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.
