Philosophy


Burnaby Minor Hockey Association is a community based non-profit minor hockey association, guided by our volunteer executive board and run primarily by volunteers from our membership.  BMHA is home to almost 800 hockey players from our three year-old Little Weasels to our twenty year-old Juveniles.


PHILOSOPHY
It is the philosophy of Burnaby Minor Hockey Association that all children who wish to learn the skills of hockeky should have the opportunity to do so, within the limitations of available facilities, financial restrictions and available volunteer coaches.  It is also the philosophy of BMHA to provide an environment in which these children can learn hockey skills, play hockey at a level consistent with their aspirations, learn good sportsmanship and develop into young men and women that their parents and community can be proud of.
