Greater Vernon Minor Hockey Association gearing up for season with summer camp

Minor hockey is back!

Minor hockey is back in action in Vernon.

New director of hockey operations Sam Mowat says the Greater Vernon Minor Hockey Association is welcoming back players.

Mowat said in a press release he "understands that now, more than ever, it is important that hockey families in the community feel confident that they are signing up for a reliable program.

Given last year's COVID-19 driven interruptions, he said there may still be some parents who are waiting to be sure there will be full season.

"Everyone in the Vernon area should know that GVMHA is 100% preparing to go back to a normal play and spectating structure," Mowat said in anticipation of a positive Step 4 provincial reopening announcement on Sept. 7.

Mowat said he is excited about what is already happening to get ready for the season.

A new Vernon Vipers/GVMHA summer camp is running in early August, and fall registrations are flowing in. The calibre of coaching applications is very promising, he added.

"It may have been 45 C outside last week and hockey might have been the furthest thing from your mind, but Greater Vernon Minor Hockey Association is full steam ahead completing plans for an awesome return to hockey this September. Minor hockey is back!" he said.
