Included below are important excerpts from the RFYHA COVID mitigation document. The full version and an abbreviated one-pager are available on our website at www.rfhockey.com.
Arrival and Departure: Plan to arrive no sooner than 15-minutes before an event (practice or game) with your player dressed as much as possible. Plan to depart within 15-minutes of the end of the event.
No Hockey Bags: Because players are arriving fully dressed, there should not be a need for hockey bags in the Wildcat Centre. Do not bring hockey bags inside to the best of your ability.
Face Masks: Governor Evers is asking everyone over 5 years old to wear a mask indoors. The order provides exceptions for some categories of people like those having trouble breathing, i.e. skating.
NOTE: Per MN Hockey District 2; Coaches are required to wear a mask when on the bench but is not required during practice/on the ice.
Social Distancing: Respect the space of others and be mindful of social distancing as to limit the spread of any infection by maintaining 6-feet of distance.
Do not congregate in shared and common areas to the best of your ability.
Stay home if you are sick: If you or your skater has any of the symptoms listed in the mitigation plan have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within 48 hours of their symptoms, or have pending results from a COVID-19 test.
Calendars: The calendar for team schedules are found on our website and is updated through the end of October. To only view a specific calendar, you will click the "Show Tab Menu" button and select individual calendars.
Welcome and have a fun and exciting season!

We are in the process of making the RFYHA website as smooth as the ice at the Wildcat Centre is before the first skates hit it. You may find previous features, content, and information briefly unavailable as we make this transition.
If something is not working, contact the webmaster directly.
Go to the Registration Page for all of the information for registering your child 2020-2021 hockey season for the Blackcats, Learn to Skate, Mites, PeeWees, and Bantams.
You can still register your skater for Learn to Skate and be put on the waiting list.
RFYHA introduce kids to the fundamentals of skating through their Learn to Skate Program!
Learn to Skate is open to ALL children ages 4-7 who have not previously skated with the RFYHA. Skaters must reside within the River Falls, Ellsworth and Prescott School Districts.
The Learn to Skate program is designed to introduce kids to the fundamentals of skating, being safe and having fun on the ice! Equipment is available to use for free and is on a first-come-first-served basis.
Within hours after the announcement of the winner of the Kraft Hockeyville Contest, our communities continue to rally around the River Falls Youth Hockey Association! We have had multiple inquiries about how they can donate to the RFYHA. With nothing currently in place for direct donations, the RFYHA created a Give Lively donation page.
The RFYHA is a 501(c) (3) Charitable Organization. Donations to the RFYHA are tax-deductible.
We cannot thank everyone enough for the past, present, and future support of our communities.
