2019 Opening Day Schedule

Roller Hockey Families!

Well the weather turned on us this week and we were left with only one night of practice where kids could meet their teammates and actually skate. Ideally, we get a week of practice in ahead of scrimmage day to allow time for kids to meet their teammates and coaches so in lieu of scrimmaging this weekend we are going to schedule practice times for the teams for both Saturday and Sunday.  These are not mandatory but provide a good chance for kids and teams to get caught up on rink time.

We will have team jerseys at the rink on Saturday for the teams and kids that have not had a chance to pick them up.  Bring a $45 jersey deposit check to pick up your jersey.



D1-m/w teams 11:00-12:00, t/th teams 12:00-1:00

D2-m/w teams 1:00-2:00, t/th teams 2:00-3:00

D3-m/w teams 3:00-4:30, t/th teams 4:30-6:00



D1-m/w teams 11:00-12:00, t/th teams 12:00-1:00

D2-m/w teams 1:00-2:00, t/th teams 2:00-3:00

D3-m/w teams 3:00-4:30, t/th teams 4:30-6:00

When the sun comes back we will get back to our regularly scheduled games.

And for the record here is our rainy day policy...

BRHL Rain Policy for Practices

BRHL practices in the rain (most of the time)!  Street hockey, practice in sneakers and full gear is the way to go when it rains!  This is a great opportunity for players to improve stickhandling, shooting and game positioning skills.  In the event of thunder/lightening practices will be cancelled, otherwise plan to practice.


BRHL Rain Policy for Games

Plan to play!  In the event of unsafe skating conditions, BRHL will make a league decision 30 minutes prior to the start of the game to cancel/reschedule games.  Coaches will be notified and information will be posted on the web site in as timely a manner as possible.

See you at the rink!

"We're New. Any Tips on the Gear?"

Our April 20 evaluation day is mandatory for all players, regardless of experience or ability. This is an easy 20-minute skate that allows us to create teams with evenly distributed levels of ability.

Please arrive with all required gearlisted below, contained in a single hockey (duffel) bag. If you haven’t gathered all the gear yet, today is the day. Order your missing pieces at or Amazon also has a number of items that can be sent 2-day via Prime. For those of you who can do it, a single trip to Play It Again Sports in Lynnwood and Elevate Sporting in Tacoma will almost always get you fully geared up with lovingly worn gear at a very reasonable price.

Bainbridge Roller Hockey League requires that players wear the following to both practices and games:

  1. Hockey Helmet, with a protective face cage
  2. Mouthguard
  3. Hockey Elbow Pads
  4. Hockey Shin Guards
  5. Hockey Gloves
  6. Roller Hockey Girdle 
  7. Protective Cup (boys, required) or Pelvic Protector (girls, optional)
  8. InLine Hockey Pants to fit over the shin guards and girdle
  9. Inline Hockey Skates with softer indoor wheels for new surface 
  10. Wood or composite Hockey Stick, ideally with a composite blade (no plastic blades, please).

Other tips:

  • Lighter colored helmets are cooler under the summer sun. 
  • Ask your dentist if they do free custom sports guards
  • Wheels and bearings wear out, especially on our used gear. If you need help getting  your skates in working order, just ask! 
  • Coaches, board members and veteran families have lots of gear experience and we're happy to help!

UPDATED! Playoff and Championship Schedule

The D1 Schedule has been changed. The Panthers players will be split between the Sharks and Flames.

Calling All Old-Timers!

Our traditional D3 vs. Old-Timers Game is one of the highlights of our Championship Saturday, and we encourage all current D3 players to skate a few shifts on the youngster squad. 

Team Geezer needs all the help it can get, but we must limit participation to parents, coaches, and BRHL alumni. This is our final official league activity, not an all-comers game open to the public.  

It's put up or shut up time, old people! See you at 7:30. 

Rink Repair Complete - All League Activities are On Starting Tuesday July 10th

With a truly incredible effort by our partners at the Parks Department the rink is repaired and ready for use. We will begin all Practices and Games according to the original schedule starting Tuesday July 10th. The games we lost from July 8th will be moved to July 15th. See the updated schedule below and on the site.

All games cancelled Sunday July 8th

Sadly the rink has been damaged by vandalism and is currently unplayable. We will be announcing plans going forward when we get more information. 

Thanks for a Grand Old 4th Parade, Skaters!

A lively group of D1 and D2 players dated in this year's Grand Old 4th Parade, and made quite a splash! Big thanks to organizer Jon Payne and the parent volunteers who walked the route with us and provided much-needed water, candy buckets, and moral support. If you've got photos to share, please send them to Here are some, courtesy of the Bainbridge Islanders Facebook page.
