The Iron Bowl name comes from the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge – the span that separates the two hockey programs in Burnaby and North Vancouver
“A lot of the players on both teams grew up playing heated games against each other,” said Aaron Wilbur, coach of the Vancouver North West Giants. “So, this game is an opportunity to renew the rivalry between the North Shore Winter Club (NSWC) and Burnaby Winter Club (BWC), and spark some healthy competition. It should be a great game!”
“This is a great opportunity for our kids to continue to understand that they can have an impact on others and that their actions can have a positive influence in our society with a great organization like KidSport Burnaby,” said Maco Balkovec, head coach of the BWC Academy team. “This should be a fun event to be a part of.”
Proceeds generated from this event will be donated to KidSport Burnaby who are a partner in the event.
KidSport helps children and youth in Burnaby who would otherwise not be able to participate in sports due to financial barriers. Tickets are $10.
