While not required, BYHA encourages the use of neck guards on BYHA players for additional personal protection equipment to increase the safety of all active players. Neck guards can prevent skate lacerations that has been known to cause severe injuries, including death. Neck guard wear can be purchased at Top Shelf Hockey in Bemidji.
Bemidji Youth Hockey Teamwear is now available in full stock for purchase at Skeeter Stitch. Teamwear is highly encouraged to wear for all kids who are on traveling teams (10U, Squirt, 12U, Pewee, Bantam, 15U). Any other active member within the BYHA Organization may purchase Teamwear as well. Teamwear concept was developed by HDC and adopted by the BYHA to provide a single teamwear outfit (pants, jacket) that all teams will wear at all age levels. This will provide a team centric culture and provide consistency for all teams to wear an approved teamwear so every team wears the same color and design. Embroidery/personalization is available; players may get their last names and/or jersey numbers embroidered on the left thigh of the pant leg or on the hood of the jacket. It is required that no player will get any other language embroidered on the teamwear (example: Squirt B 2022/2023, Bantam AA). Pants and Jacket are available at Skeeter Stitch (3559 Division Street West). Pants are $34.95 + Embroidery + tax and Jackets are $49.95 + Embroidery + tax. Please contact Skeeter Stitch at (218) 751-0675 if you have any questions in regards to the purchase or ordering of Teamwear. Please contact BYHA President Jenn Nelson (218) 766-8252 if you have any other questions related to Teamwear.
