With heavy hearts, the Brainerd Amateur Hockey Association board and families extend our deepest sympathy.  Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow. 

On Friday, November 14th we lost a member of our Minnesota Hockey family, Patrick Schoonover. Patrick was a member of the Eastview Bantam AA team participating in the Battle for the Blue Ox hockey tournament in Brainerd.

The Schoonover family, Eastview Bantam AA players, coaches and families and the Eastview community are in our thoughts and prayers. Our hearts go out to all of you during this difficult time.   

As a hockey community know that we are remembering Patrick’s family, friends and teammates and honoring the memory of Patrick. Patrick will remain in our hearts forever.

Brainerd Hockey Mission Statement

The purpose of Brainerd Amateur Hockey Association (BAHA) and the essence of its existence is that participation in an organized hockey program is healthy, educational, and fun. The hockey association, its teams and adult members, therefore, will strive to provide fun for players, improve hockey skills and develop responsibility and self-discipline. The goal of BAHA will always be to create an atmosphere of sportsmanship, self-confidence, and self-pride in hopes of preparing the players not only for the game of hockey, but also to become well-rounded and contributing members of their community.

"The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual." --- Vince Lombardi
