OUR MISSION

Helping today’s HSB students thrive!

The recent 50th Anniversary weekend of HSB showed that Billings is more than a school, it’s at the heart of our community. We are a proud bunch, and no matter where we travel in the world, chance meetings and conversations bring that pride to light.

We all know that extra-curricular activities matter. They are the heart and soul of a school, increasing school spirit and student success.

Over the years, decreased funding and increased costs have pushed many sports, cultural, and other activities not directly related to the curriculum, out of reach. Our mission is to make the school’s extra-curricular activities “wish list” a reality.

Donations you make to the Alumni Foundation go DIRECTLY to fund activities and events to enhance student life at HSB. Working closely with the school administration, Governing Board and the New Frontiers School Board, your donation makes a difference to the kids at HSB.

Hockey Alumni

The HSB Hockey Alumni is a not-for-profit organization made up of past players of the Billings Hockey program from 1969 to today. One of our goals is to raise funds for the Billings Hockey Program to make sure that today’s players have the same fantastic experience as the Blazers who skated (and brought home the banners) in years gone by.

We have over 1,000 members – with approximately 200 to 400 supporting the program annually. Our annual Alumni Hockey tournament is one of the most anticipated weekends of the year in the HSB community! We are a proud and tight-knit community; passionate about the tradition that comes with being a part of the Blue Machine family. Go Billings Go!

Basketball Alumni

HSB Basketball Alumni - A longstanding and proud tradition

This year marks the 33rd year of the Howard S. Billings Alumni Basketball tournament.

For over 30 years, the involvement of countless volunteers including HSB staff, Alumni, and community members, has allowed the HSB Basketball Alumni donate over $40,000 to help the basketball program and the school. Our contributions have included the purchase of equipment and team uniforms, funds for glass backboards (costs shared with the school board and the city), tournament entrance fees, and the distribution of scholarships to graduating basketball players of HSB.

This year we donated $2,500 to the HSB basketball program, helping defray the high registration and transportation costs for students.
