work per the ADM model is followed precisely with each group getting the same amount of quality time at each station. The coaching staff looks professional in matching gear and interacts with each kid on a personal level. My kids have never come off the ice and stating they had a bad experience. Dustin and his crew are doing great things in the IP program and more athletes should be taking advantage of this great resource in the Cedar Rapids area.“

“Cedar Rapids IP is the reason why our kids have made vast improvements in the game. The skill-based work is so appreciated by our kids and our family. Dustin and his group are doing great things to develop well rounded hockey players. The IP program is some of the best group skill sessions my kids have ever attended and they have been to a lot!”

“Having the option of playing and paying 2 months at a time for the IP is super beneficial for our household as we cannot always commit or participate in a full season. The cost also is very effective for what they are getting out of the program. Coaching is top notch. While there are some parent coaches, coaches have a clear knowledge of the game and are there for all kids. The ADM station model is fantastic because as a family we are more worried about our children improving their skills than scrimmaging for multiple practices in a row. Also, having coaches wear the same warm-up is a game-changer. It just makes the whole program as a whole look that much more professional.”
