Historically families with advanced youth hockey players have had very limited options with regards to choosing their player’s long-term development stream. The Bandits AYHL Travel Team was created to provide families with a significantly better option for their hockey experience.
Bandits Academy Teams are available players born in 2013.
Games are played based on a ‘Showcase’ model. A Showcase features 4 games over a weekend, allowing for much less travel. Each season consists of 24-30 games comprised of both showcases and exhibition games. Teams will play in the Alberta Power League (APL)
