Peoria Youth Hockey Association has had a good relationship with the Rivermen ever since Bruce Saurs bought the team. Our Travel teams skate as the Jr. Rivermen and I’m sure you have seen our younger players here on the Civic Center ice.
Peoria Youth Hockey Association has nearly 500 members ranging in age from 4 to 18 years old. We know there are more kids out there who would like to play. Unfortunately, unlike little league baseball or JFL football where you can simply find an open field and go play, hockey requires ice….and ice costs money. Therefore, playing hockey carries a greater cost for the players than other youth sports which keeps some from participating.
Due to the thoughtfulness of the Saurs family we have received memorial contributions in honor of Bruce that will allow us to fund a scholarship program. Through what will be now known as the Bruce Saurs Memorial Scholarship Fund we will be able to help more kids get involved in youth hockey and Bruce’s legacy of support for hockey in Central Illinois will now continue onto the next generation of players, for many years to come. For that, we are extremely grateful!
