Juvenile team makes return to Salmon Arm

For the first time in years, Salmon Arm Minor Hockey Association will attempt to ice a Juvenile recreation team

For the first time in years, Salmon Arm Minor Hockey Association will attempt to ice a Juvenile recreation team in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association.

Since overage midget players will not be allowed to participate in the Midget Recreation Superleague as of this year, interested players between the ages of 18 and 20 have an option for signing up to play juvenile hockey.

Salmon Arm has an illustrious history in juvenile hockey as they brought home the provincial championships back in the early ’70s.

First practise is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 10. Players must bring registration forms and fees prior to first skate on Sept. 10. Four other teams in the Okanagan might join this league.

“I am all for finding this age group a place to continue playing hockey,” states Kim Dodge, one of the team’s organizers.

There is a possibility that four other teams in the Okanagan will join this league.

Long-time veteran minor hockey coach Mark Sandau has agreed to coach the team.

For more information, interested players can contact Betty Turko at 250-253-8163, Kim Dodge at 250-832-7626 or the minor hockey office at 250-832-0095.
