BCHL is currently preparing for the launch another season for our "Slingshots" teams which have been running since 2006-2007. Our “Slingshots” teams are created as an option for players in our Novice, Atom, Peewee, Bantam, Midget age divisions who are interested in advancing their hockey development at a higher competitive level. This program is optional for current league members.
On behalf of the Coaches we would like to invite all eligible BCHL players to this year’s tryouts. The BCHL “Slingshots” is a DEVELOPMENT program which means you still play on your designated house league team and participation would be in addition to the BCHL house league program. This is an opportunity to practice one extra time a week and participate in scheduled exhibition games - as Covid rules permit. We have worked closely with the BCHL house league to minimize conflicts, but ultimately there may be some, and you will need to make every reasonable effort to support your house league team throughout the year (for both games and practices).
Each team will carry up to 15 skaters and 1 goalie - with the potential of having 2 teams in some divisions. We will be carrying Alternate Players in each division this season. We are proposing 2 practices followed by a game against the other team(s) in your age group with some potential exhibition games if regulations allow. Drills will be selected as age/skill level appropriate and is geared at advancing the skill level. We have also carefully selected devotionals that will help to build character both on and off the ice.
All COVID rules for dressing and screening of players prior to every ice time will be in place, use of a mask up to the point of players putting your helmet on…all apply the same as the house league. Vaccination is not required for those directly involved with on ice facilitation do not require vaccination. All spectators 12+ will require proof of vaccination upon entry to the facility.
Eligibility is as follows:
