Yesterday we received the Phase 2 reopening details and we are preparing to reopen on a limited basis. During phase 2 there will be no public sessions.
We are working on Hockey and Figure skating programs in line with the Phase 2 restrictions. We will be offering power skating sesssions and skills sessions for the hockey players. We don't have times or the structure of the sessions as yet. Once we get it all sorted it we will post the details on the HRYHA and Iceland websites.
Hopefully Phase 3 happens quickly and we can get back to a more normal schedule.
Please do not call Iceland as they are unable to field lots of calls and get ready to reopen at the same time.
Details will be posted on the web sites and I will email the information to everyone the details as they are finalized.
Thanks for your patience and we will get you informed.
We hope everyone is coping well with these very unusual and difficult times. We are getting ready to reopen once we get clearance from the state of Virginia on reopening guidelines. During the shutdown we have redone the ice surface and it is looking great. Still in the process of building the ice but it will be ready soon. We have also updated the bathrooms and did some internal paint work and upgraded parts of the ice refrig system.
A big thanks to the Warrior for Life Fund and they donated the cost of redoing the ice and the installation of new partitions in the bathrooms.
Details on the summer programs and the Fall season will be released soon. Still waiting for information from the state and also USA Hockey. We will keep you posted as we work out the details.
We have had a lot of calls asking when we are going to reopen and all we can say is stand by and we will let you know as soon as we can. More to come

Based on the decisions today March 30th by the State of Virginia Iceland will be closed for all activities until June 11th. See below:

Face-off for Heroes Sailors assigned to Naval Special Warfare (NSW) participated in the inaugural “Face off for Heroes” (FOFH) hockey games in Boston, Oct. 26, 2019 and New York City, Oct. 27, 2019. Four SEAL operators played in two hockey games alongside former professional and hockey hall of fame players. “In addition to the excitement of the sporting event where NSW players wore the uniform of the Bruins and Rangers Alumni Teams, the weekend’s events offered service members and families an opportunity for respite from the stressors of life in NSW,” said Capt. Ryan Croley, deputy NSW Group-2 commodore. “FOFH provided an opportunity for stressed families to reconnect, which can be incredibly healing.” The Boston Bruins Foundation and the Warrior for Life Fund (WFLF), a co-beneficiary of the Navy SEAL Foundation and a 501(c) (3) charitable organization, hosted FOFH to honor the military, their sacrifices and their families. “WFLF was established in 2019 to provide infrastructure, therapeutic sports programs, and support to Gold Star Families in support of NSW and military veterans,” said Croley. “For NSW hockey players, especially those who have retired or are nearing retirement, playing hockey is just as much therapeutic as it is about competition. Playing hockey has a way of clearing the mind for guys who may be struggling with fatigue, posttraumatic injuries and other ailments that they have acquired over their time in service. It is a game that has created bonds and lasting memories for a number of SEALs and their families. Some have said that playing hockey and engaging in ‘play’ has significantly changed their lives for the better.” WFLF, originally known as the Virginia Beach Hockey Club, has hosted over 14 NSW memorial hockey games that have been attended by more than 550 NSW players and families over the past five years. For more information about the Warrior for Life Fund, visit www.warriorforlifefund.org.
Below is a brief clip from the Warrior for Life Fund event in Boston featuring the Boston Bruin Alumni vs the New York Ranger Alumni teams. This event was a tremendous success and more details will be posted soon. Games were played in Boston and the following day in New York at Madison Square Garden. Check out the link below:

TO REGISTER FOR TRY HOCKEY FOR FREE
The Hampton Roads Youth Hockey Association will conduct a USA Hockey Try Hockey for Free Day Saturday November 9th, 2019 10:00am at Iceland Family Skating Center.
The Hampton Roads Youth Hockey Association wants to encourage kids, ages 4 to 9. We will have limited equipment available for use. Our top HRYHA coaches will be on the ice to assist your child in learning the basics. Your son or daughter does not need any previous skating or hockey experience.
Welcome back to the Fall 2019-2020 Hockey season. Below is the practice schedule and some guidelines.
Monday: 6:40pm U14/U18 Bn/Mg
Tuesday : 6:00pm U8 Cross Ice Mites
7:00pm U10 Squirts
8:00pm U12 Peewees

5:30pm U8 Cross Ice Mites
6:30pm U10 Squirts
7:30pm U12 Peewees
6:30pm U10/U12 Select Teams
Some Important Guidelines:
When you arrive for practice, check the board for locker room assignments and proceed directly to the locker rooms with your gear. All players must get dressed in their assigned locker rooms and all player equipment bags must be in the locker room.
All players are required to wear neck guards and mouthpieces. Iceland will have items on hand for purchase.
Roller blades and roller hockey is prohibited in the rink.
No puck or ball shooting anywhere in the rink area including the locker room areas.
If you need jerseys they can be purchased at Iceland. Keep in mind that the jerseys are changing for the 2020-2021 season so you you can still use you current jerseys then that would be the best.
Players cannot enter the ice area until the zam doors are closed and there are coaches on the ice-no exceptions.
The first week of practices are always very chaotic so we recommend that you get to the rink at least 30 minutes prior to your practice time and get you gear to the locker room as quickly as possible. Coaches will be present to assist and answer any questions you may have.
Have fun this season.

Hampton Roads Youth Hockey and the Warrior for Life Fund (both 501c organizations) have agreed to partner to build a new ice arena facility in Virginia Beach to both promote the growth of hockey and to provide a venue to support the military community in the Tidewater area.
Below are two articles providing more details on this important project. Once completed all HRYHA programs as well as all the other activities at Iceland will move to the new facility under the Warrior for Life Fund organization.
The Warrior For Life Fund has tremendous support from the Navy Seal Foundation and the Boston Bruin Alumni and Boston Bruin Foundation. There are two fundraising hockey games planned for October 26 in Boston and October 27th in New York city between the Boston Bruin Alumni and the New York Rangers. Information on these games is on the Warrior for Life Fund site (see link below).
The efforts for this project were officially kicked off last weekend when 7 Boston Bruin Alumni attended our Hockey camp event at Iceland. The players spent 4 days touring Hampton Roads and were very impressed with the area and the level of play with our players. They also joined the Adult Sled team and played in an exhibition game. The players had a great time and were very pumped about our project.
Beginning in the 2020-2021 season HRYHA will adopt a new name and team colors. The new name will be the Hampton Roads Youth Hockey Warrior program to coincide with the new arena. New uniforms will be adopted with the Warrior for Life crest. The Warrior for life colors are red, white and blue and the new uniforms will reflect this color combination. An example of the jersey and crest are also below. These changes will not take effect until 2021.
Prior to the start of this season, we will schedule some information meetings to keep everyone up to date on our progress. We have already visited several brand new facilities and have plans to visit 2 to 3 more this fall as we prepare for the transition.
Many of our members have asked about getting involved and we will definitely accept your help. More information will follow on this. Feel free to contact Rich Appleby (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bob Pizzini (email@example.com) for information on this important project.
Below is the schedule for Friday's Bruin Alumni Event. The players who have registered to attend have been assigned to groups. If there are any other players who wish to attend, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is going to be a very crowded event and we would ask the players to come to the rink already dressed if possible and go directly to the assigned locker rooms upon arrival. Please wear your game jersey. The following Bruin Alumni members will be in attendance:
Rick Middleton, Ken Hodge, Bruce Crowder, Frank Simonetti, Tim Sweeney Sr, Tim Sweeney Jr, Bob Sweeney, and David Jensen.
Mission BBQ will cater the event and the Bruin Alumni group will be available after the sessions for meet, greet, and autographs.
Sunday at 1:00pm will be the HRYHA Membership meeting were we will review next season's plans and the future Warrior Ice Center Project.
We look forward to seeing all of you Friday and Sunday

Hampton Roads Youth Hockey Association has partnered with the Warrior for Life Fund Organization for a major project in Virginia Beach. To announce and promote this program HRYHA will be hosting a Youth Hockey Event July 11-14 at Iceland. Below is some information from the Warrior for Life Fund web site:
"The Warrior For Life Fund, in collaboration with the Navy Seal Foundation, aims to raise at least 3.5 million dollars in order to build the Warrior Ice Center: a two-sheet complex and community facility. The center will host programs to support the unique needs of military families, while easing the difficulties associated with deployment, combat, disability, and re-acclimation into society. The Warrior Ice Center will serve the local military community and civilians in and around Virginia Beach, Virginia, which is home to the largest concentration of active duty and retired military personnel in the world."
The Warrior Ice Center will also be the new home of the Hampton Roads Youth Hockey program and all current activities at Iceland.
To kick off this event the Boston Bruin Alumni Association will have up to 10 Boston Bruin players (some retired and some active) attending this kick off.
The Youth Hockey portion will be conducted on Friday July 12th. In addition to the Press Event, the Bruin players will conduct a clinic for our coaches and two player clinics. Times for these events will be posted soon and there will be a required registration process for both coaches and youth players. There will be food and refreshments and an opportunity to meet and mingle with the players.
Sunday July 14th will be the annual HRYHA Membership meeting where next season details will be discussed as well as more information on the Warrior for Life Fund project.
More details will be posted as they are finalized.

From active duty to retirement, the Warrior for Life Fund supports our warriors as they transition through the unique challenges of combat by providing programs and infrastructure designed to support service members and their families long-term.
Through veterans, family support and community programs, the Fund will ensure the bond of service remains unbroken. The Warrior for Life Fund will memorialize the history and heritage of military service and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
The Warrior for Life Fund, in collaboration with the Navy Seal Foundation, has a goal to raise 3.5 million dollars to assist and shape the design and build of the Warrior Ice Center, a two sheet ice complex and community center planned for Virginia Beach, VA, home to the largest concentration of active duty and retired military personnel in the world. In exchange the Warrior for Life Fund and Navy SEAL Foundation Hockey Programs will receive preferred ice times at discount rates, dedicated locker room with sled storage, study room for children, an Honor Wall that will pay tribute to service members from all branches. In addition the main rink will meet Paralympics standards to accommodate the areas rapidly growing sled hockey programs. Most importantly the Warrior Ice Center will host the programs which support the unique needs of families from all branches of the military, easing the difficulties associated with deployment, combat, disability and re-acclimation into society while also serving First Responder’s and the civilian hockey community in Virginia Beach.
Below are the Pond Spring Teams. They are still subject to change based on late registrations but these are good for tonight.

Iceland is preparing to replace the ice making equipment soon. The current water cooling ice system that uses compressors, chiller barrel and a water tower, is being converted to an air cooled system which does not use compressors or a water tower. This is a major upgrade to the ice making system. In preparation for this, major electrical and piping work must be done. As a result Iceland will be operating on a reduced schedule for the next couple of weeks. The Spring Pond hockey program will not be affected by this. Iceland will be posting their activity schedules at www.iceland.goalline.ca.
Players interested in participating in the Fall Season Select and Tournament teams are invited to attend the interest skates May 5th and 6th. The following is the schedule:
Saturday May 5 4:10-5:10 Bn and Mg players
5:25-6:25 Sqt and PW players
Sunday May 6 10:30-11:30 Bn and Mg
11:45-12:45 Sqt and PW
The next sessions will not be held until August so we encourage all interested players to attend and meet the coaches and staff.
