About the RHL/League Operations
We would like to welcome everyone to the 2019–2020 season of the Rainier Hockey League (RHL). The league will be separated into 3 levels: A League, B League, C League and the Rainier Women’s Hockey League (RWHL). As the league grows in teams, the league will add more divisions to accommodate future growth.
The RHL continues to be operated under the Puget Sound Amateur Icesports Association (P.S.A.I.A.), which, along with the youth group Tacoma Jr Hockey Association, plays at Tacoma Twin Rinks, located at 2645 S. 80th S., Tacoma, WA 98409. The intent of this merger is to have better oversight in the procedure of USA Hockey, to have better oversight financially, and to provide a more stable USA Hockey presence. With this, please take note that PSAIA employees will not have or be able to provide you with the appropriate answers to questions or be able to help you with concerns regarding the RHL. Also in the past, our on ice and off ice officials have been approached with issues regarding RHL procedures.
The RHL has established a method for you to communicate with the Directors of the league. The first step is to contact your team manager and your team manager will either solve your issue or relay information to the Adult Hockey Director. Then, the Adult Hockey Director will utilize the Disciplinary and Actions Board. The disciplinary and actions board is comprised of the team manager or designee from each team. The rulings of the Disciplinary and Actions board are appealable to the Appeals Board. The appeals Board will be chaired by the PSAIA executive Director and will follow Bylaw 10 in the USA Hockey 2017–2018 Annual Guide.
In the effort to keep communication lines open and information that allows us to all be on the same page, we ask that you follow these guidelines. We are all aware that the rumor mill and getting information from people who do not understand the rules and procedures can be confusing, waste time, and create frustration. Our goal is to foster a healthy environment for adults to enjoy the game of hockey. Your responsibility is to understand who does and doesn’t have the authority to solve your issues. If you have any questions, please contact our Commissioner, Patrick Bradley.
