WHO ARE THE RIVERKINGS?

The Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings, a Junior Hockey Team within the United States Premier Hockey League, began operations on May 1st, 2014.  The Riverkings call the South Wood County Recreation Center in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin, home ice.

As our inaugural season began, what better place than the Wisconsin Rapids area and its surrounding communities to make us one of the premier Junior Hockey organizations in the United States.

Led by Head Coach Marty Quarters, a man with drive, determination, and devotion, the Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings look forward to many successful seasons while focusing on the development and advancement of our players to the next level.  As the previous Head Coach of the 2013-2014 Central Wisconsin Saints (CWS), Coach Quarters surpassed all records in CWS team history.  Part of that phenomenal, record-breaking season, eight of Coach Quarters' players committed to college play after skating under his tutelage..
