BC Hockey announced on Thursday, April 18, 2019 that the Minor Hockey Associations (MHA) in the North Island Zone have endorsed the participation of a Bantam AAA team in the BC Hockey Zone Pilot Project for the upcoming 2019 - 2020 season.
An evaluation camp will be held from May 3 - 5, 2019 at the Nanaimo Ice Centre in Nanaimo, BC. Interested participants should register by April 30, 2019.
The North Island joins the Okanagan and Lower Mainland zones that have previously committed to participate in the pilot project next season, and plans are developing for the inclusion of a team from the North Zone as well.
Currently, the Bantam AAA League will include teams from the Lower Mainland (Vancouver North West, Vancouver North East, Greater Vancouver, Fraser Valley and Valley West), and the Okanagan (Kelowna/Kamloops), with possible addition of a team from the North Zone (Prince George).
More information regarding coaching staff and a tentative schedule will be available at a later date.
