Bid Is In For 2021 Junior A Hockey Championship

The bid is in, and now they wait.

Salmon Arm is officially on the list for the 2021 Junior A Hockey Championship.

Brooks Christensen speaks on behalf of the Shuswap Sports Society, saying "I think it's within a week we find out whether we're going to go to present, or they're coming here to do a site-view, or we'll be doing it via Skype. So, we're kinda waiting to see what the procedure is exactly - I know they've had a couple of other bids submitted within our league. We're hoping to have some positive news coming within the next week."

He says that the local support has been encouraging "It's been awesome to see the community really come together, and want something as bad as this great event. Hopefully we can be successful with it and bring a lot of tourism to Salmon Arm and have a successful event in 2021."

Penticton, Nanaimo, and Trail have also put in bids.

Chilliwack was the last B.C city to host, winning it all last season.
