BH Blazers Varsity Prep Hockey: Where tomorrow’s hockey stars begin!
The Blazers Varsity Prep Hockey team was founded in 2006 – 2007 with their first victory coming in their first game against the Thunder Bay Queens. The Varsity Prep team has since enjoyed team and individual success with tournament wins being recorded at tournaments such as the Minnesota Thoroughbred, Kyle, Westman, and Saskatoon Tournaments. During the 2008 – 2009 season the Varsity Prep team joined the Junior Women’s Hockey League (JWHL) which is comprised of teams from Boston, Vermont, British Columbia, Colorado, Minneapolis, Washington, Alberta, and New York. In their first season in the league the Blazers won the West Division and finished as league finalists. During this same season the Varsity Prep hockey team recorded their 100th lifetime win in just three seasons.
“The JWHL is THE place to play if you want to get noticed by an NCAA Division 1 School.” ~Lisa Bowes, TSN
Individual Prep student-athletes have also enjoyed success with BH player/alumnae being named to a Team Canada Roster 16 times, and 48 times BH player/alumnae being named to a Team Manitoba Roster. In addition to provincial and national level recognition, in the 4 years of the Prep team’s existence 26 BH Varsity Prep team graduates are playing at the CIS or NCAA level on academic and/or athletic scholarships.
For the 2013-2014 season the Varsity Prep Team got a completely new look and includes players from all across Canada. View the 2013-2014 Blazers Roster.
