U15 (Bantam) and U18 (Midget) High Performance Program
Vancouver Thunderbirds offers more than just a chance to play hockey at a higher level of play for our U15 and U18 rep divisions. We have developed a program that will allow players to focus on improving their overall athleticism as well as their skill as a hockey player.

For the A1 teams, the dryland component is part of the official program and A2 players will have the opportunity to opt-in. We will continue to work with our partners to finalize the 2020/21 season program over the coming weeks.

Included in the rep fee are a coaching fee, additional ice times, tournament allocation ($9500 per team), apparel package (A1), dryland program (A1), and a small miscellaneous amount.
