August 10, 2017

The defending CSSHL league champion Burnaby Winter Club E15 Academy team starts the season with a new head coach, Josh Bonar taking the reigns. Bonar is coming from the BWC Midget Prep team, where he was assistant coach under Maco Balkovic since 2014.

“Josh is more than ready to head up his own team,” commented BWC Hockey Director Maco Balcovec.

“He’s been indespensible to our program here at BWC over the past few years, and is a great role model for our young guys.”

The Port Alberni product played two years in the WHL before finishing his junior career in the BCHL putting up 71 points with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in 2003-2004, before heading to Brock University and then on to six years of pro in Europe.

He’ll be joined on the bench by Shaun Lymer, another highly regarded skills instructor, with a similar background and hockey history.

The team competes in an 11 team division, consisting of six BC Teams  – including four Lower Mainland teams (BWC, Delta, West Vancouver and Yale), two Okanagan teams (OHA and Pursuit of Excellence) and one Island team (Pacific Coast) plus three teams from Alberta (Calgary based Edge, and Edmonton based OHA Edmonton and Northern Alberta), and Manitoba based Rink Academy.

BWC E15 league play kicks off September 23 at the Okanagan Events Centre vs Yale.
