The Victoria Grizzlies Junior Hockey Club will be hosting tryouts on Feb.27th and 28th for the opportunity to play in the newly formed Junior A Prep Spring 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 two teams, each of a different age group, to participate in the new Spring League:

  • U18 2001-2002 
  • U16 2003-2004 

The Junior A Prep Spring League runs through April-June 2018. 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 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. 15-20 games including 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
  • 11 hours of development ice, including dryland & video sessions
  • Each player will receive a Grizzlies uniform jersey and socks, track suits, and warm-up grizzlies shirt and shorts.
  • League Website with full stats, standings, and player profiles

This Junior Prep Spring 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 Prep Spring League is designed to be a stepping stone for players to one-day play in the Junior hockey.
