Family Weekend

For two weekends throughout the 2017-18 season, the Rhino organization invites families to visit Rhino Country! Through a few small events, the Rhinos hope families will gain a sense of what it's like to be a Rhino. 

We will update this page once the Family Weekend schedule has been determined. 

Below is a schedule of events of our last family weekend.

For complimentary tickets to each game, have your player request them from the Assistant Coach by the Thursday before the series.  Rhino gear can be purchased from the Merchandise Stand, which is open during every home game. Before your purchase, inquire about your player's discount.  

Throughout the weekend, we also encourage families to tour the Sun City! Some of El Paso's notable attractions are the Wyler Aerial Tramway, the Franklin Mountains State Park, the Mission Trail, and our partners, the El Paso Zoo. You can also visit the campus of the University of Texas at El Paso and consider the Miner Hockey Club as a great follow up to players' careers in Rhino Country. Try Texas style cooking at State Line or Cattleman's Steakhouse and don't forget to pick up souvenirs from from one of the four malls in the Greater El Paso Area.
