The First Shift Program
Tuesday, May 02, 2017

Twenty-three (23) BC Hockey Minor Hockey Associations (MHA) will participate in the First Shift Program in 2017-2018, with two (2) additional MHAs on the waiting list. Last year, 12 BC Hockey MHAs participated in the program.

With an emphasis on fun, The First Shift Program allows kids aged 6-10 to easily try hockey for $199, which includes enrollment for a six (6) week, on-ice curriculum and head-to-toe Bauer equipment that each child can keep.  The initiative began in 2014 with four (4) pilot programs in Ontario and Nova Scotia, and has expanded in each of the following seasons.

BC Hockey MHAs hosting The First Shift Program in either the fall or winter are:

100 Mile House

Alberni Valley

Burnaby

Campbell River

Castlegar and District

Cloverdale

Cowichan Valley

Cranbrook

Fernie

Golden District

Hollyburn

Kamloops

Kimberley

Lake Cowichan

Merritt

North Vancouver

Port Moody

Richmond

Richmond Female

Salmon Arm

Sunshine Coast

Victoria Racquet Club

Williams Lake

 

 

Fraser Lake and Houston Minor Hockey Associations are on the waiting list for The First Shift Program.

Following the initial six-week on-ice trial, families will have the opportunity to participate in a program hosted by the MHA. The transition program is intended to provide families a path forward to ensure continued participation in hockey. Details may vary slightly from location to location and program to program, but the parameters of every offering will fall in line with the key principles of The Canadian Tire First Shift.
