Eagles drop puck on tryouts Monday

Another season of hockey kicks off Monday when the North Island Eagles hockey program begins tryouts for its 2014-15 season.

PORT McNEILL—The ice goes in at Chilton Regional Arena this weekend and another season of hockey kicks off Monday when the North Island Eagles hockey program begins tryouts for its 2014-15 season.

The Eagles hope to fill teams in the midget, bantam and peewee divisions, as well as an atom development program.

Last week, Tri-Port Minor Hockey announced the B.C. Provincial Tier 3 bantam hockey championships will be held on the North Island in March, 2015, with a guaranteed spot for the host team.

Tryouts begin Sept. 8 and continue through Saturday, Sept. 20, with intrasquad scrimmages typically featured at the end of the camp.

Tiering round games will likely begin the following week.

To register or for registration info, contact registrar Lito Pineda at 250-956-5234. To inquire about volunteering in the coming season or for other program information, contact Eagles head coach Andrew Laming at 250-956-2942 or by email at treetech8@hotmail.com.
