Sending more players on to college hockey every season than any other hockey league in Canada, the BCHL has established itself as a national leader in the development of young student athletes.
Considering today’s NHL features more NCAA alumni than ever before, Junior A hockey on the whole is fast rivaling Major Junior hockey in Canada as a breeding ground for the sport’s most elite and successful players.
Each year, dozens of BCHL alumni suit up for the start of the NHL season.
From the heart of the Kootenays to the shores of Vancouver Island, The BCHL reaches into 16 valuable communities throughout BC and now even deeper into the Pacific Northwest with the introduction of the Wenatchee Wild in Washington State to start the 2015/2016 season.
But more than just hockey, the BCHL encourages and fosters a sense of community, promoting community leadership at all levels of our game.
From our ongoing Five Hole for Food initiatives in support of Food Banks throughout BC each season, to our commitment to education and learning through Score With Reading, we take pride in the role we play in strengthening our communities from the ground up.
With a rich, grassroots history that spans over half a century, the BCHL continues to enjoy a loyal and faithful following; fans eager to support their hometown teams!
