Bantam Prep Division
The Bantam Prep team is comprised of highly competitive and skilled 1st and 2nd year Bantam players. The Canadian Sport School Hockey League refers to the Prep division as the top division and has created teams based on similar philosophies in order to promote competitive and challenging competition. Players in their second year of Bantam view this as an opportunity to compare themselves against like abilities in preparation for the WHL draft. While this is not the focus of the team, it is our responsibility to make sure that each player grows and develops so they are best prepared for the Midget level.
The Bantam Varsity team is comprised of both 1st and 2nd year players similar to the Prep team. The Varsity division is promoted within the Canadian Sport School Hockey League as development alternative to the Prep division, providing elite competition against similar ability. The Varsity division provides a platform to grow and develop while providing opportunity for players to excel in all areas of their game.
The Elite 15 team is comprised of first year Midget players with the purpose of developing their skill set with and against other 15 year old players. It was the Canadian Sport School Hockey League’s intension to create a high performance platform for players to perform on and give opportunity to, without the challenges of facing 16, 17 and in some cases 18 yr old players. This development model has proven itself over the years, creating confidence and allowing for both physical and mental maturation to happen in preparation for either the U18 level or in some cases Jr.
The Female program is new for this fall, the 2016-2017 season. Delta will be the 6th team in the league along side Coeur d’ Alene, Banff, Warner Warriors, OHA and Shawnigan Lake.

The Midget Prep team is considered the top division in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League, as players 15, 16 & 17 years old compete with hopes of pursuing the next level of hockey. The U18 team is designed to best prepare these players for Jr hockey, through game and practice fundamentals, expectations and developing leadership qualities.
