The RIAL Winter 2022/23 season isn’t even over yet and we have the schedule for the upcoming season. The RIAL Spring 2023 season starts immediately after the end of the RIAL Winter 2022/23 Season. There is a grand total of one day for the offseason. The RIAL Spring 2023 season starts this Monday. Reno Pond Hockey will play their first game on Wednesday, March 22nd at 10:30pm. Reno Pond Hockey will open up the season with a game against Q & D Construction.
For the RIAL Spring 2023 season, D-League is expanding to eight teams. Q & D Construction join the D-League after going 1-9-0 in the C-League during the RIAL Fall 2022 season. The Fire Hosers (D) join the D-League after the Reno Fire Hosers split. The Reno Fire Hosers went 1-8-1 in the C-League during the RIAL Fall 2022 season. For the RIAL Spring 2023 season the Reno Fire Hosers split into the Reno Fire Hosers (B) who play in the B-League and Fire Hosers (D) who play in the D-League. Reno Pond Hockey will have a ten-game regular season for the third season in a row.
Reno Pond Hockey has two games in March, five games in April, and three games in May. The biggest change for this season is the start times and days.
