The Richmond Roller Hockey League - RRHL fall season is currently on hold. The Ozone, our home rink, has closed. It is our understanding that the rink will not be opening back up.
We are currently evaluating our options. The RRHL (formally CVYRHL) has been providing youth and adults the opportunity to play hockey since 1993. We are determined to keep it going but will need time to figure out exactly how we are going to move forward.
We will provide regular updates as we work through this.
The RRHL is mourning the passing of Pat O’Reilly. His passed away suddenly on August 31st.
Pat joined our hockey program around the year 2000 when his son took up hockey. Pat immediately became a volunteer for the youth league. Over the years, he served as a coach, referee, and a commissioner responsible for managing one of our age divisions. All three of Pat’s children participated in the youth league.
Pat was a part of the Richmond Rattlers travel hockey program. He coached the ‘96 Rattlers and created one of the most competitive teams in the organization. They traveled the east coast and had tremendous success as a team.
Pat had a career change in 2009 and opened up The Ozone. He remained passionate about youth hockey and continued to help grow hockey in Richmond.
A few years back, the RRHL lost access to Ashland Skateland for the youth and adult leagues. Pat welcomed us into his rink and it was a positive move for the organization.
Over the years, Pat would do everything he could to support the league. He helped keep hockey affordable for our families and never turned down a request to help us out.
Pat will be missed. His reach goes well beyond hockey. Please take some time to pray for Pat’s family.

The following items are REQUIRED:
The following equipment is OPTIONAL:
This is the most important piece of equipment. There is a big difference between skates (wheels) made for the outdoors and indoors. Wheels used outside are typically hard and sometimes even plastic. Wheels made for the inside are softer and are made of rubber. If you try to use outdoor wheels, especially plastic ones, it's extremely hard. If you use your indoor wheels outside, you will ruin them in a short period of time. Skates also can't have any bolts or medal sticking out. These are often found on outdoor skates or old skates. The bolts will cause damage to the playing surface.
Skates MUST HAVE a full set of wheels. A player can't start a game with an empty slot for a wheel. The risk of injury to another player and risk to rink damage increases.
The Registration "Home" is not currently available.
In the event of inclement weather, the league will provide updates on our league phone number, Facebook, and this website. Because we might not have access to update the website, it would be good to check 2 sources if you are concerned.

Rinks around Virginia have pulled together to form a league that allows for "all star" type teams from each rink to play against each other. The divisions include Elementary School, Middle School, and High School.
It's not a huge commitment of time. We will practice some and the games are generally once a month. The cost is minimal.
The registration process includes a question around interest in RSL. If you respond "yes", we will evaluate your son/daughter for a spot on the team. We may or may not hold tryouts for the teams. Our preference at this time is to evaluate the players during games without putting them through the stress of a formal tryout. Responding "yes" is not an agreement to play. We will share more information with you and you can make a decision at a later time on whether you are interested.
Games run November through February. Usually 5 game dates over the course of that time period.
The Richmond Roller Hockey League, or RRHL, is located in Ashland, Virginia and plays at Ozone. The league started in 1992, as the Central Virginia Youth Roller Hockey League (CVYRHL). The league name changed to the RRHL when the organization earned it's non-profit status in 1996. We are a big family that loves hockey and we have a ball when we play!
