Congratulations to all our players and thank you to all our members and families on another great season! Now while this year is fresh in our minds, lets take a minute to fill out the annual end of season survey.
BAHA belongs to all of us, and we hope that as many people as possible will share feedback on their experience this year. Please let us know how things went and how we can make BAHA a better, stronger organization going forward into the 2018-2019 season and beyond.
Here is the link to the online survey. Please share with any family members who might not be on the member account mailing list. We will post this link on our facebook page as well. Thank you again, and we couldn't do it without you!!

Ages 4-8, cost $450 ** More confident skaters, can skate independently, can stop and turn, beginning to move with stick and puck. The focus of this group is fine tuning skating skills, start learning the basics of the game of hockey. This group meets 2 times a week. Friday at 5:30pm and Sunday at 7:55am. Towards the end of the season we schedule some fun games with other local associations. Total of 2 hours of ice a week
YOUTH 8U & GIRLS 8U
ages 5-8, cost $625 ** Stronger skaters, can stop, turn, move the puck. This group practices once during the week and typically has one practice and one game on the weekend. Games are at Leddy park and some travel to away games is necessary. Furthest rinks we play are Middlebury and St. Albans. Total of 3 hours of ice a week.
EQUIPMENT NEEDED: It is recommended that skaters at all levels have full gear: skates, helmet, elbow pads, neck guard, shin guards, hockey pants, chest protector and gloves. All skaters need a minimum of skates, helmet, gloves and a stick. The more padding the less it hurts to fall or get hit with a puck!
