midget tyees prep program

May 8, 2019


1.    Background



Campbell River Minor Hockey Executive wants to rebuild the Midget Rep Program to be the Flagship of our Association. 

Presently the trend is for competitive players to relocate to other communities to participate in hockey programs or academies. These programs not only separate players from their families but are also expensive. The motivation to do this is the belief these programs will provide better exposure and development opportunities for players.    

“We had our kids to raise them” - Dennis Bellevance CRMHA Lifetime Member

CRMHA believes we can provide high quality player development opportunities at reasonable costs whilst keeping our players at home with their families.


2.    Program Scope



Stay home to play hockey; Develop the person and the hockey player.
