Female Midget AAA Program Releases Team Jerseys and Logos

Friday, May 08, 2015
BC Hockey is proud to release the new logos and uniforms for the Female Midget AAA (FMAAA) program for the 2015-2016 season. BC Hockey will now be responsible for overseeing teams and registering players, and the program is receiving a makeover thanks to an agreement with Easton.
 
The teams are still zone-based, and the new team names and logos are meant to represent the specific region of each team. The six (6) teams are:
 
Team
Region
Fraser Valley Rush
Fraser Valley
Greater Vancouver Comets
Greater Vancouver
Kootenay Wild
Kootenays
Northern Capitals
North
Thompson-Okanagan Lakers
Okanagan
Vancouver Island Seals
Vancouver Island
 
Thanks to the program’s agreement with Easton, the teams will be receiving new uniforms (jerseys, pant shells, and socks), equipment (helmets and gloves), and team apparel.
 
“We are taking bold strides in the development of our female hockey programming, and we wanted to make sure that each team had a fresh new look to reflect this initiative”, said BC Hockey Executive Director Barry Petrachenko.  “In doing so we also wanted to emphasize the uniqueness of each region of the province, and we think these new logos and uniform designs achieve that goal and reflect a major step in taking our program to the next level.”
 
The Fraser Valley Rush is derived from the Fraser River gold rush of the 1800s, a historically significant time for the province of British Columbia. The team will wear blue and gold, the same colours as its predecessors, the Fraser Valley Phantom. The gold represents the gold of the gold rush, while the blue represents the Fraser River.
The Greater Vancouver Comets’ colours of green and blue are borrowed from the City of Vancouver’s flag, as well as the official colours of the Regional District of Metro Vancouver.
The Kootenay Wild’s name is intended to reflect the wilderness of the Kootenays. The logos represent the mountainous terrain in the region.
The Northern Capitals’ name is inspired by Prince George’s nickname as the “Northern Capital” of British Columbia. The team will continue to wear red, black, and white, continuing a long tradition of teams in the region wearing these colours.
The Thompson-Okanagan Lakers draw their name from the region’s numerous lakes, rivers, and other waterways.  Their two (2) shades of blue represent both the shimmering waters and the bright skies of the area.
Finally, the Vancouver Island Seals draw inspiration from coastal regions of the province, especially the waters around Vancouver Island. The teal is inspired by the Pacific Ocean, while the black reflects the sea life of the area.
The Female Midget AAA program also has a new logo, which is intended to be simple, straightforward, and recognizable.
 
Said BC Hockey Officer at Large Len Cuthbert, “This is an exciting time for female hockey in the province. This redesign is the start of a new chapter for the Female Midget AAA program, and it will be exciting to see these teams hit the ice. Each region is represented well, and there is a strong identity for the entire program thanks to the new FMAAA logo.”
 
The Female Midget AAA program was introduced in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite female Midget teams. In its eight (8) years of operation, the program has sent over 100 female players from British Columbia to play at post-secondary institutions in Canada and the United States.
