The Canadian Sport School Hockey League today released the schedule and details surrounding the 2015 CSSHL Championships, which will take place March 12-15, 2015 in Penticton, British Columbia.

The four-day event will be jointly run by the Okanagan Hockey Academy and Global Spectrum Facility Management L.P., with support from the City of Penticton and the Penticton Hospitality Association.

All 33 CSSHL teams will be in Penticton for the event, which will be run out of the South Okanagan Events Centre, OHS Training Centre, Memorial Arena and McLaren Park Arena.

“We are very proud to be bringing the CSSHL Championships to Penticton and to showcase our athletes in such great facilities here within the city,” said CSSHL Chairman and Okanagan Hockey Academy President, Andy Oakes. “The operational partnership between OHA and Global, combined with the support of the City of the Penticton and the Penticton Hospitality Association, will allow us to host a world class championship weekend here in the Penticton.”

Over 600 student-athletes and 100 staff members will be in Penticton for the event, as well as an estimated 1000 family members and scouts, accounting for over an estimated 2,000 hotel rooms throughout the duration of the event.

“We are delighted to be able to bring such a high profile and professionally managed event to Penticton,” said Tim Hodgkinson, Operations Director of the Penticton Hospitality Association. “It provides yet another fantastic opportunity to showcase our city and proves yet again that we are the natural home for premier sporting events. The shoulder season is a key strategic target for the PHA’s own marketing efforts and this is another shining example of how, by working together the whole community benefits.”

Spectators will be able to watch top-end prospects compete over the course of the event, including nine, first-round selections from the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft. In just six short years, the CSSHL has seen an abundance of players move on to the next level, such as current Ottawa Senators forward and 2015 World Junior champion, Curtis Lazar, as well as current Minnesota Wild defenceman, Matt Dumba.

Full event passes cost $30, while one-day passes cost $15. Tickets are available online at www.valleyfirsttix.com, in person at the Valley First Box Office at the SOEC or the Wine Country Visitor Centre. Go to csshl.ca to view the full schedule.

The CSSHL is made up of 11 sports schools across Alberta, British Columbia and Idaho. While the majority of CSSHL players hail from Western Canada, players also come from all over the world to join their respective programs, including across Canada and the United States, as well as Mexico and 16 countries outside of North America.
