Burnaby Winter Club Steelers Crowned Champions!
Friday, April 04, 2008

The inaugural season of the BC Hockey Female Midget Zone AAA program wrapped up successfully on March 20 with the Burnaby Winter Club Steelers taking the gold medal.  The championship played out during a four day round robin tournament hosted by BC Hockey and the Fraser Valley Phantom.
BC Hockey Coordinator of Female Player Development Nancy Wilson and Officer Randy Henderson present the Championship banner to the Steelers following the gold medal game.

The Steelers finished the Championship with a perfect 4-0 record, facing off against the Prince George Cougars in the final.  The Cougars earned a spot in the Championship game by defeating the Vancouver Fusion 5-4 and Fraser Valley Phantom 4-1 in round robin play.   The Steelers bested the Cougars in a round robin game and 5-1 in the gold medal game.

The Steelers now move on to vie for the Western Canadian Midget Female Shield in St. Albert, just outside of Edmonton, Alberta, April 2-6. They will square off against the champions of the Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta branches of Hockey Canada, as well as the host St. Albert team.

The Female Midget Zone AAA program was established in June 2007 by the BC Hockey membership, with the mandate to promote the development of top level female hockey players in the province.  In keeping with the principles of the organization’s Long Term Athlete Development Model, the program allows top caliber players to register on teams with larger draw zones than those in place for local minor hockey associations.  BC Hockey has worked closely with 2010 Legacies Now, the UBC Thunderbirds Female Hockey program and all BC Hockey member associations in striving to develop the female game, and the Midget Zone AAA program is the latest development in those efforts.

“The first season was a huge stepping stone for our programming,” stated BC Hockey Officer Randy Henderson.  “We have worked hard to not only get the program off the ground, but to lay the foundation for even greater success in years to come.  I think that the quality of play throughout this season and at our championship event displayed that we are indeed headed in the right direction.”
