FROM: Hockey Director, Dave Weaver & Youth Commissioner, Mike Wilkinson
I hope everyone enjoyed their Summer and is as excited as we are about the upcoming hockey season! This year should prove to be a monumental year for Bozeman Hockey.
Before tryouts begin, we offer Pre-Season skates for all youth players. All players are encouraged to register for these skates as they will offer instruction, skill development, and will prepare players for tryouts.
We are again offering two, regular season programs.
The travel program is very similar to last season, with programs for Squirts – Midgets (Varsity). With the opening of the Ice Barn teams will participate in practices and games in the new facility!!
