Rally for Carson!

Join us to support IYHA Jr Fuel 15U AAA player after devastating car accident

Please join us in rallying to help an Indianapolis hockey family through a very difficult time. On Saturday, January 18th, Carson Rainey and his father Gary were traveling on I-70 early in the morning through rain and snow to make it to Carson's 15U AAA game in Pittsburgh. While passing through the Dayton area, control of the vehicle was lost and Carson was ejected onto the pavement at high speed.

When help arrived on the scene Carson was transported to Dayton Children's Hospital where it was determined that he broke 3 vertebrae, lacerated his spleen and a kidney. The lasting extent of his spinal cord damage is yet to be determined. He is currently able to move all of his limbs but has not regained sensation in one of his feet. His internal injuries are expected to return to normal function.

Carson is expected to remain in Dayton until doctors determine that it's safe to move him back to a hospital in the Indy area. The Rainey family is temporarily living out of a hotel near the hospital. Their vehicle was lost in the accident.

The Rainey family is a model of what a youth sports family should be. Gary has served on several youth hockey boards throughout Carson's career and has volunteered countless hours since his son began playing. Carson's mother Christi volunteers at every Indy Fuel ECHL home game to raise money for Carson's current association, the IYHA Jr Fuel.

Please join us in financially supporting the Rainey's through a terribly unfortunate accident that all youth sports families dread hearing about. Your donations will immediately provide for their day to day expenses in Dayton and help secure a replacement vehicle. The next hurdle will be significant medical bills from emergency transportation, surgery and ICU care. Once his internal injuries heal and his spine is safe for activity, he is set to endure months of physically and financially demanding rehabilitation with the hopes of returning to full physical function. 

Carson and his parents thank you in advance for your support. The hockey community is the best in sports when it comes to supporting our teammates and opponents in their time of need. Please consider donating whatever your family can afford to help out one of our own.

Important message from the IYHA

By admin 11/13/2019, 10:00am EST

IYHA Jr Fuel Families and Friends,

As we all embrace the cold weather and get into the routine of regular season hockey, we’d like to thank you for being a part of the new IYHA Jr Fuel for the 2019-2020 season. Jr Fuel travel teams are off to a hot start. Fuel Tank and Pop Weaver House league teams are assigned and competing on Saturdays. The temporary Carmel House program is sharpening their skills in anticipation of the revamped Ice Skadium’s opening next month. 

 

A couple of weeks ago USA Hockey announced a change in the mandatory suspension for language that is offensive, hateful or discriminatory in nature anywhere in the rink, before, during or after a game. Violation of rule 601(e.3) now carries a mandatory Match Penalty, which means the player is suspended until their disciplinary hearing that will take place within 30 days of the incident. 

 

The IYHA Jr Fuel strives to promote an inclusive environment where our players are judged by their sportsmanship, fair play, work ethic and competitive spirit, and not for their ethnicity, skin color, gender, sexuality, religion or socioeconomic status. 

 

While USA Hockey’s policy addresses only incidents that occur during games, the IYHA Jr Fuel will strictly enforce a Zero Tolerance policy toward the above language and actions at all IYHA sanctioned events and on social media. 

 

Parents, we ask that you please have conversations with your players and emphasize the impact their words can have on their teammates, opponents and officials. Remind them that offensive language on the ice, in the rink lobby, in the locker room or on their mobile device will be investigated and appropriately punished according to the rules set out by USA Hockey and Safe Sport. This is a Zero Tolerance Policy. Language deemed inappropriate will be disciplined as outlined in our procedures and USA Hockey Bylaw 10. 

 

Thank you for your cooperation. See you at the rink!
