CVMHA Novice team hosting tournament March 11-13 in Comox Valley

The Roto Rooter Canadians are one of six Novice hockey teams in the Comox Valley. They are also one of two teams selected to travel and represent the Valley for higher tiered games. These players are turning eight and nine this year and this has been their first experience with a select team.

Their dedicated coaches can’t say enough about this team’s determination. “They are really gelling as a team. Its been exciting to see their progress over the year,” says head coach Richard DeLuca.

The team attended tournaments in Victoria, over the Christmas Break, and Campbell River, in January, where they represented the Comox Valley and Roto Rooter with strong skills and great attitudes.

Being a travelling team has meant games in Port Alberni, Campbell River and Nanaimo over the season. This has brought the team together and given them a taste of the road trips to come in future hockey seasons.

This season comes to a close with the home tournament March 11-13. Roto Rooter invites everyone to come out and cheer for them and all the other Comox Valley Novice teams.

“The Canadians thank their wonderful sponsor Roto Rooter for all their support,” a team spokesperson said.
