Up for election this year are 3 positions on the Steering Committee; Chair, Secretary, and Registrar. Head to the ELECTIONS page for all the details including candidate submitted statements.
Voting is now open. Eligible members of the Bend Rapids in good standing received emails with voting instructions. Voting closes June 7. Results announced June 11 at the annual Members Meeting.
Registration is open way earlier that previous seasons? Why? The sooner we get rosters built, teams staffed with coaches and managers, the sooner teams can identify those in-demand tournaments and get them on the calendar. Uniforms arrive on time. Lots of reasons.
Just because the Pavilion won’t have ice for nearly 5 months, doesn’t mean the ball stops rolling behind the scenes at the Steering Committee. Last season the Rapids played more teams from more states than ever before. The reach of our youth hockey club continues to expand. The momentum is real. Join us!
Begin your journey with the Season Updates page.
18U - Most likely September (or possibly late August). Similar to previous years tryout/evaluation schedules and would include additional pre-season skate sessions.
16U AA - May 27 - Details and registration here.
14U/12U - If we can secure enough ice time during 18U tryouts, we hope to add 14U and 12U to that schedule. If not, then two options are being considered. Option A) September which would include additional pre-season skate sessions or B) October during the first week of ice at the Pavilion.
10U/8U - No tryouts required.
Committee positions opening soon. Email the Chair to inquire about opportunities to contribute your passion to the success of our hockey club!

We offer teams at the 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U AA, and 18U levels for seasons that begin in October and run through March. Players travel to Portland, Sherwood, Eugene, Medford and Klamath Falls for games and tournaments with other youth hockey leagues in the state. Some regional events are also held out of state. Fees to participate vary at each level. Scholarships are available to ensure that every child in Central Oregon has access to playing the incredible sport of hockey.
