There is no Year End Banquet this season but the AVMHA Executive will be on FACEBOOK LIVE (and meeting all COVID-19 safety protocols) to make the prize draws in the Cash Raffle at 7:00 pm.  It will be followed by announcements of all our year-end awards.  Be sure to tune in!  Stay Safe!


The AV Multiplex is closed until further notice.

Message to Initiation-Novice players:

Due to our current circumstances we are unable to have our year end banquet for initiation/novice.

(Shai Porter), as team manager of the Novice Major group I would like to thank all of the coaches, volunteers, parents and players for a great season despite all of the hurdles we were given.

I was really hoping to congratulate the players for their awards but will post them on here instead!

BC HOCKEY BULLETIN – ISSUE #: 2020-006 – March 12, 2020

TO: BC Hockey Membership and Participants

FROM: Barry Petrachenko
Chief Executive Officer

SUBJECT: BC Hockey Championships Cancelled and Events Post Postponed

The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada from Tom Renney, Chief Executive Officer, and Scott Smith, President and Chief Operating Officer, on the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“Without question, this an unprecedented period of difficulty for the sports world. The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, fans, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to Hockey Canada.

After much consultation with the Hockey Canada membership, our Chief Medical Officer and public health officials, the Hockey Canada Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities, including our national championships, until further notice, effective immediately.

We recognize the tremendous effort that has been put forth all year by individuals across the country as they participate in Canada’s game. Although it is difficult to process the hockey season ending abruptly, we feel this is the best course of action in order to do our part in keeping our country safe.”


“The BC Hockey Board of Directors support the leadership shown by Hockey Canada to suspend all hockey operations in an attempt to curb to the spread of the COVID-19 virus and will be following the direction to suspend all BC Hockey games and events until further notice.

The health and safety of our players, their families and their communities is our utmost priority. This is a developing situation which we will continue to monitor closely along with Hockey Canada and the appropriate public health authorities. We will provide further information to our membership as soon as it is made available.

We recognize the impact this situation has on our families and participants, and we thank our entire BC Hockey community for their patience and understanding through this difficult time.”

Barry Petrachenko
Chief Executive Officer, BC Hockey
