Vanderhoof to host BC Hockey Championship for the third time

The community will see teams from across the region compete to win the Bantam Tier 4 provincial championship

Vanderhoof will be hosting BC Hockey Championship once again in March this year.

The district will host the Bantam Tier 4 Championship from March 15, until March 19.

Phil Turgeon, co-chair of the event and the team manager, said he is thankful to the community for all the support they have given to local minor hockey teams.

In the past, Vanderhoof has hosted BC Hockey Championships twice, first in 2007 for Pee Wee Tier 4 and then in 2012 for Bantam Tier 4.

More information about the event will be made available soon.

If any community member wishes to help the organizers of the event as a volunteer or sponsor, please contact Phil Turgeon at philt77@telus.net.
