Bainbridge Roller Hockey League Mission

“Bainbridge Roller Hockey League encourages spirited competition, teamwork, good sportsmanship, and fun on and off the rink. We strive for a mix of age, gender and ability in every division. Our community embraces the physical challenge, encourages leadership and values fair play for all.”

Zoom Info Night - Tuesday, April 9th

We will have an information night for parents, held over Zoom, at 7:30PM.  New families are encouraged to attend, but it is not mandatory.   The information will be familiar to returning families, so they should feel free to skip.

Don’t worry, if you can’t make it, you can access the slides here: [SLIDES]

Please Register By April 8th

Please register your player by April 8th.  We will continue to accept registrations after that, but registering by April 8th will help us plan for the 2024 season.

Evaluations will be on April 16th and 17th.  We have all players skate, even new skaters, so that we can balance the teams.

Gear Swap - Tuesday, March 26th

(If you couldn't make the Gear Swap, email info@bihockey.org, we will do our best to get you equipped)
 
Gear Swap is this Tuesday, March 26th at the rink at 7PM.  Fortunately, the forecast shows no rain!
 
At the gear swap, there will be marked areas for each type of gear.  You are welcome to look through and find what you need.  If you cannot find skates, gloves, or a girdle, we will have tables with new gear that you can try on to find the right size.  We received a donation that will enable us to purchase some gear for the gear swap.  We will have a sheet to take down what sizes people need and we will stretch the budget as far as we can.

"Try Hockey Night" - March 12th and 20th

If your child is interested in hockey, but not quite sure, we will be hosting "Try Hockey Night" at the Battle Point Rink on March 12 and March 20th, from 5-7PM.  The rink is next to the pickleball courts.  We will be there, even if the weather is wet.

This is an informal opportunity to try on the gear and, if the weather cooperates, do some skating.  We will also be there to answer questions.

If the weather is wet, we cannot skate on the surface, but interested players can still try on the gear and do a little stick work on the rink in street shoes.

You can email info@bihockey.org if you have any questions.

I'm Thinking about Joining, What Should I Know?

  1. All practices and games are at Battle Point Park
  2. We have a gear swap (see the calendar) to make it easier for new players to get the gear they need.
  3. Our league emphasizes participation, sportsmanship, and fun.

2024 League Registration

League registration is now open!

You can access registration at this link:
https://bihockey.sportngin.com/register/form/352501478

For 2024, we have added a self-service discounted registration.  We hope that most families can afford the normal registration fee, which is $225 with a discount for additional players from a family.  If it makes a difference for your family's participation, please feel welcome to choose the discounted registration.  No questions asked.  Full scholarships are also available, for those, please contact the league at info@bihockey.org

Get Ready for the 2024 Season!

We are getting ready to launch the 2024 season!  You will see links and information shift around for the next few days.  We will post here and send an email announcement when we are ready to take registrations.

New Skaters Welcome!

The BRHL welcomes new skaters!  Every season we have new skaters from elementary school to high school.  Even skaters who are just beginning are getting into the action within weeks.

We're here to make roller hockey accessible:

  • All games and practices at Battle Point Park
  • We host a gear swap to outfit players with as much free gear as possible.
  • Our league emphasizes participation and good sportsmanship.  We are here for the kids to have a great experience.

"When are Practices and Games?"

All games and practices are held at the Battle Point Park rink.  Teams practice on a Monday-Wednesday or Tuesday-Thursday schedule.

The practice times are:

Division 1 - 5:30PM

Division 2 - 6:30PM

Division 3 - 7:30PM

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

You don't want to miss Gear Swap!  Many of our players can get much of what they need for free from the gear swap.

Gear Swap is coming up on March 26, 2024 at 7 p.m. at the rink at Battle Point Park. 

Here's a handy visual gear guide and FAQ!

You can 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.

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

  1. Hockey Helmet, with a protective face cage
  2. Mouth guard
  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. In-Line 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!

Board Repaired - Thanks to BI Parks Foundation and Cogwheel Construction

At the end of the season last year, a rink board failed during an intense D2 Championship Game.  In November, the Bainbridge Island Parks and Trails Foundation funded a new board.  Cogwheel Construction, led by Brandon Keller, one of our D2 coaches, installed the board and it looks great.  Many thanks to BIPTF and Cogwheel Construction!

Thanks to Bainbridge Community Foundation for Funding Our Goalie Creases

A big thanks to Bainbridge Community Foundation for funding the purchase of new red tiles to make permanent goalie creases through their community grants program.  They look great and require no maintenance.

Jersey Distribution

Jerseys will be distributed at your team practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

As a part of this process, the league collects a $45 uniform deposit in the form of a check. These checks are not deposited, but are held until the end of season. If a jersey is not returned at the end of the year, the check will be used to purchase a replacement jersey for next year. When a jersey is returned, you have the option of getting your checks back or donating the money to the league. If possible, please make your deposit with a check.

If you are available to help us manage the chaos, a Sign-Up Genius is here

Evaluations - April 14th

We’re looking forward to Evaluation Day on Friday, April 14th. All league players in all divisions must participate in the evaluation. This is an easy 20-minute skate that allows us to create teams with evenly distributed levels of ability. Please check the schedule below to determine your skate time.

Players must wear full game-ready gear for evaluations, including mouth guard. Please arrive at the rink 30 minutes prior to your skate time to allow time to gear up.

Division 1 (7-10 year olds) 5:30PM
Division 2 (11-13 year olds) 6:30PM
Division 3 (14-17 year olds) 7:30PM

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.  If you have any questions or need a make-up time, please email info@bihockey.org.  We have not scheduled make-up times yet, but will get back to you when we know what information we need.

Volunteers

We need help from parents to make this event work.  You can find the Sign-Up Genius here:

https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0F4EA8AD28ABF49-414

Jobs include handing out pinnies and traffic management at the rink door.  If you have been in the league for a few years, we also need “ambassadors” to help new players manage all of the gear.

2023 Season Calendar Posted

We have finalized the 2023 BRHL Season schedule.  You can find the schedule to the right.  There are two big changes this year:

1. We are moving the start of the season earlier and ending earlier.  We are ending on July 1 to make it easier for families to plan summer travel.

2. We are changing our annual "Battle for the Point" activity into a mini-tournament to be held after the season ends.  We hope to offer games through most of July.

 

We hope these changes make life easier for families in the league, while still offering hockey to our players through July.

WE ALWAYS NEED VOLUNTEERS!

Hi Roller Hockey Families,

After our awesome players, the best thing about BRHL is the amazing parent and volunteer community.  We are always looking for volunteers to join our board and help the season progress smoothly.  

If you are even a tiny bit interested or know someone else who might be a good fit, let us know at info@bihockey.org.

Although any position can be learned, if you have particular experience/interest in these current areas of need, that would be a plus:

Recruiting/social media

Rink maintenance 

Snack shack coordinator

Gear manager

It's an informal and fun group with the aim of continuing to create a great hockey experience for our kids in service to the mission of the organization.
