Thirty-nine communities across British Columbia will get to be part of the excitement of the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship thanks to B.C. Hockey and the Road to the World Juniors tour.

Between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30, the provincial member is delivering fun, educational presentations at elementary schools and friendship centres. The presentations include a floorball demonstration (with two sets of floorball equipment donated at each stop) and the delivery of the WJC school program.

“Playing hockey is an excellent way for kids to be active, make friends and learn the value of teamwork,” said Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture. “Our government is proud to support this tour, which will give kids across B.C. a chance to try this great sport at their schools.”

“Our organization is committed to providing an opportunity for all students to enhance their life learning outcomes through hockey experiences,” said Barry Petrachenko, B.C. Hockey chief executive officer and co-chair of the WJC host committee. “The Road to the World Juniors will inspire British Columbians and allow us an opportunity to welcome new participants to hockey, while leaving a lasting impact within the host communities.”

The 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship begins Dec. 26 in Vancouver and Victoria, B.C.
