BCHL 60th Anniversary

The BCHL’s 60th Anniversary Event is the centrepiece of the league’s overall plans to celebrate its 60th season of existence.

The BCHL has been an integral part of this province’s culture since it began all the way back in 1961 and has grown into one of the most competitive and talent-laden junior hockey leagues in the world, producing high-end hockey players and even better young men who go on to pursue an education at some of the best schools in North America, while playing high-level collegiate hockey.

Come celebrate with us at our three-day event in Penticton, B.C. have a number of initiatives and activities planned that will give our fans, players, staff and sponsors the chance to take a look back and honour our rich hockey history.

All on-ice activities (with the exception of the Top Prospects Game) will be held at the brand-new outdoor ice surface located in downtown Penticton.

Join us January 14th – 16th, 2021 for a full weekend celebrating :
