    2020-2021 Season

    Welcome to BW Blades Youth Hockey Association

    BW Blades Youth Hockey Association (BWBYHA) provides hockey and a lot of fun for players, parents, and fans of hockey in the Twin Town Community.  Our goal is to teach the fundamentals of hockey, sportsmanship, and clean competition to all age and skill levels.  We strive to field competitive teams, but most important want to provide a fun environment for all players who show an interest in the exciting sport of ice hockey.

    BWBYHA is a USA Hockey sanctioned organization.  We adhere to the rules and standards of USA Hockey and the North Dakota Amateur Hockey Association (NDAHA).  All volunteers, board members, and coaches are background screened by USA Hockey. In addition, all coaches are certified by USA Hockey and have undergone general coaching instruction as well as age-specific instruction.


    We are still open for registration! Any Level First Year Free!

    The city of Wahpeton, ND has implemented a Mask Mandate in our town.  This includes our hockey rink.  Ella Stern and Harry Stern Sports Arena are requiring masks upon entry.  They have updated their policy to include no entry into the building more than 15 minutes prior to the event start time.  In conjunction with that, attendees must exit the building within 15 minutes of the events ending time.  

    Please, please abide by these rules.  Regardless of how we each feel about masks, there is a lot of personal responsibility in our actions.  We want this season to stay open as long as possible. Compliance with rink requirements is one of the things we can easily do to help keep the kids on the ice.
