Rock for Hockey Scholarships

Rock for Hockey's goal is to provide material support to US born hockey players in the mid-Atlantic region that demonstrates a need for assistance in order to continue playing the game.  Potential recipients must demonstrate character as well as commitment to the game.

Rock for Hockey is taking to the ice again to help keep local ice hockey players.  At the Hatfield Ice Arena, the weekend of August 18-20, 2018, we will be holding a tournament for levels 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U.    All monies raised at the tournament will be used to advance Rock for Hockey's mission of providing financial support to local ice hockey families that need a little help to keep their son or daughter playing the greatest game on ice. For a registration form to this event, please click here!  For more information on our tournament, please contact Jeff Grable at
