In the fall of 2013, a close-knit community of hockey enthusiasts united around a shared vision: to establish a space where their children could not only engage in hockey but also cultivate sportsmanship, forge friendships, and absorb valuable life lessons. These families were resolute in their belief that a haven existed, where their ideas and concerns would be acknowledged, and, above all, where their children could experience more than what was currently available.

After numerous hours of concerted effort, a suitable location materialized to transform this vision into reality. Packing up their hockey gear, these families embarked on a journey to put down roots at the newly constructed Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation Dek at Riverview Park in Oakmont, PA. Aware that the endeavor would pose challenges, they were determined to persevere as a united front.

Come January 2014, the Inaugural Season of Riverview Dek Hockey Raptors took flight. While encountering a few obstacles along the way, the families stood resilient, recognizing the growth of their hockey family with each new child joining to learn and play the captivating game. In July 2017, the Light Up The Night ceremony illuminated the fruits of everyone’s hard work and dedication, marked by the installation of outdoor lights.

Fast forward to 2024, a decade of Dek Hockey, and Riverview Dek Hockey has not only expanded but has remained faithful to its initial inspiration: creating a family-friendly environment for children of all skill levels to have fun, learn, and relish the game of hockey alongside their friends.

If you’re on the lookout for a place where your child can not only learn, play, and foster their love for hockey but also become part of the Raptor Family, Riverside Park welcomes you with open arms.
