HOCKEY: Elite players vie for championship cup in Penticton

HOCKEY: Elite players vie for championship cup in Penticton

The Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL) announced today that tickets for the 2018 BDO CSSHL Championships are now on sale.

The event takes place March 9-18, 2018 in Penticton, B.C. and will see champions crowned in all seven CSSHL Divisions.

This marks the fourth consecutive year that the City of Penticton has hosted the event, which has grown from 33 teams and 609 student athletes in 2015 to 68 teams and over 1200 student athletes. The 2017 event generated a $2.89-million economic impact for the City of Penticton, while the 2018 BDO CSSHL Championships is expected to generate over $3.1 million for the local economy.

“The CSSHL is proud to once again partner with Spectra to bring the BDO CSSHL Championships back to Penticton,” said Kevin Goodwin, Chief Operating Officer of the CSSHL. “To see the economic impact that this event brings to the city is extraordinary and it would not be possible without the support from the City of Penticton, Travel Penticton, BDO Canada and the Western Hockey League.”

Canadian Sport School Hockey League was established in 2009 and currently features 19 Hockey Canada Sports Schools and 68 teams across Western Canada and Idaho. The league was designed specifically for elite level student athletes, giving them the opportunity to increase their skills off and on the ice, while also providing them with a high level of competition and exposure. Currently, the CSSHL includes seven different divisions at the Bantam, Midget and Female levels.

Tickets are available at www.valleyfirsttix.com, and in person at the Valley First Box Office at the South Okanagan Events Centre (SOEC).

Tickets are $15 for a day pass, $45 for a division pass and $60 for a full 10-day pass.

The majority of games will take place at the Okanagan Hockey Training Centre, Memorial Arena and South Okanagan Events Centre, along with a small amount of games in Oliver and Summerland.
