The Bradford Minor Ball Hockey League is pleased to announce the opening of the online registration for the 2014 spring season. The season will commence on the week of April 21st and will run into the first week of July. We have scheduled ALL final games of the season to be played on a Saturday afternoon so that we can celebrate with awards presentation and a BBQ that players, family and friends can enjoy. Depending on the age groups we will be using Monday’s and Wednesday’s as our main playing day with the possibility of one Tuesday game for our Monday group to compensate for any game that falls on the Monday of a long weekend. Because the season is played on weekdays, spots are limited so don’t hesitate to register as divisions may fill up quickly. (www.bradfordballhockey.com)
Please keep in mind that if you are registering for our Learn to Play program (4 and 5 years olds) that at least one parent for each child registered must volunteer and be part of the program. It’s the only way we can make this work efficiently and teach our kids the fundamentals of the sport. Our program has grown over the years and the request for friends to play with friends will not be allowed unless both those child’s parents volunteer to become coach and assistant coach. (maximum two per team)
Teams will be selected on a coaches draft held one week before the program is to begin. Please answer the questionnaire truthfully so that teams can be balance properly when drafted. We have implemented this in nearby programs and it has worked successfully in past years.
Registration forms, sponsorship documents and more info in regards to the program will be added to our website throughout the week. Currently, Online registration is the only method of registering until we have confirmed our in person registration dates.
We may consider merging with the Innisfil program if our numbers are low. This could mean that each team from Bradford may have to take a 1 or 2 game road trip sometime throughout the season. This won’t be determined until early April.
If a merger should happen all games in Innisfil are played at the Innisfil Recreational Complex located at Yonge and Innisfil Beach Road on Sunday afternoons.
A draft schedule will be made available in early February. This draft schedule would have different scenarios of your days of play if a merger with Innisfil were to happen.
*a merger may be considered in all age groups except for our Squirt division.
