BC Hockey has announced that beginning in the 2018-2019 season, it will operate a Minor Midget League for 15 year-old players starting with the 2003 birth year.
The Minor Midget League gives an opportunity for 15 year-old players to develop with other athletes of the same age.
The program will align with the BC Major Midget League (MML). The MML will still allow 15 year- old players should that player wish to try out for an MML team.
“BC Hockey is constantly striving to provide relevant hockey opportunities to players in BC and the Yukon,” said BC Hockey Chief Executive Officer Barry Petrachenko “Our members have identified the fifteen year-old age group as a key piece in our development model and an area that has been underserviced in recent years, and in response we feel this programming sets us on a path to address the current needs of our participants.”
Further details will be provided in early March about the evaluation process and program.
