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 and summer. 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 session of Hockey 1 & 2 starts March 25 with a Parent Orientation and equipment hand-out for new skaters. Girls Developmental 1 & 2 session starts on March 26th.
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.
