We have restructured our payment options for the upcoming seasons which will now allow players to pay for each session individually. We encourage all players to participate in all sessions and will be offering a discount for those who make payments for all 3 sessions in advance.


We understand that players have other commitments at various times throughout the season and will try to be as flexible as possible. We will, however, need to know your commitment and availability for the Summer Program so we are able to monitor our numbers of each roster.


2018 Winter and Spring Program:

Players that are selected to participate in the Rhino Fall Program will also participate in some indoor winter training sessions and then continue through the spring and into our summer season.

The Summer Program consists of 8-10 practices and 4 tournaments per team. More details regarding the Winter and Summer Programs will be provided as the seasons approach.
