You must be very young. The Royals were one of the the area's first youth hockey programs starting in the early 70's. The original Grundy Rink (burned down), Wissahickon, and Old York Road were pioneers in this area. OYR and WSC and even George Washington C.C. were very exclusive with family club membership dues that mimicked high-end country club fees. Grundy, Ice Palace on Roosevelt Blvd, Radnor Rink, Lafayette, Valley Forge Sports Complex and others that are long gone built the foundation of youth hockey in this area. Note: The ROYALS were around much longer than any of the clubs you mention.
