Exciting Announcements for the 2016-2017 Hockey Season

Hello Thunder Families!

Our new team of board members has been working diligently on several changes for the upcoming season. We are very excited to be working with some great partners to update the image of BYHI.

1. Logo Change- In our efforts to partner more with the USHL Thunder team, we have decided to shift our colors scheme and logo to match theirs. Over the summer, you will see our messaging shift to the navy and green colors, as well as the logo:


2. Jerseys for Next Season- With the changes listed above, we will need to update our jerseys. Therefore, we will be ordering jerseys that match the USHL Thunder team (may have some slight variations). We believe that this change will improve our brand/image in order to increase awareness of youth hockey, invigorate our players with a new look, and better align our organization with the USHL Thunder moving forward. We recognize that this will be an additional cost that you were not planning for this year. Because of that, our fundraising team is working diligently to raise money over the summer to help offset the cost of jerseys for this upcoming season. Hold onto your current jerseys, however, because we will likely need them for the beginning of the season until our new jerseys come in.

3. Updated Website- As of May 5th, when you go to www.bloomingtonyouthhockey.com you will see a completely different look. We have partnered with Sports Ngin for management of our website. This change will allow us to do many more things through our website that will improve our communication with all of you. You WILL need to re-register on the new website, however. Once that change happens, we post a message with instructions. Remember, that if you do not re-register in the new website, you will not receive any of our messaging about upcoming events. In addition, you can contact any one of us and we will help you if you have any trouble.

That's all for now. However, stay tuned for open registration for Summer Conditioning Camps, as well as some great fundraising events over the summer.

Go Thunder!!!
