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 an 2007 only age group, interest grew and we anticipate starting the 2018 Spring Season with 2 x 2007, 1 x 2006 team, and 1 x 2008 birth year teams.
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. Occasional sessions Delta Planet Ice, as well as Excellent Ice in Surrey.
The focus of this Program will be on youth skills development, fitness, competitiveness, sportsmanship, and camaraderie. The teams will have the opportunity to practice and play starting in April through the end of May, competing in 2 Lower Mainland Tournaments along with one Travel Tournament. Players will also have the opportunity to play 3 on 3, as supplemental travel tournaments throughout Canada and the USA.
Preparations start in the fall and winter of 2018, with occasional skates and training sessions on a bi-monthly basis in preparation for next year’s season.
