BC Hockey Zone Program

 

STATS/STANDINGS

 

BC Hockey launched a Zone Program in 2016 - 2017 when it partnered with the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association (OMAHA) to operate a pilot project.  The project expanded in the 2017 - 2018 season with the East Kootenay and Yukon joining with the OMAHA.  Moving into the 2019 - 2020 season, BC Hockey will continue to work with District Associations in the operation of a zone program.

This webpage will provide you with an overview of the Zone Program and the most up-to-date information and will be updated as additional information is confirmed.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact BC Hockey at 250-652-2978 or info@bchockey.net
