RYD Summer Hockey School

The 2018 VYHA / Rail Yard Dawgs Summer Hockey School will take place at Roanoke’s Berglund Center. The Youth Summer Hockey School will take place from Sunday, June 3 through Wednesday, June 5, 2018. The Adult Summer Hockey School will take place on Thursday, June 26, 2018. Adult participants are invited to attend the camp-opening Meet & Greet/ Registration on Sunday, June 3, 2018.

The Summer Hockey School will be a partnership between the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs (www.railyarddawgs.com) and Valley Youth Hockey Association (www.vyhroanoke.com).

The VYHA /RYD Summer Hockey School will offer the unique opportunity for the local hockey community to receive on-ice instruction from players under contract to National Hockey League teams. The eldest McGinn brother, Jamie, is currently starring at left wing for the NHL’s Florida Panthers. Tye McGinn is under contract with the Arizona Coyotes currently playing for the team’s top American Hockey League affiliate, the Tucson Roadrunners. Brock McGinn plays for the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes. Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs Head Coach Dan Bremner will be serving as On-Ice Coordinator for this year's summer hockey school.

The Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs are preparing for their third season of play in the Southern Professional Hockey League. The McGinn Brothers, along with their father & RYD President Bob McGinn, are the majority owners of the Rail Yard Dawgs. Together, the McGinn family, believes it is important to underscore their commitment to the local community and to growing the game of hockey in the Roanoke and Lynchburg areas.

Youth hockey players between the ages of 6 and 18 who have completed Learn to Play programs in Roanoke or Lynchburg are able to participate in this one-of-a-kind camp. Players will split in to age-specific groups and will receive individualized on-ice instruction from the McGinn’s and camp staff. All camp participants will receive at least one hour of on-ice instruction from these NHL-level players and coaches each day.
