Hello BYHA 

We hope everyone is enjoying summer and spending time with family and friends. Some program updates;

1) Thank you Mike French!

Earlier this year, Mike French completed a two year term as President of the BYHA Board.  We would like to thank Mike for his leadership and celebrate his contributions to our community and programs.  His steady, thoughtful demeanor and leadership style were critical to our program’s success during the pandemic.  Fortunately Mike has agreed to continue serving as a coach and on our board.  On behalf of the entire BYHA Community, a heartfelt thank you to Mike (and Michelle!) for all you’ve done and continue to do for BYHA.

2) New BYHA Leadership

We’re pleased to  announce that Areti Fotis has been elected as the new BYHA board President and Mike Carceo as Vice President.  They’ve both been members of the BYHA board and we’re grateful to them for their willingness to renew their service in these new roles.

3) 2022 - ‘23 Season Start

We’re looking forward to the start of the season in September.  Coaches will be reaching out to their teams in late August/early September.   

4) New Rink Update - November Ballot

Momentum for the New Rink continues to grow. We successfully completed the “100 families for 100K” and in June and surpassed the goal.  More recently, Belmont Savings Bank Foundation announced an intended grant of $1 Million for the new rink. Further, state funding has been secured to cover the current design costs of $250,000 and the expectation is that another $500,000 that Representative Rogers requested and is awaiting Governor Baker’s sign off as part of an Infrastructure Bond Bill which would put us over $2.3 million dollars raised! We're hopeful that there may be more state funds available and with several more campaigns focused on our local businesses, large corporations and charitable foundations and other community stakeholders we can increase this number significantly. 

On July 25th the Select Board voted 3-0 to put the debt exclusion for the rink on the November 8, 2022 ballot and at the same meeting BYHA provided an update.  Please click here to see the current design. The hard work now begins so please let us know if you'd like to help with the November 8th campaign by clicking here and providing us with your contact information to assist with the new rink efforts.

Thanks to all of you who have already responded to and engaged with the campaign.  For the latest updates on the rink and to learn how you can help get involved please go to
