The BCHL Victoria Grizzlies Junior Hockey Club will be hosting a main camp tryout for the opportunity to play in the British Columbia Spring Hockey League (BCSHL). This League will provide an opportunity to showcase the prospect player’s abilities and talent to our organization and the other teams in the BCHL
The BCSHL Spring League runs through May-July 2020. This League will see competition from other teams across the BCHL in showcase style league play. The BCHL is organizing this league as a way for players to showcase themselves to Junior A scouts, as well as to Junior B, the WHL and NCAA. 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 BCHL atmosphere.
The Grizzlies use this program as a pipeline to scout, evaluate, and sign players to play for The Victoria Grizzlies Junior ‘A’ team. Currently, Our Junior ‘A’ hockey club has 3 players who are U18 Grizzlies Alumni.
Kahlil Fontana 2001
Michael Hoekstra 2002
Connor Eddy 2002
We also have several players from our Spring Programs who have been invited to main camp, affiliated with our team, or have moved onto other Junior ‘A’ programs. Additionally, we have several other 14-16 year old prospects who are in this Spring Program who will eventually play for our Grizzlies Junior A team
The Grizzlies U18 & U16 Spring League program includes the following:
- Being coached by Junior level coaches & the Victoria Grizzlies staff
- Coached to play the Grizzlies Tactical Systems, and learning how to be a Pro Hockey player
- Full length games simulating Junior ‘A’. 9 league games, plus playoffs and exhibition.
- 4 showcase weekends starting in May and ending in early July – please visit www.bcshl.com for showcase dates
- 10-11 hours of development ice, including dryland & video sessions
- *Each player will receive a Grizzlies uniform home/away jersey and socks, pant shells, Grizzlies polo, and warm-up Grizzlies shirt and shorts.
- NCAA educational seminar
- Off-weekends that correspond with province-wide camps
- League Website with full stats, standing, and player profiles
This league’s intention is to create an environment where players of high caliber can develop and experience the type of league the BCHL can offer to athletes with the dream of eventually playing NCAA and/or Pro Hockey. Our league attracts the most NCAA scouts across the CJHL, and draws the most scholarships. The BCSHL is designed to be a stepping stone for players to one-day play in the BCHL.
