BC Hockey, along with the East Kootenay District, announced that zone programming for the 2017-2018 season will also include Tier One (1) Bantam and Midget teams based out of Kimberley.
The East Kootenay Zone Identification Camp will take place August 18-20, 2017 in Kimberley. The registration link and fee will be available in June from BC Hockey.
East Kootenay joins the North West, Okanagan and Yukon Districts participating in the pilot program aimed at giving opportunities for players to join regional teams. This past season, the Regional Zone Pilot Program was implemented in the Okanagan and was very successful, allowing players in the region the opportunity to participate in Tier One (1) and Tier Two (2) hockey.
The program was developed to allow players to play at the highest level and allows districts to provide regional teams and pull from a greater draw zone.
