Congratulations to the YCMS Rivermen Academy players who captured the first ever Jamboree Champiohsip! The team competed against the MEI Eagles, Hatzic Crusaders, and Chilliwack Chiefs in round robin play and won all three games. This matched them up against the Chilliwack Chiefs one more time in the Final Game. The Rivermen were not able to hold on to a 3-1 lead and the game ended in a 3-3 tie which meant a shootout would decide a Champion. Neither team could beat the other goaltender until the Rivermen's Jakob Nielsen was able to snipe
Established in 2015, the Langley Schools Rivermen Academy is entering its 5th year of skill development for players. This program primarily targets students that are attending RE Mountain, Peter Ewart Middle School and Yorkson Creek Middle School.
Students attending REMSS will enter the Academy as a Phys. Ed. class and receive 4 credits. Ice times will take place during school when that class is in session.
Students attending YCMS and PEMS will be on the ice before school begins. Start times will not conflict with minor hockey practice as they will begin at 7:30AM. Students will be transported back to YCMS by School District busses by @9:00AM
