Ready to go for a hat trick? This month we’re headed to RiderTownUSA to shoot the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders!!
The RoughRiders currently have the best record in the USHL. The USHL is a league for players 20 years and younger, allowing them to develop their skills with the purpose of advancing their careers to the college and professional levels. Justin Abdelkader, of the Detroit Red Wings, played for the RoughRiders during his senior year of high school before going on to play in college and the NHL.
Rarely do I set up a shoot for a weekday, and never have I scheduled a shoot during a work day, as a good percentage of our club members are working. However, we’ve been working on getting into shoot the Roughriders for quite a long time and this is the ONLY time/day that works. I’m sure you will understand.
Their practice is from 2-4pm. However, we are only allowed to shoot for 45 minutes. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes early – I’ll give you that for set up. You can start shooting at 2:30 and please pack up and head out at 3:15.
They will allow us to shoot from just about anywhere in the arena EXCEPT from the player benches, so they can avoid as much distraction as possible for the players.
NOTE: I've asked about flashes, waiting to hear back. Will email those RSVP'd when I have an answer.
As with most of our club shoots, this shoot is free to attend for all current LAPC members. Please RSVP by Monday Feb 22nd to [email protected] so I can let our RoughRiders contact know.
