Summer means we are getting closer to another great season!
June 21, 2018
First day of summer means a lot of things: kids are out of school already or very soon (great for the kids, chaos for the adults!); spring hockey has wound down and players are able to take a bit of a break; and TBirds staff are in full planning mode for the 2018-19 season. And next year is going to be awesome!
Over the coming weeks we will be posting information on the skills programs being led by Derek Popke and Mike Todd; the rep tryout process; and the new method Thunderbirds will be using for balancing all of our below Atom and recreational teams...along with a lot more resources and information to continue making vancouvertbirds.ca the one stop shop for our membership.
Summer camps are filling up and we look forward to seeing so many of you on the ice in mid-August. If you haven't signed up yet, be sure to check out what is happening - click here.
We are open for registration for all ages and have a very special promotion happening for players born in 2013 who will be entering the Initiation Minor (Hockey 1) program. They will be able to join the TBird family for the phenomenal rate of $399 for the season - so spread the word to your neighbours and friends and let's be sure we are letting as many Vancouver kids as possible get on the ice.
Summer Camp registration is now open! Click here for more information.
