      Hello From The BAHL Office! 

       

      We started our final sessions of Learn to Skate and Learn to Play have begun with a stronger than expected number of skaters!  In past seasons this session of our programs experience a significant drop in registrations.  This is great news and is a credit to our coaches, instructors and volunteers who are putting a great program on the ice each week!

       

      The Billings Bulls are playoff bound!  The first round of playoffs will begin the week of March 12th.  We will be host to at least two home games that week.  The exact schedule will be determined once their opponent is determined after the last game of the season.  This may mean weeknight games which will cancel regular team practices or the games may be on the weekend.  As soon as a specific schedule has been set, your coaches and team managers will be notified.

       

      Responsible Sports Tip of the Week:  Help your young athlete to understand the value of a good opponent. Good opponents bring out the best in us. Model this attitude by talking about opponents respectfully. Never demonize the opponent as "the enemy".

       

      Equipment:

       

      Hard to believe, but the end of our season is in view.  For those skaters who have equipment from our rental program, we will ask for that equipment to be returned to the arena on Wednesday, March 28th beginning at 5:30 pm.  If your child’s team skates after this date, please make arrangements with me to return the equipment at a later date.

       

      This Weekend:

       

      This weekend the figure skaters take over with their annual competition!  This is a great opportunity to see a different side of ice skating.  All day Saturday you can watch different competitive events.

       

      BAHL Casino Night:

       

      The Marketing Committee which is responsible for planning and organizing this annual event will be meeting next Tuesday, February 28th at 6:30 pm in the board room.  If you are interested in helping out with this event, please join us for this meeting.

        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.
