Every year the Bend Rapids are fortunate to have a group of volunteers coach the youth who participate in our program. This season we are implementing an online coaching application process. We welcome applicants from all levels of experience and backgrounds. Before the season, the coaching staff will be carefully selected by the committee to make sure each individual is paired with the age/development level best suited to his/her skill level.
"The Bend Rapids Hockey Association supports growth and access to competitive ice hockey in central Oregon. We provide youth with the opportunity to have fun, pursue their athletic potential, and develop life skills in a respectful, team environment".
A short video link is included below from a Ted-X Conference held in Bend in 2014.

This video has a great message on the role of parents in youth sports and aligns with the Bend Rapids Hockey Association’s vision and mission. We look forward to a fun and rewarding 2019-20 season, see you on the ice, and GO RAPIDS!
