A waiver form will also be released that will be required to be completed and submitted prior to your child entering the rink.
Once again, we appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing all on the rink!!

Thank you,

Registration is open! 

To our ball hockey families

To our ball hockey families,
I first and foremost hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. I’m sure everyone has questions on when we can resume sports activities especially our beloved ball hockey. We are aware of the governor’s request to begin to slowly open up regions and are closely monitoring this along with our own individual municipalities. There’s still so much unknown around the rules around the reopening and what restrictions will still be in place to not only hold practices, but to begin close social activity. Even with the governor’s shift to reopen parts of our area, its still requires us to follow the rules of each municipality and continue 6 feet of social distancing which is required per CDC guidelines. This of course makes ball hockey very difficult to manage like most sports.
With this said, we will be holding a zoom conference call (scheduled shortly) with each member rep, from each DEK. I would ask for you to speak to your own individual rep in regards to questions or concerns you have, and we’ll do our best to answer all of these and send one recap to all members’ organizations. I know this is a hard time for everyone and we realize mostly how much it pains us not to be on the DEK with your kids each day, but we must do what’s best to keep everyone safe. Our #1 priority is to follow the guidelines we’re given so we can in fact get back to our normal lives and back to DEK hockey. Again, we will be back in contact once we hold our meeting and will update everyone on our discussions.
Sincerely,
Ryan Rose

Spring 20′ RDH LET’S GO!!

As a youth sports organization that takes your kids health and our own and our communities health very seriously, we’ll continue to monitor the situation and follow any guidelines set forth by the City Of Pittsburgh and our Governor.

There has been no communication to youth athletics in regards to cancelling events or practices. Our events are not large gatherings and are under 250 people in size. However, as parents, you have the right to make that choice. You have the right to keep your child at home. With that’s said, below are proper precautions you and your kids can take when at the Dek or practice.

1.) Do not share drinks or water bottles.

2.). Kids should not share equipment or clothing.

3.) If your child has any symptoms of being sick, please keep your child at home. There is nothing more Important to us than your child’s well being.

We will continuously update you on any changes that we need to make prior to our in-house games start and properly adjust schedules in accordance to the direction given to us by our government or CDC. Our Spring 20 season is still moving forward with rosters and schedules are being released soon. I wish everyone a good day and stay safe and healthy! If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
