Raiders Spring Selects Program Information

The Reston Raider Hockey Club is pleased to announce that we will be fielding Spring Select Teams once again this spring.  This is a separate program from our Spring House League and will allow for players to continue developing their skills in a competitive environment.  The Spring Selects Program is tailored towards the player that is currently playing or interested in preparing for our Travel Hockey tryouts to be held in early June.

Spring Selects Program intends to field 16 teams this spring.  They will be fielded at the following birth year levels: 

8U 2010
8U 2011-2012
10U 2008
10U 2009
10U Mixed 2008-2009
12U 2006
12U 2007
12U Mixed 2006-2007
14U 2004
14U 2005
14U Mixed 2004-2005
16U Blue (AA)
16U Silver (AA or A)
18U Blue (2000 & 2001 birth years)
Girls 19U or 16U
Girls 16U or 14U (2nd team will depend on registration)

Teams at the 8U level will consist of no more 18 players.  The 10U teams will consist of no more than 15 skaters per team and 1 or 2 goalies.  The coach and tryout evaluators could chose to take fewer than 15 players, if the group feels the team could fare better at a certain tournament level.  The 12U, 14U and 16U teams will also consist of at least 15 skaters and 1 or 2 goalies.

Each team will be eligible to attend 1 or 2 tournaments.  The thought is that the birth year teams will participate in AA for the major birth year, at least A for the minor birth year and depending on the ability of each team and the mixed teams would participate in A or B level tournaments.

The program will consist of 11 half-ice weekly practices, held on Mondays or Tuesdays (Some practices may be held on the weekends or other days, depending upon ice availability)

Registration for tryouts is now open will open and will remain open through 11:59 PM Friday, March 2nd.  There will be no walk-in registrations allowed.
Coaches for the program are currently under consideration and should be announced soon.

Tryouts will be held to select the teams at each level.  It is recommended that all players attend both tryouts, but all players must attend at least one session to be selected for the team.  The Tryout schedule will be announced soon, but will be held the week of March 5th.

The tryout fee is $50.  In order to tryout, you must register for tryouts on the Reston Raiders website.  The cost of the program will be $395.00. 

For more information on the program, please contact Chick Thompson at or Kevin Burch at .

Raiders Spring House League & Raiders HS League

2018 Raiders Spring House League


Spring League is intended as a fun time for where teams play games without standings. It runs from March 10th until June 15th with 4-5 practices and 9-10 games (Mite House players will have a slightly different schedule, see below). Registration for Reston members (currently playing in a Reston Raiders program) is now open and on February 15th it will be open to new Reston Raiders members. All games are non-checking.
