    Tonight's Meeting Agenda

    TRYOUT LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

    Hello RAYHA families,

    I hope you have enjoyed the warm up ice sessions. Thank you all for attending and being so excited for this upcoming 2019-2020 season. 

    As tryouts start today, I want to remind you to please review the tryout times and black and silver groups outlined on the Tryout page located on the Rayha website.  All players at the Squirt, Peewee, and Bantam levels should attend the first two nights of their tryout (i.e. Squirt Silver group attends both Silver 1 and Silver 2 sessions, Peewees attend both Peewee Session 1 and Peewee Session 2 , etc.).  Further instructions if you need them are posted on the Tryout Tab of the website after the second session for each group. In addition, please watch your emails and the website for additional information on our girls tryouts which start October 3rd. 

    Tryouts are a time of high anxiety on the part of players, parents, administrators and coaches. We need to go through it in order to form teams and begin the upcoming 2019-2020 season. In spite of the stress and anxiety that tryouts generate, this is a great time for parents to help their kids face some of the realities in life and how to deal with adversity. Life lessons aren’t always on the ice: they are in the locker room, on the playground, and in everyday life challenges and successes. 

    Tell the kids to go out, try their hardest, and most importantly: have fun! Trust the process. We want to ensure that every child is placed at the appropriate level in order for them to succeed as a player, as a teammate, as a student, as a sibling and most important as a person of the RAYHA/Roseville community. 

    It may seem when you receive their results it is not what you wanted. However, by the end of the season you may realize the result was what your family needed.

     

    Go Raiders,
    Gretchen Hopeman
