Back Bay is a member and abides by the rules of USA Hockey, NH Amatuer Hockey Association (referred to as GSL) and Seacoast Hockey League. We provide both instructional and travel hockey to youth within the region.
USA Hockey, Inc. is the National Governing Body for the sport of ice hockey in the United States. Its Mission is to promote the growth of hockey in America and provide the best possible experience for all members by encouraging, developing, advancing and administering the sport.
NHAHA (GSL): is a competitive hockey league within the State of NH, only the top 6 ranking teams in each tier have the opportunity for a playoff spot and the playoff winners have the opportunity to advance to additional rounds of Regional and possibly National Championship Tournaments. Season comprises of approximately 20 games, plus tournament.
Seacoast Hockey League: is also a competitive hockey league and incorporates teams from NH and Southern ME. All teams registered in the Seacoast League are bracketed in a year-end tournament, which is always very competitive. Season comprises of approximately 14-20 games, plus tournament.
Back Bay offers LTS, Mini Mite Instructional, Travel Mites, Travel Squirts, Travel Pee Wee, Travel Bantam, Girls 4-14 and Travel Midget Hockey. We will also be hosting recreational Pond Hockey on Saturday mornings beginning this year. All programs are available to both boys and girls.
Back Bay is a complete volunteer organization, your registration fees pay for ice rental, league fees, game officials, pucks, first aid kits, goalie equipment and other incidentals.
All coaches are volunteer positions; however Back Bay strides in evaluating and appointing the best coaching staff to each team. All coaches are required to attend the requisite amount of training as required and are patched by USA Hockey.
At the beginning of each season, a Parent Meeting is held to go over the basic rules of the Association in addition to any team rules or expectations that the coach may have. The meeting will be attended by the immediate player parents or guardians, the coaching staff and, at least, one member of the Board of Directors. This is an open forum so please ask questions.
USA Hockey adopted ADM (American Development Model) approximately 5 years ago, Back Bay also believes in the ADM model and we do our best to incorporate ADM into our practices and coaching philosophy. For more information on ADM, please go to www.usahockey.com under education and training tab.
