BBHC 2020-21 Tryouts and Important Information

The BBHC Board, Hockey Director Steve Martins, and the Broncos coaching staff appreciate your patience during these changing times.   Conditioning skates and tryouts are permissible under the Governor's youth sports guidelines and will proceed as planned.  Registration is required to participate, and we ask all players to register on-line as soon as possible.   Please note that mailings do not have to be provided by August 17, but please send when possible.   

Please see below for the link to register, tryout schedule, season fees, and parent volunteering policy.   

In addition to registering for tryouts on-line, we must ask you to mail certain documents because we are planning our initial parent meeting to be virtual.    We would prefer to have these documents mailed before the season begins, but we do not need them before August 17th.  

  1. Complete and return by mail the required AHAI Form.  Note that this AHAI form must be signed by a doctor and returned via mail to the address below.  We do not need or want a physical exam document – just this signed form.    

  1. Mail a photo copy of your player’s student ID.  (Middle School ID is acceptable).

  1. Mail your volunteer commitment check for $250.   This is separate from the on-line tryout fee.  This $250 will be destroyed immediately if your player is not selected for a team, and if your player is selected, it will be destroyed in the spring after you fulfill your volunteer duties.    


P.O. Box 1142  

Barrington IL 60011 

Required for birth years 2003, 2002 and older before the first tryout:  Remember that if your player was born in 2003 or before, then he must complete SafeSport Training and email a photo of his certificate of completion to Jeanne Richards at   She must receive this before the player touches the ice for the first tryout.  No exceptions!

Broncos Update In Light Of Governor's Announcement on July 29, 2020

Barrington Hockey Families, 

Following today’s announcement of new sports guidelines from the state of Illinois, we wanted to communicate that the Broncos are still committed to making the season the very best (and safest) it can be for everyone involved. 

While the format for hockey may be somewhat different in the near term, many things can change over the next few weeks leading up to the August 15th date mentioned in the state’s communication. The Broncos will continue to look at making adjustments and give continual updates to our fall programming as needed, and as is feasible, considering the rapidly changing environment. As of right now, the state is not allowing competitive games of any kind for the sport of hockey. We will certainly abide by this rule until things, hopefully, change for the better. 

We appreciate everyone’s patience as we navigate through these unprecedented times and make the proper accommodations to ensure everyone’s safety.  We expect AHAI to make a formal announcement as well in the coming days and will communicate its guidance as soon as it is issued.

ALUMNI "SPOTLIGHT" - Anthony Pitti

Anthony Pitti #27 Forward ASU Sun Devils

Former Broncos Varsity forward Anthony Pitti is currently playing hockey for the Arizona State University Sun Devils D2 ACHA team.  Anthony played all four years with the Barrington Broncos Hockey Club.  "It is still unbelievable when I think to myself that I play college hockey. It’s my freshman year here at ASU and I am having the most fun playing hockey here than I ever had. Playing hockey for the Broncos helped me develop further as a player and made it possible for myself to continue on playing after high school".  Good luck to Anthony and the Sun Devils as they compete for a spot in the ACHA 2020 National Championships!
