“There has never been this local junior hockey opportunity in Rapid City before. We will be bringing in a few South Dakota players, as well as players from across the US and Canada and look forward to playing at the Roosevelt Park Ice Arena. This level of hockey is extremely fast-paced and competitive and it will be a great addition to the other hockey in the Black Hills.” – Vern Burress
