by posted 01/10/2020


The Richmond Generals Junior A Program and the Palmyra Black Knights AAA Youth Program Have Formed an Affiliation


The Richmond Generals Junior A program has set up an affiliation with the Palmyra Black Knights Tier 1 hockey club. Both clubs play in the USPHL league with Palmyra fielding U16/U18 Tier 1 Youth teams and the Generals fielding Junior teams at the Elite and Premier levels. This affiliation will be a huge asset for both programs providing our players with top development opportunities from the Youth level through Juniors. The Richmond Generals Junior program has established a reputation as one of the top developmental Junior Programs in the country that develops players that move to the next level of Junior hockey or College hockey. The Black Knights Tier 1 hockey club has established a great reputation at the Tier 1 AAA level in a short period of time developing and producing quality hockey players and young men. The core values and development model of the staff at Palmyra align directly with the values that the Generals Junior program believes in and uses to help develop and advance their players. “The mission of the Palmyra Black Knights Tier I hockey club is to create a positive productive environment for players to develop and progress as young men and hockey players. The goal is that this development will allow the opportunity for each player to be promoted to highest possible next level and ultimately a college hockey opportunity. The Richmond Generals Junior Hockey Club’s mission is completely aligned and is a fantastic next step for our players deserving of that opportunity. The PBK Hockey Club is extremely excited and pleased to be officially affiliated with the Richmond General Hockey Club under the outstanding leadership of RC Lyke who does an outstanding job of developing and getting players committed to the next Jr level or college hockey!” – Rich Eby Director of Player Advancement – Palmyra Black Knight Hockey Club " The decision to make an affiliation with the Palmyra Black Knight Tier 1 hockey club and Rich Eby was an easy one for me to make. Rich has an excellent reputation in the Pennsylvania area and his values and thoughts on developing players are very similar to mine. This affiliation will provide opportunities for Palmyra players to continue to develop after their Youth careers are finished in a top Junior A program. This will also provide an opportunity for me to place players in the Palmyra Tier 1 hockey program at the U16 and U18 youth levels to develop and come to play for me when they are ready. I am very excited to be working with Rich Eby and his staff at Palmyra and look forward to providing our players with great development opportunities moving forward." R.C. Lyke Head Coach and GM of the Richmond Generals Junior A Elite and Premier Teams in the USPHL. #gopbk #Roll Gens #USPHL
