FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – With the province opening up gradually, the Northeast B.C. Predators female hockey program is looking to add some new coaches for the 2021-2022 season.

According to a post on Facebook, the Predators are looking for female coaches and trainers for the U13, U15, and U18 teams.

BC Hockey’s Female North Zone Lead, Theresa Philips, says the Northern Female league, created in 2020, is an excellent opportunity for girls who want a future in hockey.

“The Predators have done a phenomenal job, they do fantastic with their fundraising, and they have great coaches. By having this league, they get exposure, they get to have league games, and other people get to see how awesome this is and say, I think I’m going to join,” said Philips

The Northeast Predators female rep tryout camp will be held in August, at a date and location that will be determined later.

British Columbia is currently in step 2 of its reopening plan, which means indoor recreational sports are allowed to travel within the province with a maximum group size of 50 people. This includes trainers, coaches, and managers.

Assuming there are no setbacks, the province could enter step 4 as early as September 7th. In step 4, both indoor and outdoor sports can expect a return to normal competitions and travel.
