Three (3) BC Hockey districts will participate in a Regional Zone Pilot Program for the 2017-2018 season. North West along with Yukon will join the Okanagan as the districts participating in the pilot program aimed at giving opportunities for players to join regional teams.
BC Hockey will work with each district to facilitate the program which allows players in those regions to try-out for regional teams. North West will have a Bantam team while the Yukon will have both a Bantam and a Midget team. The Okanagan, who are participating in a second straight season, will have teams in both the Bantam and Midget divisions.
This past season, the Regional Zone Pilot Program in the Okanagan has been very successful, allowing players in the region the opportunity to participate in Tier One (1) and Tier Two (2) hockey.
The program was developed to allow players to play at the highest level and allows districts to provide regional teams and pull from a greater draw zone. There were five (5) teams in the Midget Tier One (1) Division and four (4) teams in the Bantam Tier One (1) Division.
Further information on spring camp applications will be provided soon.
