In an effort to ensure everyone is receiving all information relating to Bismarck Hockey, please check this area of our website often for any important news and updates. You can also check out our Facebook posts, which are located to your right.
For any new members or members that need to freshen up on your hockey knowledge and how the hockey season runs, please take a peek at the FAQ page! We will try to update this continuously, as we receive questions from parents - if one person is asking, someone else is wondering the same thing.
The Bismarck Bobcats are looking for a few squirt/U10 age players to make up the Junior Bobcats for the season and be introduced with Scratch during the introductions prior to each game.
If you are interested, please email Brad Feldman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tryout groups for Bantams and Peewees have been posted.
Please note the goalie schedule for the Peewees, as they will get shuffled around a little bit.
Also, please remember the tryout sessions are closed to parents. We will also be collecting your DIBS checks and the Gun Raffle Committee will also be there to hand out tickets to families.
Games on the weekend will be open to parents and concessions will also be available.
You will find all information regarding registering for our programs under our Registration tab at the top of the page. This includes Summer Ice, Preseason, Intro to Hockey Camp and Regular Season.
Now that we have wrapped up our 2019 Intro to Hockey sessions, we wanted to reach out and let you know about the upcoming hockey season.
If your kiddo loved hockey during that last few weeks as much as we do, now is the time to sign up for our regular season! And since you already have all the equipment, your child just needs to register and he/she is all set! You can click on the link here to register. Make sure you have a USA Hockey # before starting the registration process, which can be signed up for here.
Once registered, you will want to attend the upcoming Parent Meeting, being held on October 20 from 1:00-2:30 at Capital Ice Complex. If you are unable to attend this meeting, please reach out to our Termites or Mites off-ice coordinators with any questions (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org). Another great resource for information is here, which is our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Regular season will kick off the week of October 28 and the schedules for Mites and Termites have been uploaded through December on our website. You can see those schedules here. BHB will be releasing the groups in the next few weeks and all registered players will receive an email, along with the groups being posted on the website.
For both levels, you can expect to see one practice during the week and a practice on Saturday, with games on Sunday. However, due to sharing ice with lots of other organizations, it is not a consistent schedule and it can change from week to week. We encourage families to keep a close eye on the calendar each week to take note of any changes that have occurred. BHB will be releasing the groups in the next few weeks and all registered players will receive an email, along with the groups being posted on the website.
If your kiddo was not a big fan of hockey, no worries. Just hand in your Intro to Hockey equipment on October 16 and 17 from 6:00-7:30 at Capital Ice Complex.
Any questions, please let us know.
Termite and Mite parent meetings will take place on October 20 at Capital Ice Complex as follows:
Tryouts for Squirts/U10/U12 start next week, October 7! The tryout groups for squirts have been posted here.
No groups will be posted for U10 or U12, as all girls in those specific age groups will tryout together.
When accessing the calendar to view the tryout times, please remember to select all tags that may be applicable to your player's age group. For example, if your player is a U10 girl, then select both "U10BR" and "U10BW" for the appropriate tags. You may also select "BHB" as a tag but also include the age-specific levels for your child.
Also, the Gun Raffle Committee will be setup at the tryouts so you can pick up your Gun Raffle tickets at that time.
We will also have someone at the rink so parents can turn in their DIBS checks, as required in our DIBS policy. If you are unable to drop off a check at the tryouts, you can mail your check to BHB, PO Box 2408, Bismarck, ND 58502.

Bismarck Hockey Boosters is offering a free Sanford Impact Test to all participants ages 12 and up. This test is to gather a baseline for concussion purposes. The tests will be conducted on November 4 and 5 and all tests will be done at Bismarck Career Academy.
In order to complete the testing, Sanford will need the test to be completed on a Chromebook. If you do not have a Chromebook for this test, please let us know so we can get a count to Sanford on how many they need to provide.
Please register here for which session will work best for you: https://doodle.com/poll/azqa44syxu6xxv2a
