Become A Referee

A new season of Ball Hockey is quickly approaching and there is a requirement that all officials must be registered and certified in order to referee in any OBHF sanctioned league.

Referee training is starting and if you want to officiate this season, now is the time to register and attend a clinic in your area. For information and registration please click here.

Officiating ball hockey is a great way to stay in touch with the game, get some exercise and earn a bit of money.

Ice Hockey Goalie Incentives

Goaltenders require abilities such as physical strength, flexibility, hand-eye coordination, balance, endurance, as well as the command of technique, systems and strategies. Many years of practice and training go into becoming a goaltender to enhance the level of individual performance.

Year after year ball hockey leagues across the country continue to have many parents upset when scores run high. In most cases one team may be equipped with an experienced ice hockey goalie while other teams are just rotating through their roster on a weekly basis just to get by.

As a league our main priority is for the children to have fun, however we do understand that sometimes when a team is not equipped with a proper goalie it may get frustrating for everyone at times.

This year we will be offering an incentive to all ice hockey goalies tyke through atom registering with the South Simcoe Ball Hockey Leagues.

Families registering their children as a goalie must do so online (Innisfil, Barrie, Bradford or Georgina) but must also fill out our goalie application form which gives us a little more information on goalie background.

Once we confirm that your child has been playing on a team as a full time goalie the league will refund $85 back to the family as we get closer to our Championship weekend in late June.

2015 Team Rosters

Welcome to the 2015 spring season.

We are excited to get the season started but before we do we like to remind you of what to expect on opening day and what parents can do to make things run smoothly.

Within the next couple of days a coach will contact you with information regarding your child’s team. If your team does not have an assigned coach a league representative will contact you with further information. If you do decide to coach one of these teams please contact us ASAP. 

We recommend that everyone try to arrive at least half hour early so that kids can pick up uniforms and go through some basic playing rules with the coaches.

Please make sure that all players are in full equipment. This includes a helmet with full facial cage, hockey gloves, soccer shin guards, hockey stick with no plastic blade and running shoes. If any of these items are missing you child will not be allowed to step on the playing surface.

While the coach and players get to know each other we ask that you kindly write your child’s name on the back his helmet using a piece of masking tape and black marker.

If you should ever arrive to a game and it has already begun please make sure you check in with our timekeeper.

The league will supply warm up and game balls. These are to remain at the rink and not to take home.

Our goal is to keep friends playing with friends but our biggest priority is to maintain a balanced level of play.

If we need, we will rebalance teams between your third and forth game.

Lets have a great season!!!

2014 Team Photos

The Barrie Minor Ball Hockey League would like to thank Terence Scarnicchia for his hard work getting the kids organized for their team and individual pictures.

We dedicated a website for high-resolution team and individual pictures for you to download at no cost. A username and password was sent out in early July to access these photos. If you did not receive it send us and email and we will gladly forward the information to you.

Picture Day this year delayed our games slightly because of last minute arrivals and retakes. Moving forward, next year we have dedicated a day just for pictures very similar to how Barrie Soccer and other local sports in town do it.

2014 Rosters & Info

The Barrie Minor Ball Hockey League is set to start on April 22nd. All games will be played at East Bayfield either Tuesday or Thursday nights depending on the division. We will conclude the season with our DAY OF CHAMPIONS on Saturday June 28.

Coaches should be contacting you shortly. If you haven't received a call or email by Sunday April 20, please give us a call.
Please make sure you check your JUNK or SPAM mail folders before you do.

Our volunteers worked hard to try and accommodate your requests while making the teams. No further changes will be made.

You will be asked by the coach to arrive earlier on your first game. This is so that you can pick up your uniform and get to know the team before we begin.
Please make sure all that all players are properly equipped with a Helmet (full facial protection), Hockey Gloves, Soccer Shin Guards, Running Shoes, and a Hockey Stick with NO plastic blade. A failure to have any of this equipment and a referee will tell your child to step up off the floor until all requirements are met.

All players are to check in with the convener upon arrive so that we can have the players signed in on the game sheet. If you arrive late please let the timekeeper know your child's name and number along with the team they are on.

We will provide warm up balls for the teams to practice prior to your games. These are to remain at the rink and not to take home. We will also provide goalie equipment for those that choose to go in net. This equipment is to be returned after every game and hung back in the goalie room just as it was found.

Below is a list of team rosters with coaches names and your first game start times. The entire schedule is available on our website. Full team and player statistics will be available after every game.

Because the season is short we will not make any trades, however if we do notice certain players to score quite frequently we may add a three goal rule per player. This will promote the child to pass more and give opportunity to other players on the team.

Lastly, if your child is in our squirt division please make sure that at least one parent is on the floor with your child while we go through the drills in our first half hour. any water breaks will take place off the floor.

We look forward to a fantastic season
