What began as a four-team league back in 1996 in White Rock has grown into a 28-team league which has expanded into Langley.
And the White Rock Senior Hockey League hopes to get even bigger.
As the puck gets ready to drop on the league’s 17th season, they are still accepting players for its Gold, Silver and Bronze divisions.
The league was founded on the principals of fair play and places a strong emphasis on sportsmanship.
“In a way, it more resembles a gentleman’s club than a rec hockey league,” said Brian Brown, the league’s manager.
“All of our 28 teams have brought into our sportsmanship philosophy.
“This has allowed us to create an atmosphere which caters to having fun, a lot of fun like when we first started playing the game.”
Cost of the league is $575, which includes a jersey and socks. Teams play a 21-game season and a year-end tournament.
