Some local students will be finding out more about the fun of playing hockey.
The BC Hockey Road To The World Junior Championship will be stopping at Okanagan Landing school in Vernon and Highland Park in Armstrong Oct. 22, and to Bastion School in Salmon Arm Oct. 24.
BC Hockey participants will be demonstrating basic hockey skills with the floorball equipment used being donated to the school.
“To help with the presentation, local junior and midget-aged minor hockey players wil help demonstrate and teach the kids stickhandling, passing and shooting,” says Stacie Couch, with BC Hockey Communications.
The provincial tour is being used to generate excitement for the 2019 World Junior Championships being held in Vancouver and Victoria.
“The Road to the World Juniors will inspire British Columbians and allow us an opportunity to welcome new participants to hockey, while leaving a lasting impact within the host communities,” says Barry Petrachenko, CEO of BC Hockey.
