The Lake Region Hockey Association (LRHA) was the original youth hockey association for Irondale and Mounds View youth hockey players. Somewhere around 1993, Irondale and Mounds View created their own youth hockey programs to align with the high school boundaries. Lake Region stayed in existence in order to run the pull-tab gambling operations and support Irondale Youth Hockey, Mounds View Youth Hockey and other youth sports programs.
The board is made up of 12 members. 6 members represent Irondale and 6 members represent Mounds View. The board meets monthly and the meetings are public and posted on the Irondale Youth Hockey website.
Since 1993, Lake Region Hockey has provided support totaling over $3 million. Their funding is generating by the pulltab operations at the following sites (last updated Nov 2013):
Champps of New Brighton
Gearhead Saloon and Grill of White Bear Lake
Meister Bar and Grill of Shoreview
Welsch's Big Ten Tavern of Arden Hills
