The Crash (a group of rhinos) has been established as a means of helping the El Paso hockey team achieve their goals while maintaining the focus on the players themselves.
The plan is to support the Rhino players, which in turn, helps improve their experience while they are here in El Paso and away from home. A strong booster club will help with recruiting and retention of players. The Crash will provide regular gatherings for the players, raise money, and have opportunities to meet the Rhinos. Simultaneously, members will show out of town players just how great El Paso is. In the past, the Crash has hosted a cookie swap, a video game night at Gamers Dunegon, a movie night at Alamo Drafthouse and other events for the team and members of the Crash. Members of the Crash also welcomed new Rhinos this season with a team barbecue in September.
Joining the Crash is free! All members must do is help provide post-game meals, road trip snacks, and age-out gifts.
Each year the Crash hopes to have your support while it:
- Increases awareness of the El Paso Rhinos within the community
- Provides regular events for the players
- Ensures that players have food before traveling and after home games
- Looks to the future of El Paso hockey as it supports younger Rhinos
