      Hello From The BAHL Office! 

       

      Coming up this weekend at Centennial we start off with the Bulls vs. Helena, game time is 7:30 pm Friday night!  Saturday we continue the hockey action with the Squirt A1 team playing at 7:45 am followed by the Peewee A team at 9:30 am and again @ 2:45, Squirt A1 @ 4:30 pm and finishing the evening with our U16 team @ 7:00 pm.  On Sunday the U16 team plays again at 10:15 am.

       

      NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY!  Need something for you or the kids to do?  Come skate!  We have added a public skate on Monday 12:00 – 2:00 pm. 

       

      Coming up soon will be our magazine fundraiser.  The money raised through this event will be pooled with the funds we will raise at our annual fundraiser in April (last year was the Casino Night).  It is the intent of the BAHL Board to use these funds to cover the expense of sandblasting and painting the support beams in the arena this summer.  This was a project we wanted to complete last summer along with the electrical work, but our fundraising efforts fell just a bit short.

      Team & player photos will be taken next week!  Please check with your Team Manager or Age Group Director for your team’s schedule and order packet. 

       

      Boys & Girls Festival:

       

      The annual festival will be held March 10-13 in Helena.  On the main page of our website is a download link for more information on the festival and the application necessary for attendance.  The festival is open to players born in 1993-1998. 

       

      Representatives of the BAHL:

       

      About this time each year as we are all getting a bit weary of our schedules, the cold weather, the bad roads, etc., it seems that our temperament changes as well.  I have unfortunately heard some reports of our BAHL members not conducting themselves with the best of manners while at games away from our arena and in a few instances, here at home.  Please remember what a great sport you have chosen to be a part of and the example you as a parent or coach or even player are setting for those around you.  This is a great game, but it is just a game and it is for your kids.  Our arena, just as every Montana arena, has a zero tolerance policy which means poor behavior is not permitted. 

       

      While you are in the stands or on the bench, help everyone out by keeping your cool or assisting another parent or coach with keeping theirs!

       

      Sad News:

       

      Our hockey community lost a parent and coach this week.  Barry Lynn has been a long-time supporter of BAHL hockey over the years, serving in various capacities at the BAHL and volunteering as a coach even after his kids were done playing.  Please keep Barry’s wife Charlotte, and sons Michael and Daniel in your thoughts and prayers this week.

       

      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).

         

        Mouthguards:

         

        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.
