Master schedule has been revised and both the Standings and Stats sections have been updated with the current season information.

As a good many of you are aware by now, Coach Robert Ricciardelli has left our coaching ranks after 8+ years of commitment/dedication to our program......to our children.  After much consideration, Robert accepted a transfer with his employer and has relocated to Oregon. Below is an email Robert asked me to post on the website:

To my second family.
                               Sorry to say this,  but my time here at the rinks are finally over.  I'm going to miss everyone and specially the kids.  All the parents were great over the years.  Helping out with the teams getting their future hockey hall of famers to the game on time.  Watching them grow from not knowing how to skate in bronze to being the elite players in gold.  It was a fun ride that I will never forget. 
Special thanks to Terry Cox for allowing me to coach for so many years and keeping the league alive. Ed for all the score keeping, lights, nets, and just about everything that goes on at the rinks.  Oh yeah, and the complaining about the equipment.  Coaching for me was not about winning or losing.  It was about the kids.
To all the foot league players.  Thanks for the time we had together.  I enjoyed playing in net and also playing out for most of you. Keep on playing hard and I will see all of you in Vegas next year.
Thank you and good-bye.

We will miss you, Robert.......and wish you nothing but the best in this next chapter of your life.  Take care and know that your SoCal Family will always be here for you.

Hockey Central........it is with great sadness that we announce that Hockey Central will be closing its doors during the first week of October.  Though Dave will still be maintaining the website (www.hockeydogs.com) to handle your hockey equipment needs, the state of the economy slowed business to the point that Dave has been forced to close his storefront.  Hockey Central is looking to liquidate all inventory and supplies/fixtures, and is currently offering a 30% discount on everything in the store.  If you are in need of equipment, I recommend that you swing by to see what they have in stock......and to say thank you for the years of quality service, assistance and friendship Dave has committed to our league.

As stated, www.hockeydogs.com will still be available to everyone (enter "SoCal" as a discount code), and we will still be working with Dave for jersey and raffle item order
in the future.  That said, we will be sad to see the storefront go......but wish Dave the very best of luck as he sets out to start a new chapter in his life.  The very best of luck, Dave!!!

SoCal Street Hockey, Inc., our founder and primary sponsor, will be hosting the StreetLA street hockey tournament as part of Los Angeles Kings inaugural Hockey Fest on the weekend of August 28th-30th.  The tournament itself is a one-day event on August 29th, and will be played on two makeshift rinks constructed on Chick Hearn Court in front of Staples Center and LA Live.  Teams from SoCal Street Hockey, San Diego and San Francisco will be participating. 

The Hockey Fest itself is a 3-day event filled with exciting activities that will be exciting for any hockey hockey fan (i.e. release of EA Sports NHL 2010, video game tournament, guest speakers, reunion of the Triple Crown Line, live music, interactive games, etc).  It will be a fun event for the whole family.

Tickets for the 3-day event are $60, with a 1-day pass on Saturday the 29th costing just $17.  This will be providing great exposure for SoCal Street Hockey, which will only benefit and provide exposure for SCYRHO in the process. 

We welcome you to come down to support SoCal Street Hockey.  If you are interested in purchasing tickets for the event, please contact Chris Crotty at ccrotty@lakings.com or via telephone at 310.535.4461.  Mention that you are there to support SoCal Street Hockey if/when you call.  It's going to be a great weekend of hockey fun, and an "interesting" tournament experience on Saturday.

In other news, SoCal Street Hockey received a nice plug on the Pauly D Radio Program during the 8-17-09 episode.  Member of SoCal Street Hockey was featured as a guest on the program (approximately 30-40 minutes into the program).  This is a sports blog radio program that has been turning more and more of its attention to recreational hockey (street/ball hockey).  News about SoCal Street Hockey also provides great exposure for SCYRHO.
