Westshore Wolves welcome Sooke

The newest team in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League offers Sooke players free admission

The Westshore Wolves are offering Sooke Minor Hockey Association players free admission to their home games in Bear Mountain Arena in Langford.

“Sooke is the closest association to the Westshore and with the Westshore Wolves, they just want to build something with Sooke,” said Sue McDonald, game day co-ordinator.

“They’re trying to be really community-oriented, and they’re trying to work together with the neighbouring associations.”

The games, which take place every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., usually cost a student $6 for admission.

“All the players from Sooke Minor Hockey will get free entrance to any of the home games, as does Juan de Fuca,” McDonald said.

The Westshore Wolves started up just this year and are the newest addition to the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League.

As a new AHL team, McDonald said the Wolves are working hard to build a presence in the community.

“It’s a brand new team so they’re working hard to give themselves a good name.”
