2024 RYD Summer Hockey School

VYHA / RYD Hockey School Is Back!

The 2024 VYHA / Rail Yard Dawgs Hockey School will take place at Lancerlot Sports Complex, home of the Roanoke Jr. Dawgs and Valley Youth Hockey Association. 

The Youth Summer Hockey School will take place from July 23-25, 2024.

 

The Summer Hockey School will be a partnership between the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs (www.railyarddawgs.com) and Valley Youth Hockey Association (www.roanokeyouthhockey.com).

 

The VYHA / RYD Summer Hockey School will offer the unique opportunity for the local hockey community to receive on-ice interaction with professional hockey players and staff including the McGinn brothers, as well as Dan Bremner and select Roanoke Railyard Dawgs players. VYHA coaches will also participate in on ice instruction.

 

The Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs have wrapped up another successful season in the SPHL and are excited to share their hockey expertise with youth in the community this summer. The McGinn Brothers, Brock, Jamie, and Tye, along with their father & RYD Chairman of the Board Bob McGinn, are the majority owners of the Rail Yard Dawgs. The McGinn family, believes it is important to underscore their commitment to the local community and to growing the game of hockey in Roanoke and the surrounding areas.

 

Youth hockey players between the ages of 6 and 18 who have completed, at minimum, a Learn to Play program (and have received all Dawg bones) are able to participate in this one-of-a-kind camp. Players will split in to age-specific groups and will receive individualized on-ice instruction from camp staff. 

 

GROUP 1: Ages 6u/8u/10u

GROUP 2: Ages 12u and Above

 

*Players will be grouped by age, with consideration given for skill and experience. Group assignments will be confirmed no later than July 15. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.*
