The Victoria Grizzlies Junior Hockey Club will be hosting tryouts on Feb.25th, and 26th for the opportunity to play in the Junior Showcase Hockey League. This League will provide an opportunity to showcase the prospect player’s abilities and talent to our organization and the other participating Junior hockey teams

The Grizzlies will host three teams, each of a different age group, to participate in the JSHL:

  • U18 2002-2003
  • U16 2004

The Junior Showcase Hockey League runs through April-June 2019. This League will see competition from other Junior hockey affiliated teams in showcase style league play. The intention is that we can localize the top players we are hoping to recruit the following season or later, and see these prospects play in a Junior hockey atmosphere.

You can follow along the teams progress during the spring season on the website: http://www.jshl.ca

The Grizzlies U18, & U16 Spring League program includes the following:

  • Coaching by Junior Level coaches & the Victoria Grizzlies staff; you will gain a deeper understanding of the demands and expectations of a high-performance athlete in Junior hockey (mental, physical, technical and tactical)
  • Full length games. 16 games (this number includes playoffs) run over 4 weekends from April and ending in early June (see schedules below)
  • Showcase weekends will be run across B.C. in 4 different cities
  • 10-11 hours of development ice, including dryland & video sessions
  • Each player will receive a Grizzlies home/away jersey and socks, pant shells, Grizzlies polo, and warm-up shirt and shorts
  • League Website with full stats, standings, and player profiles
  • A Seminar on the BCHL/NCAA hockey journey
  • Off-weekends that correspond with province wide camps
  • All of this for $2100 + GST per player

This Junior Showcase Hockey League’s intention is to create an environment where players of high caliber can develop and experience the type of league that junior hockey can offer to athletes with the dream of eventually playing NCAA and/or Pro Hockey. This Junior Showcase Hockey League is designed to be a stepping stone for players to one-day play in the Junior hockey.
