RDV Sportsplex Ice Den House League players to sport special Solar Bears jerseys

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears announced today that they have entered into a partnership with the RDV Sportsplex Ice Den. The Ice Den is the Home and Official Training Center of the Orlando Solar Bears.

Starting this Fall, RDV House League Hockey Teams playing at the Ice Den will wear brand new jerseys with the new ‘Orlando Solar Bears House League’ crest. Eight different jerseys have been created and will be worn by 20 different teams and over 200 players in the Fall, Winter, and Spring leagues. As part of the agreement House League players will have the opportunity to participate in clinics hosted by Solar Bears coaches and players. In addition, House League teams and RDV Sportsplex Figure Skaters will play and perform during intermissions at Solar Bears home games.

Both the Solar Bears and the RDV Sportsplex will gain increased visibility, as RDV will have a presence at the Amway Center during select games, while the Solar Bears will display signage throughout the Ice Den.

Jason Siegel, Team President and Managing Partner, said, “We are committed to growing hockey in Central Florida. Partnerships with the RDV Sportsplex Ice Den, the Space Coast IcePlex in Rockledge, and Daytona Ice Arena help us take positive steps in that direction.”

“We hope all of the kids will wear their Solar Bears House League jersey with pride,” stated Solar Bears Head Coach Drake Berehowsky. “Our coaching staff and players are certainly looking forward to skating with the kids and running a practice or two during the season.”

“We are excited to partner with the Orlando Solar Bears,” said RDV Sportsplex Ice Den Director Debby Kwasman. “The jerseys look amazing and we can’t wait to see our players wearing them on the ice.”

The RDV Sportsplex Ice Den offers House League Hockey for kids ages four to 17. Players can compete in Mini-Mites, Mites, Squirts, Pee Wees, Bantams and Midgets levels. Leagues begin in September, and typically run in 10-week sessions for the Fall, Winter, and Spring. To join a team, call 407-916-2556, visit rdvsportsplex.com, or sign up at the Ice Den. RDV also offers Learn to Skate and Learn to Play classes for kids and adults. Registration is currently open, and the next 10-week session will begin on September 30th. To enroll, call 407-916-2556.

The Orlando Solar Bears, the ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Minnesota Wild and AHL's Houston Aeros, are coming Out of Hibernation and will play 36 regular season home games at the 2012 Street and Smith's Sports Business Journal Sports Facility of the Year, the Amway Center, beginning October 20, 2012.  Fans will have the opportunity to purchase individual tickets for all 36 regular season home games beginning at 8:00 am on Wednesday, September 19th, with tickets starting as low as $15.
