      Hello From The BAHL Office! 

       

      Responsible Parent Tip of the Week:  Avoid having your children specialize in one sport too early. It can lead to burnout and overuse injuries, and perhaps worst of all, falling out of love with the sport.

       

      Christmas break:  reminder that the BAHL takes a break from regular practices December 23-30 so everyone can enjoy some family time.  A full schedule for arena activities, including drop-in sessions will be posted on our website shortly for that week.  The BAHL office will not be open during that week, although I will be checking emails and phone messages.

       

      This Weekend:

       

      We start our weekend Friday night with a public skate 8:00-10:00 pm.  This skate is open to everyone, but if you show a high school i.d. you will get in for just $5.00, this price includes rental skates! 

       

      Saturday along with our regular morning schedule of Squirts, Mites, and Learn to Play we have public skate 12:30-2:30 pm.  The Varsity team plays Havre Saturday @ 4:45 pm.  Saturday evening, 7:30 pm the Bulls host the Bozeman Ice Dogs.

       

      Sunday morning 10:15 am our Varsity plays Havre again, followed by public skate.

       

      Photos:

       

      Thank you to Lou Ann Madden and Ally for braving the ice for our team and individual photos this week!  For those that were unable to pre-order with an order packet, you will be able to view the photos and order online as well.  As soon as those photos are available on their website, I will send a website link.

       

      Gun Raffle:

       

      Just a reminder that we have a great opportunity to win a new gun and help out the league.  Raffle tickets for our gun raffle can be purchased at the league office or through Connie Murphree.  You can also pick up a packet of 10 tickets to sell to friends and family.  Guns you can win:  Howa 1500 w/power scope, Tikka T3 w/scope rings included, Stoeger/Benelli Condor Shotgun over/under barrel and Benelli Nova Shotgun w/28” barrel.  If you are selling tickets, please return any monies collected to the league office or Connie or to your team manager.  Profits from this raffle go to the league.  Winner will be drawn the night of our Casino Night Fundraiser.

       

      Learn to Play and Learn to Skate:

       

      We are finishing up our second six-week session of both learn to play and learn to skate next week.  The third session starts after the holiday break (January 7 and 8).  Keep talking about these great programs to your friends and neighbors – word of mouth is the best form of advertising!

        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.
