      Happy New Year From The BAHL Office! 


      Welcome back everyone!  We had a great holiday week full of skating at the rink!  Our public skate sessions were very well attended each day.  Also during the week a few of our youth teams played games, along with the adult league, the Bulls and some figure skating.


      Starting off our weekend will be the Bulls taking on the Yellowstone Quake this Friday evening @ 7:30 pm.  Saturday morning our Peewee B team plays @ 8:30 am and again at 2:45 pm.  The Varsity team plays at 7:00 pm Saturday evening and again on Sunday morning @ 10:15 am.  Our Squirt B also plays Sunday morning at 8:30 am.


      Board Meeting:


      The board meeting scheduled for this Monday, January 10th has been moved to Monday, January 17th @ 6:00 pm.  The meeting will still be held in the board room at the arena.


      Volunteer hours:


      I probably sound like a broken record at times when it comes to our league service, but your service in our league and arena is very important.  Your time and effort in the league and arena is invaluable, thank you!  Your Age Group director or Team Manager along with myself have been helping track your hours for the season.  Please check with your manager or director to confirm your hours or you may contact me as well.


      Open Ice:


      We do have some open ice times that are available, including this Saturday 4:30-6:30 pm.  Send me an email right away if you would like this ice or want to know what other times are available.



      Unfortunately during the holiday break, our parking lot was the target of thieves who broke into a few unattended cars.  Please be mindful of what you leave in your vehicle while at the arena.


      Play It Again Sports:


      Congratulations to BAHL members Kirk and Teresa Link!  Just before Christmas, Kirk and Teresa finalized the purchase of the local Play It Again Sports.  This is wonderful news for hockey (and other sports too)!  They have already begun stocking the store with hockey equipment and sticks.  Please stop by to say hello and check out the store! 


      Until next week!

        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!
