BBD Blueliners



Dear Supporters of High School Hockey,

 

For the ninth year Brookfield, Bethel, and Danbury High Schools will come together and play as one team under the name BBD IceCats. We would like to thank our Athletic Directors, Chip Salvestrini (Danbury), Stephen Baldwin (Brookfield), and Mark Caron (Bethel) for continuing to work together and making this possible! We would also like to thank the Danbury Ice Arena staff for their ongoing support, partnering and customer service. We are glad to call Danbury Ice Arena our home!

 

Last season we qualified for both the State tournament as well as the SCC/SWC Division 3 playoff s where we lost in the final round. Although it was a disappointing loss, the team played hard and showed outstanding sportsmanship. Our student athletes are grateful to have the opportunity to play the sport they love and take nothing for granted. As in previous years, our dedication is not limited to the ice as we work year round fundraising and volunteering in clinics for younger players. Several BBD players donated their me this past spring and summer working at clinics for young upcoming hockey players as well as at a clinic for disabled children, giving back to the community that has provided support for them over the years. We are optimistic that again, this season will offer learning opportunities for our players and managers to grow and sharpen skills which will benefit them and others throughout their high school, college, and business careers.

 

As parents we are very proud of these Brookfield, Bethel, and Danbury students. They work hard on and off the ice all year along with playing a sport that is both physically and mentally demanding; they adhere to the required academic standards in order to participate; they come together from three schools to work towards a common goal, they practice at 5:30 am in the morning with no complaints and truly are a team. Although some people are adverse, to the Co-op teams, we know it as one of the best life experiences our players will ever have. Not only are they allowed to play hockey, they also realize that friends are made regardless of which school they attend. You will also experience that camaraderie in the stands when the fans from all three schools sit together. We are proud that there are no boundaries and you would be hard pressed to figure out which school a player or manager is from because they behave as one team. We are also proud that our players, managers, and students stay focused and always conduct themselves in a professional manner winning with class and losing with dignity. Life lessons like these are priceless.

 

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the many parents, friends, and businesses that have helped the team with advertisements, donations, and support. Without you we would not be able to meet the increasing financial demands that are present each season. Hockey teams operate under a different model than other high school sports because of external costs like ice time, and raising funds is critical, so we thank you for your support.

 

To our students we would like to extend our best wishes for a successful season. The Blueliners’ sole mission is to provide high school students with the opportunity to participate in the sport of ice hockey. This is an investment we know will help these students throughout their lives.

Go IceCats!
