Coaching Staff 23-24

The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders are proud to announce their Head Coaches for the 2023-24 Season. The RoughRiders Coaching Staff brings a vast amount of hockey knowledge from both their playing and coaching experience.  The RoughRiders have an experienced elite staff that is built to develop each player and provide them a developmental path to become an elite level player. 

The RoughRiders AAA program looks to build on their 2022-23 Tier 1 State Championships at the 14U, 15O, 16U and 18U teams during the 2023-24 season.

As a Tier 1 Program with an affiliation with the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders of the United States Hockey League (USHL) and the Connecticut RoughRiders of the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), we hope to continue to provide a top notch Tier 1 program that continues to develop young hockey players to play at the highest levels of hockey.  The RoughRiders hope to continue to not only develop players on the ice but off the ice as well in the community and academically. 

The RoughRiders play out of one of the finest facilities in Colorado that includes amenities considered to be top notch for hosting showcases or tournaments. The RoughRIders Tryouts will be hosted at the Blue Sport Stable in Superior, CO. A multi-sheet facility equipped with 2 full sheets of ice and a smaller skills pad. The Blue Sport Stable also includes an Indoor Turf field and full workout facilities. The RoughRiders also have the ability to host games or showcases at The Stable in Cedar Rapids, IA a first class USHL facility with two sheets of ice.
