The Junior Prospects Hockey League is pleased to partner with West Vancouver Schools with the addition of the newest member of the JPHL, the West Vancouver Reign. The partnership’s inaugural year will include one male U14 hockey team representing the Vancouver region. Commencing September 2023, student-athletes selected for the U14 West Vancouver Reign will be attending West Vancouver Secondary School and training at Burnaby’s 8-Rinks Scotia Barn.
JPHL Commissioner Richard Nault says, “We are very excited to have West Vancouver Secondary School join the Junior Prospects Hockey League. The school district has been at the forefront for over a decade developing, operating, and supporting many very successful sports programs, including ice hockey. The JPHL was created to deliver the highest standards for our student athletes and their families, which is why West Vancouver Schools are an excellent partner for our league.”
West Vancouver Schools Director of Instruction, Diane Nelson, is thrilled to be personally involved in the educational side of the partnership and says, “We are so pleased to be working with the JPHL, with their dedication to helping student-athletes achieve their goals on and off the ice. Our flexible schedules will allow these young athletes to balance their academic and athletic commitments, providing them with the best opportunity to succeed in both arenas and prepare for their futures.”
West Vancouver Secondary School Principal Steve Rauh added, “We are committed to providing our students with the resources and support they need to excel both on and off the ice and in the classroom. We believe JPHL will be an excellent opportunity for our students to pursue their hockey goals while receiving a first-class education.”
The Hockey Academy is dedicated to the development of elite hockey players and providing them with the skills and training necessary to compete at the next level.
West Vancouver Schools and the Junior Prospects Hockey League are looking forward to a successful partnership and the opportunity to provide student-athletes with the best education and hockey training available.
