The Roseville Area Youth Hockey Association (RAYHA) is on a mission to give kids ranging in the ages 4-8 years old in the Roseville area a chance to play hockey! RAYHA’s 1st Skate program is specifically designed for Roseville Area kids & families who are unfamiliar with (or completely new to) hockey. We’ll cover all the basics, and keep the focus on FUN! The cost is only $50.

The program will consist of 1 orientation meeting with off-ice activities for the kids and information for the parents, followed by 5 one-hour ice sessions (warmups, small skills/game stations, full ice games/activities).

Roseville Area Youth Hockey Association (RAYHA) is on a mission to change the preconceived perceptions about youth hockey. Often hockey is perceived as too expensive, too complicated or too competitive. RAYHA wants ALL Roseville area kids to give hockey a try!  


RAYHA has teamed up with Play It Again Sports in St. Paul to provide an equipment rental option for First Skate families.  The cost of equipment rental is $35.00 and includes the following equipment:

  • Helmet
  • Shoulder Pads
  • Elbow Pads
  • Gloves
  • Breezers (Hockey Pants)
  • Shin Pads
  • Bag

Parents are responsible for the purchase of the following items:

  • Skates  (Used skates are recommended)
  • Hockey Stick  (A wood stick is recommended)
  • Sweatpants (recommended)  OR hockey socks

The following items are not required but are encouraged:

  • Athletic supporter (Jock/Jill)
  • Mouthguard
  • Stick tape, shin tape, water bottle, etc.

If you wish to participate in this program, select the option to rent equipment during registration.  A credit card will be required to put on file and is subject to a $150.00 charge if the equipment is not returned. 

An individualized voucher will be sent to the email that you provide at registration.  Bring this voucher to the Play It Again Sport located at 145 Snelling Avenue N., St. Paul to receive your equipment.   Jerseys will be issued at the first session of First Skate and are yours to keep.

At the conclusion of the season,  equipment provided by the Association as described above shall be returned to the Equipment Director by the date specified in order to avoid the $150.00 fee.
