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.

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.
