    In order to continuously improve the Bay County Blizzard program, we have developed our 2014-2015 BCHA Coaches Evaluation form.

    It is important that you complete the form and let us know your coaches' (Head and Assistant) strengths and weaknesses, offer up any compliments, concerns or constructive thoughts.  Feedback is given to our Coaches but all evaluations are confidential.

    Evaluations are carefully reviewed and used to help develop our coaches and referenced in determining coaches for the next season.

    You can submit completed forms directly to Gary Gaffney, BCHA Coaching Director or place in the Gold Box at the Arena.  Please submit your evaluation by Wednesday, March 11th.

    If you have any questions, please contact Gary Gaffney at samnoahgaffney@aol.com.

    Please take the time to let us know your thoughts.


    The Bay County Hockey Association (BCHA) 2015 spring season is approaching soon and planning is underway to ensure players and families have an enjoyable and successful spring!

    Part of the planning process is to ensure that we have coaches ready for our U 6, U 8, Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget (house) divisions.

    The Association is looking for energetic adults who are willing to volunteer their time to help our youth develop their hockey skills, learn about team work and sportsmanship and having fun!

    The qualifications and requirements for coaching can be found in our BCHA By-Laws in Article II (Head Coach, House and Travel Divisions), Page 6.  Our By-Laws can be reviewed with the following link (scroll down to BCHA Constitution):  http://www.baycountyblizzard.com/page/show/595664-board.

    If you are interested in volunteering in this very important and satisfying position, please review the attached BCHA Coaching Request Application.  Please consider filling it out.  You can send the form to BCHA Operations Director Brent Pobanz at bpobanz@me.com.

    All applications must be submitted no later than Monday, March 9th.

    All coaches will then be selected by the BCHA Coaches Selection Committee (as outlined in the BCHA By-Laws in Article VII, Section 4, Page 5).

    Please let us know if you have any questions and we hope you consider this opportunity to volunteer!

    Although the temperature still shows it's winter, the spring hockey season is right around the corner!  With that, we wanted to send out our BCHA 2015 Spring Newsletter which describes everything you need to know about registering for the spring season (registration process, draft date/times, ice fees and ice time).

    Even though we are winding down our Fall/Winter season, the BCHA will be having our spring draft earlier than in the past and we wish to make sure you have all of the information available to you in plenty of time.

    Please forward and tell your family, friends and neighbors that spring hockey will soon be here!
