The Latest Rushmore Thunder News


In response to current infection rates and a spike in numbers the RHA Board of Directors has passed and adopted the following covid policies. We understand that this is cumbersome and not ideal. The board feels that these policies give us the best chance at continued camps, skating, and practices. Thank you for working with us. These policies are dynamic and will certainly change as our season progresses. We are confident that the RHA family will come together and work together to keep our kids on the ice and healthy! 

No player, coach, parent or sibling should enter any RHA Facility if exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough with difficulty breathing, unexplained sore throat, unexplained diarrhea/vomiting/abdominal pain, severe headache, loss of taste or smell). When in doubt - stay home.

Face coverings required at RHA facilities for parents, players. Skaters not required to wear face coverings on ice during practices or games.

Face coverings will be worn in locker rooms. Skaters/coaches must keep locker room time to no more than 15 minutes at a time. Skaters/coaches should keep 6 feet apart from others in locker room. Encourage mite and squirt aged skaters to partially dress at home.

Bring your own labeled water bottle.

Implementation of an increased sanitation of high touch surfaces. Hand sanitizer available in the warming area - please use upon arrival and exit of the Thunderdome.

It is encouraged for there to be only one parent per skater in RHA facilities for practice. Parents are highly encouraged to utilize the stands and socially distance.

No gear is to be left at the Thunderdome

No showering at the Thunderdome.
