In 1988, the BBA house league was a group of 30 kids learning to play on Saturday mornings. Under the supervision of former St. Albans programmer, Dave Pim, the hockey league began to expand. By the early nineties, the house league had over 200 kids, the rink had added adult leagues as well. Over the past 25 years, the arena has added a Learn-to-Skate program, hockey camps, adult hockey classes, summer adult leagues, spring youth house league, girls house league, girls hockey skills, Learn-to-Play hockey program, more youth house leagues and another four adult leagues.
Today, the arena runs over 20 programs with over 2000 participants every year. It is the only arena in the city that operates all of its own programming in-house as well as its Snack Bar and Pro Shop. Currently managed by a longtime foreman, Mario Carpino, the arena has continued to expand programming and is one of the busiest rinks in the city. Not bad for an undersized arena, tucked away in a park with no parking lot!
