Our mission is to promote Minor Hockey in Richmond for participants of all ages & skill levels, building confidence by developing our players, referees & coaches, while competing in a fun, safe & sportsmanlike environment.
Richmond Minor Hockey Association (RMHA) was established in 1965. We are a Tier One association and we are members in good standing of Hockey Canada, B.C. Hockey and Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association. Our organization is administered exclusively by volunteers. The Board of Directors of Richmond Minor Hockey Association is dedicated to providing the youth of Richmond British Columbia with the best hockey experience possible.
We offer ice hockey programs for children and youth of all ages. Each year, new hockey players are welcomed into our Hockey One, The First Shift and our Jntro to Hockey program. Experienced hockey players register in Hockey 2, 3, 4, Atom, PeeWee, Bantam, Midget and Juvenile. At the Atom, PeeWee, Bantam, Midget and Juvenile levels, we offer both "C" (also known as "House") and "Rep" programs.
Why Choose Richmond Minor Hockey?
At Richmond Minor Hockey (RMHA) we strive to provide the best hockey experience possible for players of all ages and all abilities. We offer the following advantages which are included in our (all-inclusive) registration fees:
Our registration fees include team practices, games and skill development sessions.
Our skill development sessions are led by an impressive team of professional coaches. Glenn Wheeler is our Director of Player and Coach Development. Milan Dragicevic (formerly Head Coach of the UBC Thunderbirds and the first Head Coach of the Vancouver Giants) is just one of many instructors who work with Glenn.
Most* players (skaters and goalies) in Hockey 2 through Midget 'A' have an opportunity to attend professional Skills Development sessions in addition to team practices and games. This program runs from mid September through the end of February giving each player an opportunity to attend approximately 20 on-ice Skills Development sessions throughout the season.
Skaters receive instruction in all areas including stick handling, shooting, defensive play and more, as provided by Glenn and his team of coaches. Goalie training will be provided by dedicated goalie coaches.
