GREEN TAPE

This season we have focused our attention on supporting hockey teams in British Columbia. Across the province, BC Zone teams will be participating. We also offered green tape to all of the hockey associations in the Greater Victoria area.

THE BC ZONE TEAMS AND VICTORIA ASSOCIATIONS WILL GET THEIR TAPE PACKAGES THE WEEK BEFORE OCTOBER 27-28.

In the near future we hope this grassroots program can grow outside of BC and across Canada. By October 2019 we hope to offer green tape packages to hockey teams in a wider region.

ANY TEAM CAN PARTICIPATE IN BUDDY CHECK FOR JESSE.

Outside of the BC Zone teams and Greater Victoria Hockey Associations, our green tape supplies are limited. We encourage other teams to show their support and buy their own rolls of green tape. Please watch this website for an exciting announcement about tape for future events.
