Limited Time Promo: Bring a Friend!

We are currently running a registration promotion which will run starting now until September 25th (Evaluations Day).

If you are able to bring in a completely, brand new registrant to RCFHA, we will offer you a $25 gift card (Tim Hortons, Sport Chek, or Amazon). In addition, the player that gets recruited will be entered into a draw for free registration for next season.

Note that to have this apply, the recruiter must name the player that referred them (not the parent!).

A few conditions apply:

  • This promotion does not apply to the Adult division
  • The person being recruited cannot have registered in the past (must be brand new)
  • The $25 gift card will be issued at the end of the season, provided that the player who was recruited remains an active member of a team throughout the entire season

Please spread the word, and earn some rewards!

If you have further questions, contact president@rcfha.org

2021/22 Season Kick Off!

Welcome to the 2021-2022 RCFHA season. We hope to provide a safe, fun season to all the kids this season.

Our first event will be Evaluations Day, which will take place on Saturday, September 25th at Burnett Secondary School (5011 Granville Ave, Richmond). Please note this is mandatory to attend. We will be splitting divisions into two groups to adhere to limits of people in the building. Please see the following schedule for each division. Note: We will provide you with which group you are in by Wednesday, but keep these times in mind for now. Please plan for your child to stay for a maximum of 45 mins.

  • Mites: 9 am & 9:45 am
  • PeeWee: 10:45 am & 11:30 am
  • Jr Squirt: 12:30 pm & 1:15 pm
  • Bantam: 2:15 pm & 3:00 pm
  • Sr Squirt: 4 pm & 4:45 pm

Note that Evaluations are not “try-outs”. They are an opportunity to evaluate players so we are able to create fair, evenly matched teams for all players to enjoy throughout the season.

Please note the following restrictions:

  • No spectators will be allowed inside Burnett to adhere to limits (parents will have to wait outside)
  • Everyone must wear a mask to get inside/move around in Burnett (you may only take off your mask if you are playing hockey)

All Evaluators, coaches, and any volunteers present during Evaluations are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and will all be wearing masks.

Finally, Phantom Sports (a great supplier of shin pads/knee pads) will be at Burnett starting around 9:30 am for the day to take orders for shin pads/knee pads if your kids need some. Feel free to stop by and order some if you need it.

In addition, to be able to participate this season in the RCFHA 2021-2022 season, all players and all team personnel must sign a COVID-19 waiver.

Please click the link to a Google Forms document to fill out the waiver. This must be done prior to September 25th.

And if you know friends who want to play, it’s still not too late to register!

Are YOU Ready To Play?

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a good, safe holidays thus far. It has been an unconventional year thus far and that includes our RCFHA season this year. Thank you for your patience and your understanding through these tough times.

RCFHA is continuing their hard work behind the scenes in planning for a season, in whatever capacity that is feasible, yet remains safe for all participants involved, all while following the rules outlined by the Provincial Health Officer and the orders outlined by both viaSport and the BC Government.

We have received some positive news from the School District that dependent on our Safety Plans and the conditions of sport in BC, that we may be able to obtain the schools for a modified season. Our plans are to start practices in February and games in March with our modified, physical distancing model outlined on our website. We would end off with our Tournament in the 2nd week of June. This timeline would allow us to operate during the tail end of the flu season, and we’re hoping at this point, conditions will somewhat improve after the winter time. We understand that there may be some hesitance to sign up for sports, but we are hoping that are safety measures that we will implement, in addition to our later start, will help alleviate some of these concerns. Some safety features we plan to implement as a part of a season would include the use of face shields on the floor during play, the use of face masks off the floor, a modified playing surface to limit interactions with others, physical distancing at the team benches, no spectators being present at any of the events, and a Safety Manager assigned to each team to ensure proper adherence to the guidelines and rules. For more information and detailed rules and guidelines we plan to follow, please visit our website (rcfha.org) or view the following safety plan attached.

Based on this timeline and our safety plans, we want to gauge the interest among potential registrants as to whether they would sign up to play for a season this year, based on the information provided. The link below is a link to a very short survey to help us gauge this interest. Please consider filling this out so we can have a good idea of the level of interest.

Thank you for your time and have a Happy Holidays!

Updated COVID Safety Plan

Hello all! Hope you all is able to enjoy a more quiet Christmas season, celebrating within your own family. Despite the changing policies, our executives has been working hard and have put together and got approval of a new and updated COVID safety plan that will allow us to move forward with Cosom Hockey.

The latest updated information is available here: RCFHA Season Safety Plan

Stay safe, stay fit!

The Wait Continues…

While the world holds its breath on the final result of the US election, we too have been waiting for the final approval and facilities for Cosom Hockey to get started! Just a short update to all that our exec has been working tirelessly to put a safe and fun season together, we are still subject to circumstances beyond our control. And until “all the votes have been counted”, we will remain optimistic on our path forward!

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay fit!

The Game Plan!

Yes, we got a plan to move forward with the 2020/2021 season! ViaSport and the BC Government have announced we are in Phase 3 of Return to Sport, which allows us to have league play and competitions within sport cohorts with modified games and matches. We have completed our Safety Plan for the season and submitted to the City of Richmond for approval.

Basically we have set out multiple options, starting the season with practices and exhibition games. Our plan is to start the regular season next year and wrap up a bit later than usual toward May.

The game play would also be modified. Here’s some proposed floor plans for the gym:

You can see the full detail of the proposal here:

Also additional information on our COVID-19 response page

Note: This plan is subject to change and can be modified at any time in order to reflect the changing pandemic conditions. This is not a set plan but rather a proposal, and we will be continuing to work with the city in order to ensure league safety is maintained.
