Avoiding Hockey Burnout

Attached is a great article published by Minnesota Hockey with tips to avoid hockey burnout - just how much is too much? Great read for coaches and parents. If you have any fun ideas you want to share - please email our webmaster to post, or contact your parent rep!


In the case of inclement weather, the following has been the practice of the BW Blades:

Practice:  If the coaches are willing and able to make it in, then practice will be held as scheduled.  However, parents use your judgment, if you are rural or cannot make it in, just let your parent rep or coach know. .

Games:   This is best decided by the coaches and parent drivers.   Again, work with your parent reps to discuss travel and who can make it.  If games are cancelled for any reason, you MUST notify the scheduler immediately. 

Web Scoring, Team Pages & More

Web Scoring:  PeeWee, 19U and 12U games are now scored through a new app, eliminating the need to submit score sheets to the league secretary (however, they still need to be kept and signed in case of incident reports).  Neely Zach is in charge of web scoring for peewees and Shannon Meyer will take care of the12U and 19U.   All game scores and stats will be available at www.ndaha.org and by clicking the game box at the top of the page to display details, or your league page.   You can follow their twitter account as well for tweets of all league scores.    Questions?  Contact Shannon Meyer.

Sports Ngin App:  Has an app available-  search out your specific team(s) (i.e BW Blades PeeWees), to add as many teams as you like.  Only information on the Team Pages will show up in the app.

Team Pages  Each team has its own page which can be a source for communication for your team.  If you are interested in maintaining the team page for a specific team, contact Shannon and she can give you webmaster access to that page.  Our platform is easy to use and there are many things that can be shared.  Check out the news posted on the PW and Squirt pages!

Arena Locations:   If your team has an away game, and you aren't sure where the arena is, click on the "location" on the game in the calendar, and it will bring up the address and a local map of the arena.

Looking for Information?:  If there is something you aren't finding, or more information you'd like to see on the webpage, please see the contact us tab, all board members and other contacts are listed on that page.   Team Managers and coaches will be listed soon on the Team Pages.
