Hockey is Canada’s national sport and has enjoyed great popularity at Brentwood with Canadians and our International students. Our ice hockey programme operates in the first and second terms and is open to all students. We are fortunate to be a four-minute bus ride from the local ice rink at Kerry Park which means our teams are able to be on the ice as often as 3 times a week. The school is also equipped with a modern Hockey Training Centre allowing athletes to work on their skating and puck handling skills throughout the year.
We have a number of teams that compete in exhibition games and as part of the local Cowichan Valley High School Hockey League. Highlights of the hockey season include the Ross Cup, the largest high school hockey tournament in BC as well as the Annual Showcase game. The annual Showcase hockey evening allows the entire Brentwood school community to be part of the most widely attended and noisy sporting event of the second term.
