TRAVEL Registration will close on Tuesday August 30th.  As a reminder, all players must be REGISTERED for Fall Travel prior to attending the preseason clinics and travel tryouts.  Players will not be allowed on the ice without a valid registration. Thank you for your cooperation. In addition, all registered Travel Bantam players should attend the preseason clinics as they will include a review of the checking clinics.

Beginning this fall, all Bluehawk travel players will be required to wear NBHL sweat pants and jackets to all games.  The Board passed this rule on the recommendation of the coaches.  There will be a fitting at Ron's following tryouts.
