BTHL Meeting Summary and Slides

By BTHL 07/27/2022, 9:00pm EDT

Thanks to everyone who was able to make the meeting.

Slides are available here.

A couple of additional notes:

Associations planning 8U teams please coordinate with Jamie Williamson about number of teams, relative skill level, and available ice. Email

Associations please review the Gamesheet FAQ and let us know your vote on using this electronic gamesheet/scoresheet in the league this year. This would replace paper scoresheets and eliminate the need for team managers to separately upload scoresheet photos and report penalties and scores. Home teams would need to provide an iPad to use during games.

Also let us know your vote on whether we should run a Seeding Tournament for the B/Rec division this year.

Email with your votes.

Team Applications will be online soon. A link will be posted on the BTHL website.

A Zoom Meeting link will be sent prior to the meeting. If you are unable to attend, slides and notes will be available after the meeting.
