Hello new and returning Rutland Amateur Hockey families. Our 2018-2019 season registration is now live on our website (www.rahavt.org)! Please know our registration deadline for returning players is July 15th, 2018...after this date the rate will increase by $100. This deadline is extremely important for team registrations with Vermont and USA Hockey.
Our rates for the 2018-2019 season are the same as last year. There will be a $30 charge this season for travel teams 10U-14U, as we are updating our jerseys for all teams at these age levels. All players at these age levels will be ordering new, customized jersey sets and socks that will be used for as long as the jerseys fit and throughout players' RAHA careers, and the newly-formed RAHA Jersey Endowment will pay for the cost difference. Thank you to Rutland Veterinary Clinic an Surgical Center for helping to make this a reality! Uniform orders will be handled later in the summer.
To begin the registration process you will need to have a SportsEngine account; Click on the "Create an Account" tab in the upper left of our website to create a SportsEngine account. You will also need to be registered with USA Hockey prior to registering with RAHA; go to https://www.usahockeyregistration.com/login_input.action to create a USA Hockey registration. Once your SportsEngine and USA Hockey accounts have been created, click on the "Click here to Begin Online Registration" tab. There will be five optional payment installments, occurring July-November (on 15th of each month), or you can pay in-full.
As part of this year's registration we will need "USA Hockey Consent to Treat" and "Participant Code of Conduct" forms for each player. Please print these forms out at home (they are located on the right-hand side of our registration page) and mail the completed forms to:
P.O. Box 455
Rutland, VT 05702
Returning this season will be our Mite Lite Program. Several years ago we had great success with the Mite Lite offering for players aged 4-6. We had ice on early Saturday mornings and the Mite Lites would also take part in the Monday or Tuesday ADM with the older Mites. We have found that often times the 4-6 year olds are intimidated by the 7-8 year olds and development is hindered. We are hoping that the re-establishment of this program helps to build our younger player numbers. Is it mandatory for kids this age? No, but developmentally we feel it may be the best option.
Please help RAHA out and spread the word about this registration and the upcoming season. We aim to grow our numbers in the upcoming season and the best way to help make that happen is to encourage others to come out and play! Encourage new families to check out our website for the latest news and information.
Any requests for scholarship assistance must be received by June 30th, 2018 and mailed to our P.O. Box (RAHA, P.O. Box 455, Rutland, VT 05702). Scholarship forms are located on our website.

Hello Past and Present RAHA Coaches-
Castleton University has graciously donated space at Spartan Arena for our organization to display/mount any and all RAHA trophies and awards that have been won over the years. We feel this is a great opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of past teams and hopefully build on them in the future.
If you are in possession of a RAHA trophy, plaque, or award, we would love to get it displayed at Spartan Arena! If you know of someone that has one that may not be on this email distribution list...please reach out to them.
We will be collecting awards as follows:
RAHA has been granted permission to mount plaques on the wall as well as display in a glass/wood display case. If anyone knows of one that is available by donation or cheap, max. dimensions 44" x 88", please email me.
Please spread the word.
