Summer FUN!!

Hello RAHYA Families, 

Hopefully your summer is off to a great start! Here are some fun ideas which incorporate hockey practice, seeing RAYHA friends and reading..

Puck Shooting Contest

10,000 Pucks is designed to allow players to track their shots 365 days a year. Each summer we run a contest to see who can shoot the most pucks - this contest runs from June 1 - August 31. Players can begin tracking shots any time, but only shots logged during the contest dates will count toward the contest totals. Our goal with this platform is not simply focused on the quantity of shots, but on the setting and achieving of goals for hockey players. Best of all, 10k Pucks is free for all users.  Click here for the link.

Reading and Math Websites

Check out these links for great reading lists, math activities and summer fun ideas.  

Book Lists/Free Printables and Imagination Soup

Reading/Shooting Calendar & 101 Fun Ideas

Use the specially designed calendar to help keep track of shooting and reading all summer long!  Or, find some cool or unique summer ideas to keep your kids busy....

Purse/Prize Bingo

For some adult fun and to support Joe Sensor's, Grumpy's and the Roseville Bingo Hall, see the calendar below for times, events and prizes.

Calendar Directions

Have your child circle the month and set a reading and shots goal.  Then fill in the date in each white square.  Now your child is set to check off or fill in the little circle each day he/she reads or take shots.  Enjoy!!!

A Letter From the President

Happy Summer!

There are many great projects happening within our association this summer. For the 2018-2019 RAYHA board, this is the time we are the busiest, working to set up this upcoming year for success. We would like to thank all of the families for their high level of commitment to Roseville hockey. We have an amazing and strong community/family based youth hockey association that I am proud to be apart of. We know as a board how much time and energy making the commitment to play Roseville Hockey takes.  I strongly advocate to all association members to volunteer and try to enrich to the organization in any way possible. We are always looking for volunteers and have many new exciting opportunities this year.

As I stated in my previous letter, one of my primary goals as President is to improve communication from the board to the association. As part of this effort to improve communication, I wanted to send an annual timeline of events out to our families.  This timeline highlights many of the big events for the year. The 2018-2019 RAYHA board wants to give families an opportunity to schedule their school/hockey year, plan a fun family vacation over MEA, or to simply block off important dates on the calendar so you can plan accordingly.

Lastly, if you have any used “smaller” hockey equipment that is in good shape; please consider donating it to RAYHA’s 1st Skate program, which is a great way for families to try hockey for the first time.


Please stay tuned for more emails on some exciting happenings that the board is working on this summer!  We will be posting regular updates and news on the RAYHA website and social media channels, as well as sending regular updates via email. We invite you to like us on Facebook at, heart us on Instagram @raiderhockeymn or tweet us on Twitter @raiderhockeymn if you haven't already.


I hope everyone is enjoying their new summer routines and taking advantage of the glorious weather we have been having! Before we know it, this summer will fly by us and we will be heading into everyone’s favorite season: Hockey!


Have a great weekend,
Gretchen Hopeman
RAYHA President
