Save the Date!

Our annual pool party and registration event to kick off the 2016-17 season is scheduled for Saturday, August 6, 8:00pm-10:00pm, at the Bryan Park Pool.

Join us and get reacquainted with friends and teammates, enjoy some refreshments, cool off in the pool, and complete your registration paperwork. We'll also be sizing and jerseys and warmup suits.

Again this year we'll have a "yard sale" area so plan bring your old outgrown gear or warmup pants to donate, and pick up stuff you can use for $5/item or $10 for skates. Proceeds will benefit the Blades and help keep your fees low!

Please complete our online registration in advance to streamline the process and allow more time for fun in the pool! Thanks, welcome (or welcome back), and we'll see you soon!

Looking Ahead

Our practices in Columbus start in August! We are still finalizing schedules so check check your team calendar. If you are not registered you will not be permitted to practice. August will be here before you know it, so please go ahead and take care of your registration now.

We also emphasize that the Columbus practices require full gear and are not optional. Please arrive in time to get dressed and be on the ice at the start of the practice. From the east side of Bloomington, it's about a one-hour drive to the rink. Team managers will help coordinate car-pooling. If you are planning to play travel hockey you need to attend these practices to get in shape for the Buckeye League seeding tournament and early season games.

The Buckeye League season opens October 1. The pre-season seeding games are planned for the weekend of September 17-18, in the Cincinnati/Dayton area. Please keep your calendar clear that weekend as full participation is expected.

Want more?

This year there will be an opportunity for players seeking additional tournament play and a higher level of competition. Team Gnawbone is intended to be a regional AA/A level youth hockey program for Squirt, Peewee, and Bantam players in the Columbus Flames, South Indy Sharks, and Bloomington Blades programs.

Players will be selected by tryout.

The program will provide several additional practices, games, and tournaments before, during, and after the regular Buckeye League season. This program is an optional addition to — NOT a replacement for — the regular Bloomington Blades practice, league, and tournament schedule.
