All travel hockey players must be registered with USA Hockey before beginning practice for the season (practices start in August). Registration can be completed online at the USA Hockey website. Once you have completed your registration online, you will receive an e-mail confirmation. Please forward this email to your team manager, and use the registration number when you register for BBYHA travel hockey. Your child will not be permitted to practice unless USA Hockey and BBYHA registrations have been completed.
The BBYHA Guide for Parents provides information on what to expect, and what is expected of you, as a parent of a BBYHA hockey player.
BBYHA Player Code of Conduct for 10U, 12U, 14U or BBYHA Player Code of Conduct for 8U. Please review these expectations and the consequences for violations with your player.

Travel players will generally want to purchase their own equipment (also check with your team manager who may be able to help you find someone else's outgrown gear). Rental gear is primarily intended for house players, but any travel player wanting to rent equipment may do so subject to availability. Please contact your team manager for more information.
The Bloomington Blades Youth Hockey Association endorses the USA Hockey American Development Model. The ADM provides age-appropriate guidelines that are intended to help our kids enjoy hockey and develop their skills in a way that is appropriate for their stage of development. For more information on the American Development Model, visit our ADM information page.
