Who are the Temecula Warriors?
The Temecula Warriors are teams comprised of predominately the top TVIHA players from our recreation and/or school leagues. The teams compete in various inline hockey tournaments mostly in Southern California. The majority of tournaments take place on the weekends. Each tournament game is two (2) periods long and each team is guaranteed a minimum 3 games each tournament. The typical season begins with tryouts in August and runs through June/July. Along with the team fee ($300 for new players includes jerseys. $135 for those returning), players are required to pay tournament fees as well. The typical tournament fee is $550 split amongst all of the players on the team (larger tournaments cost more but guarantee more games). On average each team plays once a month beginning in October. In 2017/2018 the Temecula Warriors have three (3) teams competiting. The 10U team is coached by Jim Newberry & Tom Bilek. The 12U team is coached by Tom Bilek & David Bowman. The 14U team is coached by Sean Smith & Tom Bilek. The team fee covers maintenance of the rinks, equipment, lights, home/away team jerseys and matching pants. Teams typically practice once or twice a week depending on rink availability and other TVIHA programs.
