 13-AV Times 500x50

School will soon be out, but local minor hockey players won’t have a lot of spare time on their hands with three tournaments this winter break at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.

Tournament season begins on Saturday with a two-day Novice Hockey Jamboree.

The jamboree features three Alberni Valley novice teams – the Blues, Devils and Sharks – and also welcomes teams from Comox and Oceanside.

The first game of the jamboree is at 8:45 a.m., Saturday in the Weyerhaueser Arena, as is the last game of the weekend, which begins at 4:15 p.m. Saturday.

The next tournament of the winter break features bantam recreational teams competing against each other at the Multiplex.

The tournament is expected to have a field of eight teams, but the out-of-town teams have not yet been announced.

However, both the Alberni Valley Timbermen and Alberni Valley Whalers will be in action over the course of the tournament, which goes from Dec. 28 to 30 at the Multiplex.

The schedule for the tournament has not yet been released. The final tournament of the winter break comes in the new year, as the New Year Classic Bantam Tournament takes place Jan. 3 to 5 and will feature bantam Tier 2, 3, and 4 teams, including the Peewee Tier 3 and Tier 4 Bulldogs teams. The rest of the field is not yet available.
