    ** REMINDER **

    Greetings Southwest Ball Hockey Families,   

     As you know our organization is made up of all volunteers and in order to keep our concession stand open we need your help.  At the time of registration it was notated there will be three (3) hours of mandatory volunteer requirement per family. A deposit check in the amount of $100 deposit check will be collected from all families with players in the Minor, Junior or Senior Divisions and will be returned to upon completion of your volunteer hours. The volunteer requirements are to be fulfilled by signing up for (ONE) 3-hour shift, working in our concession stand during the scheduled games for the season.  The season consist of the regular scheduled games and the TBD playoff games.   The deposit check needs to be turned in  before  Sunday 11/10/22.  All players were given a copy of this letter from their coaches at the start of practice so that no special trips would have to be made.  The checks are to be put in the mailbox that is inside the rink to the right of the gate.  It says Concession Drop Box on the mail box.  

    Photo Policy

    Unless notified otherwise, Southwest Ball Hockey (SWBH) participants (including parents and guardians of minor players) consent to SWBH taking and using any images, video, sound or verbal statements (collectively, "Likeness") taken at or obtained at the SWBH hockey rink or any SWBH Event.  This use may be in any print, digital or other medium.  

    Images will not be identified using full names or personal identifying information without written approval from the Player or his/her parent or guardian. 

    SWBH participants who do not wish to have their Likeness used should notify the photographer or contact SWBH Vice President Bryan Pyznarski, in writing at and should include a photograph (to be used for identification purposes only).

    Any participant that fails to notify SWBH in writing of his/her desire not to have his/her Likeness used releases SWBH from any claims involving the use of his/her Likeness.

    Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please contact Bryan Pyznarski with any questions. 

    Southwest Ball Hockey

    Fast action, no checking Southwest Ball Hockey has been providing for children from our neighboring communities since 1971 by Boys Field Hockey, Inc. Boys Field Hockey, Inc., is a non-profit, state chartered corporation totally devoted to the enjoyment of this unique brand of Dek/ball hockey for children ages 5 to 15.

    Southwest Ball Hockey is made up entirely of volunteers with elections held for all positions every March. We urge parents and any concerned adult to get involved. We have positions available such as Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Paid Referees, Fund Raiser Committees, Rules Committees, Rink Maintenance, Team Mother, and Grievance Board.

    We have 2 seasons: Winter and Summer. The Winter season consists of 14-16 games. The season begins in November and ends in April. The summer league starts in July and runs through August. All games are played outside in tennis/gym shoes.

    Usually, two games are played per week per team. All games are played on weekday evenings and Sunday's.  During the games, each player must play a minimum of 1/3 of the game. The players all wear helmets with face guards, shin guards, elbow pads and hockey gloves. In every division, good sportsmanship is encouraged in all our players. Continuing with this theory, there is also a Grievance Board made up of concerned parents to field complaints or concerns from the parents of our players.

    Each division's season ends with the President's Cup Playoffs and the entire winter program ends with an Awards Banquet made up of all players from each division.
