      Hello From The BAHL Office! 

       

      This weekend we will be very busy at the arena!  Our Mite Tournaments starts Friday evening and continues all weekend with games every hour!  Teams from Great Falls, Bozeman, Helena, Gillette, Cody and Casper will join our two house teams for the weekend.  Due to the tournament, public skate is cancelled Saturday as well as Squirt practice.  Also this weekend will be game four of the Bulls/Bighorns playoff series – Saturday game time of 7:30 pm.

       

      Please do not forget about the annual membership survey.  The survey will only be available for a short time to complete.  Everyone’s input is desired.  When you take the survey, please answer all the questions unless they do not apply to your skater.  The survey link:   https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8SDJCYB

       

      Important Dates:

       

      March 19-30:  Move-up time!  Players who will be in the next age division next season can skate with that age division during these final two weeks of our season.  Only skaters who are moving up next season may participate in this.  Second year Peewees:  you are welcome to join the Varsity team for practices since there is not a Bantam team.

        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:

        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.
