Welcome to the Bend Rapids!

About the Rapids

The Bend Rapids are a USA Hockey sanctioned program located in Central Oregon. 

The Rapids field teams at 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, and 18U. Our competition consists of programs from Pacific Northwest, Northern California and Idaho. In previous seasons we have played against teams from Portland, Eugene, Medford, Klamath Falls, San Jose, Santa Rosa, Seattle, Everett, Tri-Cities, Vancouver (WA) and Boise.

Our home ice is The Pavilion in Bend which is operated by the Bend Park and Recreation District. The season commences in late October and ends in mid-March (weather permitting).

Mission Statement

The Bend Rapids Youth Hockey Club, a USA Hockey Affiliate, is a community and volunteer based organization that 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 and safe team environment. 

Vision Statement

We are focused on increasing participation in all ice sports, with like minded individuals and groups, by building a new ice sport facility in the Central Oregon region. By continuing to follow USAH guidelines we will develop all players at all age groups, as well as Elite Tier 2, within the next 5 seasons and contribute to Tier 1 at the State level, creating Nationally Bound teams.

Bend Ice

In 2010 Bend Ice was formed as an Oregon non-profit corporation for the purpose of creating a culture of ice sports in Central Oregon. Bend Ice receives oversight and policy direction from its board of directors, officers, and committee chairpersons, with the assistance of dedicated volunteers. In 2015, the Oregon State Hockey Association (OSHA) recognized Bend Ice as a “local association” of the USA Hockey Pacific District. As such, Bend Ice is responsible for managing and operating all USA Hockey sanctioned programs in Central Oregon. Bend Ice also oversees the Bend Ice Figure Skating Club and the Bend Curling Club.

Bend Ice created a USA Hockey Steering Committee, which is responsible for administering local USA Hockey programs and conducting the day-to-day operations of the local USA Hockey association on behalf of Bend Ice. This local program was named the Bend Rapids Youth Hockey Club. The Bend Rapids Youth Hockey Club (BRYHC) is governed by many guiding documents including rules, regulations and policies established by Bend Ice, OSHA, USA Hockey and the various documents created by The Rapids Steering Committee.
