Castlegar puck pack appeals for pals

The CGHL has been around for decades and is ready to hit the ice for another season; they just need you.

The Castlegar Gentleman’s Hockey League is looking to expand to include more players, teams, refs, time keepers and sponsorships for this year’s season.

The league is inviting passionate players that love hockey to participate.

“The more the merrier,” said organizer Bergen Price who was reached by telephone Tuesday, Aug. 13. “We have four teams and are looking to get as many players [aged 17 years and up] as we can in this year.”

The league plays twice a week at the Castlegar Complex and Pioneer Arena.

There’s also a summer league that starts Tuesday, August 27 and runs until Saturday, September 28. The drop-in fees for the summer sessions are $15 per ice time or $90 for a ten-game pack.

Once the regular season is underway, starting in October, it runs right through until March and is a great way to keep the legs in shape over the winter.

This year, Price says there will be a draft held to select players and ensure there is an even playing field amongst the teams.

“The league has been around for probably 30 years; any minor hockey players without a team to play on are also more than welcome to come and join the league,” he said.

The league is also looking for sponsors that could be featured in a weekly article submitted by league representatives.

A follow-up press release noted that the Castlegar Gentleman’s Hockey League understands that community, fun, and exercise are the name of this game.

“We aspire to grow the gentleman’s league into a top class outlet for all hockey players of various skill levels and ages to stay active playing the sport they love,” said the release.
