      Hello From The BAHL Office! 


      Your Billings Bulls open their 2010-2011 season this Friday against Bozeman.  They play at home again Saturday when they face Helena.  Both games begin at 7:30 pm.  Ticket sales will begin at 6:30 pm. 


      Congratulations to all the skaters who will represent the BAHL this season on our travel teams!  The player names for each team are listed on the youth hockey page of our website.  You can see the complete list by clicking on that age division’s link at the bottom of the page. 


      Calendars – I hope everyone that committed to the calendar fundraiser is having great success with sales!  I do have a few extra calendars if you want more.  I originally asked for the calendar sales money to be returned to the league office by today, but we have more time.  Please return the sales money in an envelope with your players name on it to my office by October 4th


      Thank you!


      A giant thank you goes out to the Billings Bulls coach, players and Doug Strong for organizing a clean-up of our parking lot and around the building.  All the trash piles have been removed and it looks so much better!


      Free Ice?


      If you have a mite or a squirt age hockey player, you are invited to get 3 ½ hours of FREE hockey practice October 23rd 1:00-2:30 pm and again at 5:00-6:30 pm.  As part of the USA Hockey ADM Presentation that the BAHL is hosting October 22 and 23, your mite and squirt is invited to skate for free and receive a free USA Hockey jersey!  So we have enough jerseys for everyone, you must reserve your spot on the ice with me by SEPTEMBER 30th


      Don’t know what ADM is?  Check out this link for lots more information:  http://admkids.com/ then reserve a spot as a parent to attend the entire presentation which begins with a presentation by Joe Doyle of USA Hockey at the Boothill Inn @ 7:00 pm.


      Extra Practices:


      Does your travel team want some extra practices in October before the traveling begins?  The weekend ice slots are filling up fast – so let me know soon if you would like to reserve time.  The cost per hour of ice this season is $175.00. 




      We are in desperate need of equipment donations, especially peewee and bantam size equipment.  This is a good thing as it means we have lots of new skaters on the ice!  Our free Learn to Play program is designed with the younger skater in mind, but we will not turn away any age youth skater that wants to learn!  The problem is those older skaters do not fit into the USA Hockey issued rental equipment – this is where you can really help us out by cleaning out the garage, closet, shed of all that old equipment.  Please make sure it is still in good, usable condition (gloves still need to have palms in them).  You can bring your donations to the rink office or to a rink employee anytime the arena is open.  THANK YOU!


      Clothing Options:


      It’s back!  The BAHL has joined forces with Universal Sports to bring BAHL/Junior Bulls imprinted apparel back to our members.  To order and see the available options, go to:  www.universalathletic.com and click on the Team Sales, then choose “Order Team Packs”.  The code for BAHL merchandise is:  8TV9K.  You can choose from polo shirts, sweatshirts, t-shirts, shorts and a jacket.  You have the option of either the BAHL logo or the Bulls logo to be imprinted on each piece.  There are specific “order by” dates and delivery dates.  All merchandise must be picked up at Universal Athletic.


      Until next time!

        Hello From The BAHL Office! 


        Ice looks great, the arena looks great and the number of skaters on the ice has been good this week.  One more week of our September schedule which is mainly drop-in sessions and then we move to our October practice schedule.  Don’t forget that you can view the arena schedule at any time through our website at www.centennialicearena.net, just choose the “view schedule” tab on the left side of the page. 


        Do you have a skater who is at least 16 years of age?  Does this skater need or want a job during the hockey season?  The arena is hiring for skate guards to help during public skate this season.  We will work around travel team schedules.  Send the office an email if you or your skater is interested.


        Peewee Tryouts:


        This weekend is the Peewee Travel Team tryout sessions:  Saturday @ 7:00 pm, Sunday @ 10:00 am and Sunday @ 5:00 pm.  Peewee parent meeting will be held during the Sunday 5:00 pm session.  Remember that your skater needs to attend two of the three sessions.


        Public Skate:


        Our regular season public skate sessions start this weekend!  Saturday and Sunday afternoon 1:00-2:45 pm both days.  Next week our Tuesday and Thursday noon sessions start as well (12:00-1:45 pm both days).




        Ostby Orthodontics will offer a free mouthguard fitting which includes a free mouthguard on Sunday, October 7th 3:00-5:00 pm.  This fitting will take place at their heights office which is across Wicks Lane by Wal-Mart.  All BAHL and Learn to Play skaters are welcome to take advantage of this offer!

        Rental Equipment:


        Did you miss our equipment date yesterday for the first session of Learn to Play?  Cristina will be available on Saturday during the Learn to Play session at 12:00 to fit your skater.  Please send me an email if you are in need of equipment to get started for this first session. 


        Mite and Squirt players who need equipment for this season – we will schedule an equipment date for later in October to get you covered.


        Registration Discount:


        Help grow the BAHL Girls Program by bringing another girl to the BAHL.  Earn a $50 reduction in your player fees for EVERY girl that registers (and pays) with the BAHL this season.  There is no limit to the number of female players you get credit for!
