The Beaver Dam Hockey Association (BDHA) is committed to developing youth hockey in the greater Beaver Dam and surrounding area communities, while teaching our players the value of sportsmanship and being a team player. Our intent is to increase our skaters' enjoyment of the game of hockey, advance and grow their skills, and help develop their character. BDHA is a Division 3 member of the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association in Region 5.
As the COVID-19 pandemic affects our everyday lives, the Beaver Dam Family Center wants to assure you that the health and well-being of our athletes and members continues to be paramount. Given this, the Beaver Dam Family Center has decided to suspend spring programming for now and will be removing ice effective Monday, March 16th.
This decision does not come lightly. We know the Family Center is a second home for many of our skaters. However, the Family Center Board decided it was in the best interest of our community to do our part and suspend programming for the time being.
The goal is to have the ice restored by April 20th. However, the situation remains fluid and this may change. We will work to keep you informed of any calendar updates. As a result, all spring programs are suspended and include:

Are you interested in introducing your child to ice skating and the sport of hockey? If so, we have a path for your child to follow. Hockey starts here! Read on...
In our Hockey 1 & 2 and Girls Developmental Programs, participants will learn the essential fundamentals of skating. As children progress in skating skills, developmental hockey skills will be introduced. These intro programs last 7 weeks and are offered 5 times throughout the year. Hockey 3 & 4 is the next step in the developmental sequence to continue to progress skaters and typically for skaters at the 8U and 10U levels. Hockey 3 & 4 is offered in spring, summer, and fall. Participants can register at any time during the session and for as many sessions as needed. We offer an equipment loan program, though it is helpful if you can provide skates. Both of these programs are free. Click here for more information about these programs.
The next 7-WEEK Hockey 1 & 2, Hockey 3 & 4, and Girls Developmental 1 & 2 session will start at a date to be determined based on the COVID-19 situation.
As children gain confidence and progress through the introductory programs (Hockey 1 & 2 and Girls Developmental) they will move into our 6U Atoms program. In Atoms, participants (generally, ages 5-6) continue the fundamentals of skating with added hockey skills and scrimmages. Full hockey equipment is required. This program is offered once per year during the regular hockey season. For more information, please click here.
8U Mite players are generally 7 and 8 year-olds and work on building confidence and beginning team play skills. Skaters meet for practice at least twice a week and play cross-ice games on weekends with local associations. Full hockey equipment is required. This program is offered once per year during the regular hockey season. For more information, please click here.
BDHA offers competitive team play for ages 10U-14U for both co-ed teams and girls-only teams. Click on the link below to learn more. Click here for information about the Girls Wildfire program (8U-14U).
A USA hockey registration number is required to register for all programs, which is free for kids 6 or under, as of December 31. If your child is over 6 years of age and you are registering for the introductory programs (Hockey 1 & 2 and/or Girls Developmental 1 & 2), contact our Registrar prior to registration to see about possibly waiving the USA hockey fee by participating in our USA Hockey Try for Free Days. The USA Hockey fee is required for all other levels.
Good luck in Playdowns BDHA teams!!
