BHB is currently experiencing a Goaltender shortage in the Bantam and Peewee age groups for the upcoming season.
We currently have 84 skaters registered and only 5 Goalies. If we cannot find a Goalie before the season starts, we will have an average roster size of nearly 17 skaters per team. We are hoping to find one additional player to commit to Goalie so we can get to a 6th team.
We have 99 skaters and only 5 Goaltenders committed to the season. BHB would like to get to 8 Peewee teams with this amount of skaters. Based on our registration figures, we are looking to add additional 2-4 additional Goalies for the season.
We are planning to discuss this issue at the Parent meetings, but want to get it out in the forefront before those take place. If your player is willing to even consider playing Goaltender this season, please reach out to Kaine (firstname.lastname@example.org) to ask questions or discuss options.
Squirts/U10, Mites, and Termites
To ensure that this issue does not persist in upcoming years, we encourage players in all levels to try the position of Goalie at least a few times throughout the season. A "Try Goalie For A Day" event will be upcoming and we hope to have a great turnout! Stay tuned for more information.
It is critical for BHB to resolve this issue quickly so we can schedule games and practices for the appropriate number of teams at each age group. If we are unable to fill all of these teams with a Goalie, the rosters will grow and many games and tournaments will need to be cancelled and moved around, which does not make for an ideal situation for any team.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions.
