Almost time for hockey sign up

The Boundary Minor Hockey Association will hold registration at the arena on Sept. 5 and 10.

BMHA president Andrew Bartelings told the Times that the association has partnered with a number of local businesses who will sponsor kids who cannot afford the registration fees. “So if any kid is serious and wants to play hockey we have the financial supports in place already

The ice is going in at the Midway arena soon and the 2014-2015 hockey season follows close behind.

Registration for the Boundary Minor Hockey Association (BMHA) will begin tomorrow on Friday, September 5th from 6-8 p.m. at the arena.

All registered members will receive a free hotdog. Parents, siblings and guests can also enjoy hotdogs by donation.

BMHA president Andrew Bartelings told the Times that the association has partnered with a number of local businesses who will sponsor kids who cannot afford the registration fees. “So if any kid is serious and wants to play hockey we have the financial supports in place already,” he said.

He said Boundary Minor Hockey is looking for a Referee in Chief. A few parents have stepped up to volunteer to take a ref clinic on October 5th in Grand Forks. Former Referee in Chief Ross Lautard has moved on to Grand Forks, but Bartelings said Lautard has stated his willingness to help get the program working in the West Boundary.

A second registration day will be held on Wednesday, September 10th from 5-7 p.m. for those who cannot make the Friday date. If you cannot make the registration days but would like to register your child please contact Sarah Geen @ 250-449-8200 or email bmharegistrar1@ gmail.com. Registration forms are available on their website www.boundaryminorhockey.ca

Geen told the Times that early registration was light and though they hope to have teams in Junior Novice, Senior Novice, Atom, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget it all depends on the number of kids who get registered.

Boundary Minor Hockey also invites applications for coaches, assistant coaches, referees and on-ice helpers for the 2014-2015 season. All successful applicants must complete criminal record checks and appropriate training clinics.
