“So far this has been an unbelievable experience to get children from the three communities together, as I have got to watch them grow over the last few years,” Ferretti said. “It is an honour to get to work with the Kitimat coaching staff, to put our different coaching styles together to help mould these kids from competitors to teammates,” Ferretti said.

Five teams will participate in the event: the PG Tigers (Prince George), Blackhawks (Prince George), Royals (Prince George), Whalers (Vanderhoof, Mackenzie and Valemount area) and the North West Sockeyes (Terrace, Kitimat, and Prince Rupert).
