The OHA U15 Prep Team, based in Penticton, B.C., is proud to be selected to the 2022 John Reid Memorial Tournament. The team, coached by Mike Needham, plays in the CSSHL U15 Prep division, and is currently tied for second place in league standings.
The team is made up four 2008 born and sixteen 2007 born players from British Columbia and Alberta, all attending Penticton High School. The prestigious John Reid event is the third tournament of the season for our group, winning bronze and silver respectively, with hopes of improving on those results in St. Albert!
The Okanagan Hockey Academy is an education-based program focusing on the development of the athlete, in both the classroom and on the ice! The OHA Program provides a platform for our student athletes to achieve excellence in academics, personal growth, and in Hockey.
