Hockey Heat wave going to hit Chase

Hockey in August? The answer is yes as a number of camps and a Minor Hockey School wrap up.

Hockey in August?

The answer is yes as a number of camps and a Minor Hockey School wrap up.

Your Junior Hockey team the Heat are running their main camp from Wednesday. Sept. 2 to Friday the 4th.  Come on down to Art Holding Memorial Arena and watch the young hopefuls vie for a spot on the 23-man roster.

On Saturday, Sept. 5 the North Okanagan Knights come to town for a 7 p.m. exhibition game. The following night, Sunday the 6th, the Sicamous Eagles are at AHMA at 7 p.m.

Then things turn up a notch as the regular season commences Sept. 11 when the Creston Valley Thundercats roll into Chase for a Friday night 7 p.m. special!

The Inaugural 1st Annual Alumni Game on Sept. 19 sees puck drop at 3 o’clock Saturday afternoon.

The old Chase Chiefs take on the old Chase Heat for bragging rights for a year.  Walk down memory lane as Chief Casey “Patty” Patterson stumbles down the ice to shoot at red hot Heat goalie Jake Mattes between the pipes.

This tilt will be full of fun as golden oldies show off their lost skills for a great cause, Chase Minor Hockey. Admission by donation.

At 7 p.m. that night the 2015-16 version of the Heat take on their rivals the Kelowna Chiefs.

It’s a grand day of sports for young and old at Art Holding Memorial Arena. Thrills, chills and laughter – don’t miss a minute!

Captain Okino

The Chase Heat have announced that ’95 defenceman Trevor Okino will be the Team Captain for the 2015-16 season. The Richmond product is entering his third season in the KIJHL. Okino was named Most Sportmanlike Player in the entire league in 2014-15.
