Team Vice President, Gary Hendricks has been with the team for 10 years. The Bombers have been involved in the WSHL playoffs 12 of the 16 seasons played. The Bombers occupy their own private locker room, broadcast games on the internet, as well as provide “real time” scoring via Pointstreak for all games, and own their own Team Bus, as of the 2012-2013 season. The Bombers practice 3-4 days per week, usually play 2-3 games per weekend, and include such staff members as USA Hockey Certified Coaches, Certified Athletic Trainer, Goaltending Coach, promotions manager, & college eligibility/placement advisor.
