TORHS/2Hot4Ice - Pittsburgh
The Richmond Tour Rattlers traveled to Hot Shots in Mt. Pleasant, PA this past weekend to participate in the Torhs/2Hot4Ice Regional Qualifier. The event was sold out, and ran almost around the clock with games starting at 5:30am and ending at 2:00am. All teams battled hard against some of the toughest organizations on the east coast. Many divisions had 15+ teams and the field was the strongest we have seen to date. Congrats to the 12U Black for bringing home the Silver Medal in the Squirt Tier 1 Division!

2013 ECHO Shooters Tournament
The 2013 Echo Hockey tournament was held last weekend. It was a nice weekend for some great hockey!
In the 12u division, the 12u Orange team won their first medal of the season bringing some the Gold medal in the Silver division. The 12u Black team probably played the most exciting game of the weekend. The tournament opened with them playing to a 0-0 tie against the Dragons from NC. The 12u Black team finished the tournament strong and earned a Silver medal in the Gold division. In the 16u division, the Rattlers dominated. The 3 Rattler teams went a combined 8-0-1 in the pool play. The 14u Black team finished with a Gold and the 16u Orange team finished with a Silver.

Tour Rattlers Season Off to Fast Start!
The Tour Rattlers season is off to a fast start. March has seen a total of 7 teams participate in Philly, PA and Raleigh, NC.
The weekend of March 15th, the Rattlers sent 4 teams to participate in the State Wars (www.statewarshockey.com) Winter Nationals up in Philly. Over 100 teams participated in the event. As always, this was a well run tournament and the level of competition was extremely high. Once the teams were past the stressful drive up I-95 during rush hour traffic (in DC, Baltimore, and Philly), the fun began. The weekend included more hockey than you could imagine, a few trips to the local casino for some, and a chance for the Rattlers to just have a great time. All of the teams represented our program well and played great hockey. In the end, the Tour Rattlers 14u Black team made it back home with the Silver medal.
This past weekend, 6 teams made the trip from RVA to Raleigh, NC (including our 8u "Atom" team!) for the NARCh Regional (North Americal Roller Hockey Championships). The trip included a number of new families experiencing travel hockey for the first time. The support of the families that made the trip was outstanding as many stayed at the rink to support all of the other Rattler teams as well. Those traveling back Sunday afternoon were rewarded with a trip up I-95 through a late March snowstorm. The Rattler teams had a great showing at the tournament. All teams demonstrated the "never give up" attitude that makes us proud of our teams. The highlight of the tournament was the 12u semi-final game. In that game, our 12u Black team fought hard to come back and tie the game. After 5 minutes of overtime, the game remained in a tie. After a 3 on 3 shootout, the game still remained in a tie. 8 sudden death shots later, the Rattlers won the game and the 12u Black team went on to win Gold against the home team Dragons.
Just before the semi-final game, the Rattlers 14u Black team held on to a 5-4 victory for the Gold medal in that age division. Congratulations to all of the teams that participated! Click on the NARCh image below for all the scores.
