The progression of levels goes as follows:
 
INITIATION
Ages 3-8, cost $250, $75 for first year skaters 8yrs and under.
** New skaters learning the basics from standing alone on skates to moving with a stick and puck. Skate 1 hour per week, on Saturday mornings.  Total of 1 hour of ice per week
 
HOUSE MITES
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!

2018-2019 FACE-OFF MEETING

*** SAVE THE DATE!! ***

SUNDAY 19 AUGUST 2018  8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Location to be determined... more information to come!!

    THANK YOU BAHA SPONSORS!!

    COACHING information for upcoming season

    It's that time of year.  As the new season is rapidly approaching my goal this year is to make sure everyone is qualified and up to date with all requirements before November, unless you are attending a coaching clinic after that. 
     
    To review the coaching assignment process, for the travel teams (10U, 12U & 14U) head coaches & assistant coaches are assigned after try outs.  The rosters and interested coaches are reviewed so we can best pair coaches with teams. For House teams (Initiation, House Mites, Youth 8U) we will look at registration and obviously pair parents with their kids. We will review all coaches interested in leading teams and do our best to pick the best fit for head coach. Help is always needed with the house teams, it usually takes a number of assistant coaches to make the season run smoothly!  
     
    We will be having our annual Coaches Meeting to discuss any new or updated requirements.  As some of you might know some of the requirements are due before stepping on the ice. This year we will be checking prior to the season starting to make sure that all the requirements have been met. 
     
    Coaching Requirements: 
     
    1. Be registered with USA Hockey
    2. Be SafeSport certified, good for 2 years.
    3. Submit a background check and not be "red flagged"
    4. Be listed on an approved roster (which is submitted after try-outs when teams are determined)
    5. Complete the age-specific module (ASM) corresponding to the age group you will be coaching.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Then, on or before 31 December of that same year, every coach must also:
    6. Complete the coaching certification program (CEP) at the level required.

    If you are new to coaching or know someone who would like to coach please send them my way.                                          Alec Smail    at:  smizzity@gmail.com.                                

    Right now the USA hockey website only has one coaching clinic up so far, which is listed below.  If you have any questions on what you might need to coach please email me.  Thanks and hope to see all you out there this year on the ice.
