COMMUNITY EVENTS/ HOCKEY DEMOS We recently attended two awesome events in the City of Corona to promote the sport of hockey within the community. Staff from Corona Inline attended Book-a-Palooza at the Corona Public Library on June 4th with a Rinks - Corona Inline booth and Activity Time at the El Cerrito Public Library on June 12th to conduct a hockey demonstration to over 40 families. This recent community outreach is the start of an attempt to help promote and grow the sport of hockey through out Southern California. Going forward we will be looking to attend more of these events, either with a regular booth set up, or with more participatory hockey demonstration. If you are interested in having The Rinks - Corona Inline at one of your events, please contact Steven Boddy at 2

June’s Jr Duck of the Month is a little different this year. Since it is the last month that we do Jr Duck of the Month, instead of give it to one individual from one of our teams, we are giving the award to all the second year midgets from the program that will be aging out after the season is over. This means that all of our midget players with a 1994 birth year are this month’s Jr Ducks of the Month! The following individuals age out of the Jr Ducks

If you have any questions please contact James Irwin at the The Rinks - Huntington Beach at To register a team, please visit under the “Register Now” section. The Adult Nationals will be held in conjuction with the Youth AAU Junior Olympics and the FIRS Junior Men’s and Women’s World Championships.
