Tourism Kelowna has produced a winning bid for Kelowna Minor Hockey Association (KMHA).
BC Hockey announced this week that Kelowna will host the 2014 Western Bantam Championship from April 3-6 at Rutland Arena. KMHA hosted the same tournament in 2006.
“Kelowna has a proven record for running well-organized, successful events and I am confident the host committee will do an amazing job. We look forward to welcoming the top bantam aged players from Western Canada to Kelowna,” President Wilf Liefke said on BC Hockey’s website.
The Western Bantam Championship features the top bantam teams from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and an additional team from the host province.
