Time is running out – make sure to connect your SportsEngine account to our brand-new website before September 30th. This is your golden opportunity to stay in the loop with all things hockey!
Why is this crucial? Well, the old sites are rapidly nearing their expiration date, and they won't receive any more updates or maintenance. Moreover, this is all about streamlining our communications. Currently, our messages go to lists from both the old AV and BV sites, which leads to redundancy as folks receive multiple copies. By connecting to the new site, you not only stay current but also help us clean up our lists so you'll only receive communications if you choose to. It's a double win!
Here's the simple process to connect your account to the new site:
Need a visual guide for those instructions? We've got you covered - simply scroll down below this article; it's waiting for you right there! Don't let this opportunity slip away – act now to stay in the hockey loop!

We're on the hunt for some superstar volunteers who can help us set up, organize, and run events to not only grow hockey but also ensure it stays as fun as ever for our current players.
We've got incredible opportunities coming up, including the chance to represent AVBHA at local trunk-or-treat events next month on October 28th. This is an amazing way to promote hockey, introduce kids to the sport by inviting them to Try Hockey for Free, which takes place the following Saturday, November 4th - and most importantly, have a blast while doing it!
But here's the deal - we need your help to make it happen!
If you've got the energy, enthusiasm, and a willingness to roll up your sleeves and dive into the world of hockey promotion, we want to hear from you. We're looking for someone with a passion for the game and the charisma to spark excitement in young hearts.
So, are you up for the challenge? Can you step up and become a driving force behind the scenes? If you're nodding your head and saying, "Yes, I'm in!" then please reach out to Ginger Lemke.
Ginger is the one to talk to if you're eager to be a part of this initiative. She's your go-to person for all the details, and she can't wait to chat with you about how we can make this entire hockey season a memorable one for our community.
Don't wait too long! We're excited to have you on board, and together, we'll keep the spirit of hockey alive and thriving.
Big thanks for being a part of the Apple Valley Burnsville Hockey crew. Let's make hockey epic, together!
Catch you on the ice,
Apple Valley Burnsville Hockey Association
