The Sport of Ball Hockey in the Province - A Brief History
- Founded in 1974
- Combination of best skills of many sports (ice hockey, basketball, soccer)
- Grown from 20 teams to over 1700 … 400 players to over 30,000
The program's strongest attribute is that it is inexpensive to play and requires few basic skills to enjoy thus transcending all socio-economic barriers, especially in the ethnically diverse Tri Cities.
Compatibility & Reach of the Sport
We believe it is a unique "property" that would allow your company to demonstrate its corporate value, and introduce your product to sport minded people. The reach of Ball Hockey through our programs extends from children as young as four years old to teenagers, as well as their parents and grand-parents. The sport of Ball Hockey is steeped with family values, community involvement and time honored traditions, which is very complimentary to how every business should be perceived in its neighbourhood. Based on the key factors of compatibility and reach, we believe that we could further build on this foundation to meet your group's short and long-term marketing goals.
