Bend Rapids Youth Hockey was founded to support 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.

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.
