BDMHA’s Hockey Development Philosophy


BDMHA’s focus is two-fold:

1.     Skill development over wins and losses.

2.     To create and nurture the passion and enjoyment of coming to the rink to play hockey. 


BDMHA’s skill development is focused on developing a player's individual abilities and techniques within the team environment and ensuring good individual habits and details for our players, that they can carry forward the rest of their hockey lives.  


Creating the passion of coming to the rink in a safe environment, where we encourage and challenge players to do their best. 


Our BDMHA hockey culture is inclusive. We respect ourselves, our teammates and coaches, our opposition, the officials and volunteers that make the game possible, and our community.
