Slingshot Info & Tryout Schedule


 

BCHL is currently preparing for the launch another season for our "Slingshots" teams which have been running since 2006-2007.  Our “Slingshots” teams are created as an option for players in our Novice, Atom, Peewee, Bantam, Midget age divisions who are interested in advancing their hockey development at a higher competitive level. This program is optional for current league members.

 

On behalf of the Coaches we would like to invite all eligible BCHL players to this year’s tryouts. The BCHL “Slingshots” is a DEVELOPMENT program which means you still play on your designated house league team and participation would be in addition to the BCHL house league program. This is an opportunity to practice one extra time a week and participate in scheduled exhibition games - as Covid rules permit.  We have worked closely with the BCHL house league to minimize conflicts, but ultimately there may be some, and you will need to make every reasonable effort to support your house league team throughout the year (for both games and practices).

 

Each team will carry up to 10 skaters and 1 goalie - and you will stay in that bubble as much as we can with the hopes of having a minimum of 2 teams in each division.  There will be no alternates permitted this year to assist in maintaining those bubbles. We are proposing 2 practices followed by a game against the other team(s) in your age group.  Drills will be selected as age/skill level appropriate and is geared at advancing the skill level.  We have also carefully selected devotionals that will help to build character both on and off the ice.

 

All COVID rules for dressing at home, screening of players prior to every ice time, use of a mask up to the point of putting your helmet on…all apply the same as the house league.

 

Eligibility is as follows:

 

  • Novice players must be born in the years 2012 or 2013 or younger
  • Atom players must be born in the years 2010 or 2011
  • Peewee players must be born in the years 2008 or 2009
  • Bantam players must be born in the years 2006 or 2007
  • Midget players must be born in the years 2003 (limited number), 2004 or 2005.
  • No overage players are permitted in any division. Underage players will be considered based on skill level.
  • Number of teams per division is dependent on the number of players who participate in tryouts, skill level and availability of coaches
