Rewarding. Fun. Vital.

BHA Coaching and Managing


BHA’s success with its house and travel programs lies in the dedication from our parent volunteers. 

Working together, BHA parent and professional coaching provides high-impact training and practices unlike any other hockey association in the area. It is the expectation of BHA that our parent coaches are on-ice for practices to work individually with our players or alongside professional trainers to ensure that our players are working hard, being safe and having fun.

If you are interested in becoming a coaching volunteer, team manager or want more information on how to become a parent volunteer please email BHA President Rob Runco.
