Mental Health Awareness Session - Nov. 6, 2023

Hello BDMHA Families,
 
On November 6th BDMHA is proud to be offering a mental health awareness session.  The session will be led by former professional hockey player and goaltender Ben Meisner.
 
Ben is a German / Canadian citizen who played his minor hockey in Nova Scotia before moving on to play Prep School hockey for 3 years, followed by an exceptional NCAA Division 1 career where he received a full scholarship and set 12 school records, 2 conference records and 2 all time NCAA Division 1 records.  Following college, Ben played professional hockey in North America and Germany for 13 years, capping off his career with a DEL2 championship last year. Ben now works with the Tasa Minor Hockey Association and serves as an NHL scout.

In addition to all of those accomplishments, Ben wrote an article that was posted in the Players Tribune entitled 'I'm Not Connor McDavid'.  In this article Ben discusses his path and challenges through his minor hockey, school and professional careers.
 
We're very excited to have Ben join us to speak with our players and parents.  This is open to both our players, coaches and parents.  Everyone is encouraged to attend if possible.
 
When: November 6th, 2023
 
Time: 7:00pm to 9:30pm

Where: In Person or Online, HRM 4Pad Multi Purpose Room and Google Meet.  There is space only for the first 40 people who wish to attend in person.
 
When registering, please indicate if you would like to attend in person.  Once the In person attendance is full, a confirmation will be sent to those who have a space.
 
 
Any questions please reach out to Chris Snide, VP Development, c.snide@bedfordblues.com
 
Thank you

Respectful Behaviour and Zero Tolerance Polices

BDMHA is committed to cultivating a safe and productive sports environment and a culture of respect. We expect the highest standards from our players, coaches, team officials, parents and volunteers at all times.

We take pride in being ambassadors for our organization and our community whenever we are at a rink — home or away. We expect all our players and coaches to demonstrate respect for:

  • Themselves;
  • Their teammates;
  • Their coaches;
  • Parents;
  • Volunteers;
  • The game and all of its rules;
  • Opponents;
  • Referees;
  • Any facility we occupy, especially our arena;
  • Our equipment (both personal and association equipment);
  • Guests in our arena;
  • Our neighbours in the community.

Examples of respectful behaviour expected of BDMHA members include (but are not limited to):

  • Players picking up garbage in the dressing rooms and being respectful towards arena staff;
  • Players not complaining about penalty calls either verbally or via body language;
  • Parents and players demonstrating moderation in celebrating goals in blowout games;
  • Parents not cheering opposing team injuries;
  • Coaches not yelling at or berating players or referees;
  • Players “taking a knee” in practice when summoned by coaches and not engaging in distracting/unsafe behaviour.

Our Zero Tolerance Policies can be found (HERE)
