RoughRiders Programming Cancelled
May 31, 2020
For Immediate Release
Hello RoughRiders Family,
RoughRiders Hockey Club unfortunately announces the cancellation of all currently scheduled programming. Programs cancelled – all registrations will be refunded in the next 48 hours:
- Academy Camp – Sniper & Scoring Camp
- Academy Camp – Defense Camp
- Academy Camp – Deception, Dangles, & Dekes Camp
This decision was not made lightly, but Linn County Public Health has determined that ice hockey, as a contact sport, is not cleared to return to play under current COVID-19 restrictions. Furthermore, ImOn Ice Arena has a well overdue infrastructure update to the building’s operating systems, and a timeline of these updates does not provide an opportunity for currently scheduled programs to occur.
There are other rinks around the state that may be providing opportunities to play hockey; however, RRHC will not pursue the rental of ice at these facilities until ice hockey is officially allowed to return to play. Our number one priority is the safety of our players, families, and staff. Once hockey can return, we will explore options, and if an opportunity arises that works well for our club’s goals we will move forward.

From all our staff and Board of Directors at RRHC, we hope this finds everyone healthy and safe during these times.
