New SafeSport requirements

June 24, 2019 — You may have seen recent emails from USA Hockey describing some of the changes to the SafeSport program for this season. One that we want to highlight is that any player who will be 17 or older by the end of 2019 must complete the online SafeSport training that other adults in the program are required to complete. This is mandated by new laws affecting USA Hockey and the US Center for SafeSport starting this season.

What does this mean? It means that if you were born in 2002 or earlier, you must complete the online Core Center for SafeSport Training course before you can practice, play, or be added to a team roster. Since our practices start in August, we are setting a deadline of July 28 (the date of our pre-season team meeting) for this.

Step 1: If not already done, you and your parent(s) must complete and pay for your USA Hockey player registration at https://membership.usahockey.com.

Step 2: Using your registration confirmation number, register for and complete the SafeSport training as described here: https://www.usahockey.com/trainingregistration.

There is no additional cost for the training beyond your regular USA Hockey registration fees. Plan for it to take 90 - 120 minutes to complete. It does not have to be completed all at once. You can leave and come back later if you don’t have time to finish it in one session.

Again, if you were born in 2002 or earlier you must complete this training before you can practice or play. Thanks for your cooperation. Please do not put this off. We have no leeway in granting exceptions to this new requirement, as it is being enforced at the national level.

2019-20 Registration and Practices

June 20, 2019 — Registration for the 2019–20 season is open!

Please help by using our online registration form to register your player(s) as soon as possible. We will be ordering jerseys and other apparel very soon.

Columbus practices for August and September are already scheduled and on the team calendar. Players are not permitted to drive themselves to Columbus practices, but we will organize carpools.

Attendance at these early practices is mandatory. If you have unavoidable conflicts such as participation in another high school fall sport, please inform us in advance.

We are again fortunate to be able to roster two teams this season. Team placement will be determined based upon player evaluations during the initial practice weeks, so it is important to attend. Both teams will play in the Hoosier League regular season and league tournament. The Blue team will play in the Championship Division and the White team will play in the Commissioner division. The Blue team will additionally enter in the ISHSAA state championship invitational tournament.

All players and parents must also attend our pre-season meeting on Sunday, July 28 at 5:00pm at the Basswood Apartments Clubhouse . All players, please bring your final report card from last school year.

2019-20 Hoosier Wings

May 16, 2019 — The Hoosier Wings are planning a 16UAA and 18UAA Pre-Post Season, National Tournament bound travel team for the upcoming hockey season. The Wings are open to all 9th-12th grade players actively participating on a Hoosier League high school team for the upcoming season. Tryout information and tentative schedule.

Blades Win State Academic Honors

February 23, 2018 — For the first time in program history, the Bloomington Blades have won the Henry G. Schallert Team Academic Award from the Indiana State High School Hockey Association.

Given annually since 2003 to the team with the highest cumulative grade point average, the Henry G. Schallert Team Academic Award is named in honor of the father of Nate Schallert, one of the ISHSHA’s longest serving volunteers. The senior Mr. Schallert was an educator his entire life.

The team collectively achieved a 3.51 GPA, with two-thirds of the team earning a 3.6 or higher. Special recognition goes to Sophomore Ian Knox who leads the team with a GPA of 4.19, and Senior Sam Burris who will graduate with a GPA above 4.0.

The Blades will receive recognition in the official program of the state tournament. A plaque will be given to the captains before our second game of the tournament, 10:30am Saturday, March 3 on the Charles W. “Lefty” Smith Jr. rink at the University of Notre Dame.

2017 All-Stars
