Dear Friends of the BCHL and all 16 Member Teams:
I hope by now you have heard the exciting news that the BC Hockey League will hold its first-ever Showcase Event at Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre this September.
The BCHL Showcase will see all 16 teams of the BCHL come together over three days to play two games each – games that will count in points standings. The event starts on Friday, Sept. 7 afternoon and wraps up in the evening of Sunday, Sept. 9.
Scouts from many NHL teams as well as Canadian and NCAA colleges and universities will be on hand to see our players in action.
We are strongly encouraging fans from all teams – as well as friends and relatives of team members – to come out to experience the Showcase, and also take a first-hand look at the other teams that your club will be facing this 2012-13 season.
Chilliwack is laying out the red carpet for you with the City of Chilliwack, Tourism Chilliwack and the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce all encouraging their staff and members to welcome fans and families from all BCHL communities. You can expect the very best of service and friendly smiles wherever you go in Chilliwack over the weekend.
Ticket pricing for this event has been kept exceptionally affordable for families and groups. Ticket options range from single games, to full day passes, to full weekend passes.
Also here on our website under the 'Showcase' menu is the full schedule of games as well as the ticket pricing schedule.
