RRHC Mission & Vision
RRHC (RoughRiders Hockey Club) seeks to build local and regional awareness about the benefits youth hockey offers by investing in the physical and emotional development of players so they may serve as advocates and ambassadors for the sport throughout their lives.
The mission of RRHC is to provide a consistent training framework and environment designed to optimize the skill development of young athletes in a positive atmosphere of appropriately matched competition where sportsmanship and personal enjoyment are the top priorities.
RRHC Core Values
We accept and invite every player regardless of their ability or family situation. It is our goal to have every participant enjoy hockey while removing barriers such as talent ability and socioeconomic status. From our most skilled athletes, down to our beginners who are experiencing the game for the first time, we believe that our diversity makes us all better by providing opportunities to develop our skills as well as our leadership, compassion, and tolerance.
We want to create an environment that every player, family, coach, and volunteer wants to take part in. A driving force of growth is our ability to retain every person in pursuit of becoming a model association. This includes proper skill development, a strong family balance, and maintaining our volunteers on our coaching and operations staff through effective communication and teaching.
Long Term Athlete Development
It is our goal to not only create good players today, but to create players and athletes for tomorrow. We provide structured, progressive practice planning, and coach training for every level in our program so that each child’s experience is valuable and consistent. We are committed to providing all kids with a strong, fundamental set of skills and strategies that will prepare them with the ability and confidence to pursue hockey competitively, or recreationally, as they choose.
Creating Leaders Today, for Tomorrow
There is an opportunity to raise humble and good athletes within this association and the game of hockey. We want to strive every day to give our players opportunities to learn and be a leader by teaching them the importance of respect, passion, desire, sportsmanship, commitment, and integrity.
