Bid for national junior hockey championship backed by Comox Valley Regional District

The Comox Valley Regional District will send a letter to support a bid to host the 2015 national U-18 female hockey championship.

The regional district will send a letter to the Vancouver Island Sport Tourism Council to support a bid submission to host the 2015 national U-18 female hockey championships. Hockey Canada will select the host city in the spring.

If the bid is successful, two games would be held at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

The CVRD board voted Tuesday to allocate $3,000 for the event in the 2015 financial plan for the recreation grant service.

The board voted to enter into an agreement with the Glacier Kings hockey club for the construction and operation of a storage area and team dressing room at the Sports Centre.

Team owners hope the room can be constructed at the back of Arena 1 for the 2014/15 season. Cost of the addition would be at the club’s expense.

The Junior B team is a member of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League. The club is in its 21st year of play.
