RYD Summer Hockey School

Valley Youth Hockey Association is partnering with the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs to offer the 2nd Annual VYHA/RYD Summer Hockey School. The 2017 Summer Hockey School will offer local players the chance to skate and learn with Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs owners and current NHL players at Roanoke’s Berglund Center this summer. From June 21 through June 25, enjoy the opportunity to participate in practice sessions and games coached by Jamie, Tye and Brock McGinn. On-ice instruction, off-ice interaction, and coaching by professional players will help prepare hockey school participants for the upcoming youth hockey season.
