As hockey popularity grows around here, so has the ice and length of season. Bozeman is getting a sheet of ice open 2 whole weeks early this year on September 14th! Details on programs and pricing are here.

You'll find that many clinics are limited to 25 skaters and they intend on strictly adhering to those limits. So, if there's something you want to participate in, be ready on registration day. Read all this stuff BEFORE that.

You'll find an important letter from BAHA Hockey Director, Dave Weaver, in the links below. Please take time to read it. This year is going to be quite different at the rink than folks are used to. Yes, it's COVID-19 safety stuff.

Because we must limit the number of people in the facility at the same time, and maintain social distance, almost every program will be 90 minutes followed by a 30 minute break.

After each ice session, players will have 15 minutes to exit the facility. The next group will enter the facility 15 minutes before their ice session begins.
