Calgary, Alta. – BC Tree Fruits is proud to partner with the Western Hockey League to present the BC Tree Fruits Training Day contest, providing one lucky minor hockey team in Western Canada with the opportunity to lace up their skates for a practice with their local WHL Club.

Have you ever wanted to do stickhandling drills with the Kootenay ICE? Perhaps you want to learn to shoot with the pinpoint accuracy of the Lethbridge Hurricanes? Maybe you want to keep attackers at bay like the defence of the Vancouver Giants or you just want to turn aside pucks like your favourite Saskatoon Blades goaltender?

Whatever your skill set, position or interest, you and your minor hockey team have the chance to practice your off-ice and on-ice skills with a WHL Club by entering to win the BC Tree Fruits Training Day contest. The contest remains open from Monday, October 15 through Sunday, December 16, with two simple steps to follow:

  • Get your teammates together and take a picture enjoying some delicious BC Tree Fruits apples. Be sure to show your best apple face.
  • Visit and complete a simple form, upload your photo, and let us know why you and your minor hockey team want to train with a WHL team.

There is no limit to the number of times a contestant may enter. To be considered valid, entries following a contestant’s first entry must come with a unique additional photo.

The winning entry will be selected by random draw under the supervision of BC Tree Fruits and the WHL. There is no purchase necessary to enter or win.
