    Hockey Spectators

    This season for practice each skater is allowed up to one spectator in the arena.  For games each skater for the home and visiting teams is allowed up to two spectators in the arena.  This is for each of our rinks to maintain the proper capacity limits set by the governor.  

    River Lakes Tournaments

    River Lakes will not be hosting any tournaments for the 2020-2021 season.  We hope to be back to hosting tournaments next season.

    Below is the updated concession stand manual for the season for working concessions at the rink in Paynesville. 

    There is a copy of this in the concession stand as well.
