THE BURNABY JUNIOR ISLANDERS
With support from the New York Islanders as part of their Amateur Hockey Development Program, the Burnaby Junior Islanders Program was officially launched in August of 2017.
Originally conceived to be a 2007 only age group, interest grew and in just over 2 years we have expanded to 9 teams, covering birth years from 2006 – 2010.
The Burnaby Junior Islanders is based out of Burnaby, British Columbia. We train primarily out of Burnaby Winter Club, Planet Ice Coquitlam, Burnaby 8 Rinks and Catalyst Kinetics in Burnaby – with occasional sessions held at Delta Planet Ice.
The Burnaby Junior Islanders will be based out of Burnaby, British Columbia, and train primarily out of Burnaby Winter Club, Planet Ice Coquitlam, Burnaby 8 Rinks and Catalyst Kinetics in Burnaby – with occasional sessions held at Delta Planet Ice.
The CORE focus of this program will be on youth skills DEVELOPMENT, fitness, competitiveness, sportsmanship, and camaraderie. The Tournament teams will have the opportunity to practice and play starting in April through the end of May, competing in 3 Lower Mainland tournaments, depending on the wishes of each team’s coaches. Players will also have the opportunity to play 3 on 3, and supplemental travel tournaments throughout Canada and the USA as opportunities arise.
The Development Teams will have the exact same curriculum and the same coaches. The only difference is the cost, the need for gear, and no tournaments. It all about development!
Preparations started in the winter of 2019, with occasional skates and training sessions happening periodically preparation for the 2020 Spring season.
