Chris Atchison (Victoria) of the Vancouver Island Seals has been named FMAAA Coach of the Year.

 

The FMAAA program consists of five (5) zone-based teams that are spread across the province – the Fraser Valley Rush, Greater Vancouver Comets, Northern Capitals, Thompson-Okanagan Lakers, and Vancouver Island Seals. The teams play a 32-game regular season schedule, followed by the playoffs.

 

The FMAAA program was initiated in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite female Midget teams. The league has had nearly 100 players move on to post-secondary hockey opportunities.
