Hello all hockey families.
Hockey season is 4 weeks away, and I am excited to get back to it. I am reaching out to all of you to inform you of our annual season Prep camp. This camp is great for power skating and edge control, as well as individual skill work before the season begins. It’s a good time to shake off the cob webs of summer and get back to skating.
Attached is the Daily schedule for the camp. Every morning the group will work on power skating and edge control with our local figure skating coach. (Jr gold medalist in ice dance)
In the afternoon we will be working on different hockey skills. Learning to shoot to score, finding time and space, Driving the net, and how to make yourself an option.
Off ice we will be working on proper stretching technique, and flexibility, as well as plyometric workouts, and some street hockey. So please bring an extra stick if you have one to play outside.
Camp is open to all players ages 5 to 18. If you have a younger player please make sure they are able to get their equipment on and off on their own. Coaches will be available to help tie skates and put on tape. If your player needs lots of help getting dressed they are still welcome to attend camp, we just ask that a parent is here to help them with it.
Youth league Evaluations are August 24th and 25th, and Camp will begin Monday morning August 26th.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I will have registration forms at the front counter, and you are more than welcome to fill one out the next time you are in the building. Otherwise you can fill one out and register your player during evaluations. If you plan to attend but are waiting to register please let me know, so I can have an accurate count for the week.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon.

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.
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 gear, listed 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 InlineWarehouse.com HockeyMonkey.com or HockeyGiant.com. 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.
