Loads and loads of bottles and plastics were dropped off at the Fort St. James Hockey Arena on Sept. 24 as members of the Minor Hockey Association prepared to sort.

Players along with their families gathered together as bottles arrived in droves in support of another year of hockey in Fort St. James.

“This is our biggest fundraiser of the year,” Fort St. James Hockey Association president, Jeremy Johnson said.

This year, a new initiation program comes into effect all across British Columbia for all minor hockey associations in the province.

The program is aimed at improving player development, focusing on fun rather than on game outcomes and age appropriate training on smaller ice size.

“The results will be noticeable,” Johnson said. “We are very excited about this new program.”

As players and parents sorted, excitement was in the air in anticipation for another fun filled year of hockey.
