Bad News Tav Cats

Well it looks like regardless of our effort and early timeline, the jersey we want are on back order...we don't know when they will come in so it's looking like we will just have to try again next year. Now we will have more time to plan and raise money and sponsorships. If you have any questions, or have a few suggestions or leads, or even if you would like to donate to our cause just let us know: Contact Us.

Jersey Ideas for Yakima Co-ed 4-player Ice Tournament

It's time again for Yakima Ice Rinks annual 4-player Co-ed Tournament and, it time allows, we would like to get new jerseys for the team. At the moment we are thinking of ordering the "All Star Blank Hockey Jersey" from These will not be included in the team purchase but there are matching socks here, the ID # is 730 for the color chart. The cost per jersey will be figured out once we guage the level of interest and amount of jerseys purchased. Take a look at our mock up and let us know what you think! The total cost of the jersey will include screen printing from Shirtworks. There is a chance we will get sponsored by The Tav and Yamaha Jacks, which will reduce the cost per jersey. More to come when we finalize sponsorship.

Hockey Canceled...

Hockey canceled on July 1st, 2012. The roller derby girls put down a new coat of paint for their derby matches so it needs to take some time to dry...

Hockey is also canceled July 4th for obvious reasons. See everybody Sunday the 8th @ 5:30! Have a good, and safe July 4th! (Wouldn't want to miss any hockey eh?)

Moving Back Outside

We are shooting to move the pads back outside on Sunday June 3rd. If weather permits we will move the pads from the ERRC first and then play outside. Everybody bring a roll of duct tape so that we can tape up and patch the pads before we get them moved. Although it hasn't been officially set yet, tentatively we are planning on meeting about an hour and a half before we normally have hockey at about 3:30 or so.

Rodeo City Roller Girls Bout

If any hockey players would like to go to the Roller Girls roller derby bout Saturday, or be a ref for the bout send an email to Mindy at:

Location: High School Auxilary Gym
Time: Saturday, June 25th @ 4:30PM

The bout starts at 4:30 and Michelle suggests that people not be late as it will probably be standing room only. The Roller Girls would appreciate a good hockey guy turnout and I think that we'll be working with them closely in the months to come.
