Sponsorship Information


Richmond Minor Hockey Association's 2017/18 Sponsorship Program


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. 

While our Association has excellent commitment through the parents and volunteers, we must rely on outside sources to sustain our quality programs. Sponsorship has always played a vital role in the development of our minor hockey program and we are very grateful to all the sponsors that have, and continue to be involved with Richmond Minor Hockey. 

As a business owner and member of our community, we would like to extend an invitation for you to sponsor RMHA, one of more of our special projects or tournaments and/or one of our teams. Your contributions will be beneficial to ensuring that Richmond Minor Hockey can continue to offer excellent hockey programs for our youth in Richmond.
