The Burnaby Winter Club is pleased to announce that Guido Lamberti –Charles will serve as Head Coach of the Burnaby Winter Club Midget A1 team for the 2014-2015 Season. Guido has an extensive background as a hockey player, coach and developer of players.
The Burnaby Winter Club is excited about the opportunity to grow and develop the Midget program to complement the BWC Hockey Academy teams. The Coach’s initial focus will be on providing a single competitive A1 team but, if the demand warrants it, the program can expand to two” rep” teams. The objective is to continue to develop midget aged hockey players.
MIDGET EVALUATION CAMP

June 16th – 9:00pm – 10:30pm
June 18th – 7:30pm – 9:00pm
June 20th - 7:30pm – 9:00pm

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
All eligible Burnaby residents are invited to experience the development opportunities provided by Guido. Registration for the skates can be made through the office of the General Manager, Len McNeely at email@example.com . The cost for the program is $78.75 which includes GST.
