      Hello From The BAHL Office! 

       

      Girls program starts November 4th @ 5:45 pm!  This program is open to all girls ages 5-18.  Cost for the season is just $100 but November is no cost!  Registration is not available online for this program - attached to this email is a copy of the registration form – send this to friends, family and neighbors who might be interested.  This form is also available on the youth hockey page of our website as well as at the information center in the rink.

       

      Volunteers are needed for upcoming Bulls games next weekend, October 28 and 29.  You and your skater will sell 50/50 raffle tickets and tickets for our gun raffle along with help after the game with clean up.  This is a great opportunity to see a Bulls game and earn a few hours toward your league service commitment.  Please contact me if you are interested.

       

      Schools Out!:

       

      Join us tomorrow 12:00-2:00 for public skate - $5.00 admission includes skate rental.  Bring a friend and introduce them to our facility!

       

      Coaches:

       

      Coaching Clinics have been set for November 12 and 13.  Level one will be held on November 12 with the level three on the 13th.  Registration for all coaching clinics will be handled through usahockey.com.  Our clinics have not yet been posted to their website, but check their website soon to get in the clinic. 

       

      Modules – please start your age appropriate CEP module now.  Even if you are a new coach who has not yet taken a clinic, please begin your online modules right away.  These modules take some time to complete and team rosters could be affected on December 31st if all coaches do not have proper certification.

       

      Screening – if you have not yet completed the MAHA screening, please do it immediately.  You cannot be added to a team roster without this being completed and an updated list of those who have completed it is made available just twice a month.

       

      Referee:

       

      A second referee clinic has been scheduled for November 6th.  This clinic will begin at 8:00 am.  Plan for 4-6 hours.  This will be the final clinic for the season in Billings.  Please remember that attendance at a clinic is required every season for certification.  The first clinic will be held this weekend on Saturday, October 15th starting at 8:00 am at the arena.

       

      Guns:

       

      Guns, Guns and more Guns!  If you haven’t heard, the BAHL is having a gun raffle.  Ticket sales have begun during Bulls games.  This is a BAHL fundraiser.  All monies earned from ticket sales will stay with the BAHL.   We have had exceptionally high expenses this fall with our mechanical issues.  Fundraising and sponsorships are a great way for us to keep fees low for our skaters.  If you are interested in selling these tickets at your workplace or to family, friends, neighbors, please contact Connie Murphree at mcamurphree@....  The winning ticket will be drawn at the Annual BAHL Casino Night, April 28, 2012.

       

      Mouthguards:

       

      Mouthguards:  All house skaters are invited to receive a free mouthguard with custom fitting from Ostby Orthodontics November 6th 3:00-5:00 pm.  Thank you to Ostby Orthodontics for this great service and for sponsoring the BAHL for the 2011-12 season!

        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.

        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!
