The Rivermen Varsity Ice Hockey Team
 
The Rivermen Ice Hockey team is a high school hockey team located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains and the Hudson River region. The Rivermen High School Hockey team was formed in the spring of 2013 as a merger of two high schools hockey teams, the Glens Falls High School Team and the South Glens Falls/Hudson Falls High School Team.  
The Rivermen logo symbolizes living on the Hudson River and the water fall that connects each of the three communities.  The students from these communities developed their hockey skills together through the Adirondack Youth Hockey Association (AYHA).
The Rivermen Ice Hockey team brings these groups of players together again, to form a high school Ice Hockey Team. The Rivermen Ice hockey team will practice and play all home games at their home ice rink, the Glens Falls Recreation Center, also the home of AYHA.
