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 players that is currently playing or interested in preparing for our Travel Hockey tryouts to be held in May.
Spring Selects Program intends to field 16 teams this spring. They will be fielded at the following birth year levels with the following Head Coaches:
10U 2009 Blue
10U 2010 Blue
10U 2009 Silver
10U 2010 Silver
12U 2007 Blue
12U 2008 Blue
12U 2007 Silver
12U 2008 Silver

14U 2006 Blue
14U 2005 Silver
14U 2006 Silver
16U Blue (AA #1)
16U Silver (AA or A)
Teams at the 8U level will consist of no more 18 players. The teams at 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U teams will also consist of at least 15 skaters and 1 or 2 goalies. At 10U, 12U, & 14U we intend to field two teams at each birth year (ex. 10U 2009 Blue & Silver and 10U 2010 Blue & Silver).
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, and the cost of the program will be $395, tournament costs will be determined by each team, based on the number of tournaments they plan to attend. The practice schedule will be as follows:

The schedule will not be completed until registration is finished because the number of players in each age group will determine the number of teams which, in turn, will determine the schedule. A permanent schedule will be published soon after registration is closed. There will only be 4-5 practices during the entire season so practices will not be held every week.

The Reston Raiders 10U 2008 Squirt Blue team played in the Three Rivers Cup tournament in Pittsburgh, PA (November 30th - December 2nd). In the tournament opener, the Raiders were matched up with the Forest Hill Force (Toronto, Ontario) where they quickly jumped on top and established a commanding 4 to 0 lead after one period. With solid play in all zones, they eventually ran away to a convincing 8 to 0 win. Playing against the Monroe City Eagles (Rochester/Scottsville, NY) in their second game, the Raiders again got off to a fast start with two goals in the first period and added four in the second to earn a solid 6 to 2 win. In the third game and final of the first round, the Raiders faced the Steel City Renegades (Pittsburgh, PA) who were also unbeaten to this point. Steel City opened the scoring with a goal early in the first period - the Raiders had scored first in their first two games of the tournament. The Raiders responded and evened the score midway through the period. Reston then added two more goals in the second to create a little separation. Steel City stayed close and added a goal in the third while the Raiders iced it with an empty netter late to settle it at 4 to 2. In a game that had a lot of stops, starts, and whistles, Reston grinded out the win to earn the number one seed in Sunday’schampionshipgame. Playing Steel City again for thechampionship, the Raiders won in dominant fashion with a no doubt about it 5 to 0 victory. For the tournament, all forwards had at least a point demonstrating a balanced attack while the defense/goaltending was stingy allowing just four goals in four games. Reston Raiders 10U 2008 Squirt Blue shook it up in the Burgh!
