The Burnaby Jr. Islanders
In September of 2017, with support from the New York Islanders as part of their Amateur Youth Development program, the Burnaby Junior Islanders Program was born. For the 2018 Spring Season, we will introduce an AAA 2007 year team, with plans to expand to other age groups in late 2018.
The Burnaby Junior Islanders will be based out of Burnaby, British Columbia, and train primarily out of the Burnaby Winter Club, Planet Ice Coquitlam, Britannia Arena in Vancouver, and Excellent Ice in Surrey, BC.
The focus of this program will be on youth skills development, fitness, competitiveness, sportsmanship, and camaraderie. The teams will have the opportunity to practice and play starting in April through the end of May 2018, competing in 2 Lower Mainland Tournaments, as well as having the opportunity to play in a travel tournament. We will then participate in at least 2 tournaments during the summer.
Preparations have started, and we plan to start to skate and train together on a bi-monthly basis in preparation for next year’s season.
