Vision Statement: To deliver an unparalleled hockey and life experience to young athletes. To assist players in pursuit of their hockey goals through character, work ethic, and skill development in an environment that promotes learning, accountability and perseverance.

Value Proposition: To provide players of all skill levels a Spring hockey experience built on character, commitment, compete and community with year-round access to high level instruction of individual and team skill development and hockey opportunities through our programs and affiliations.


The BC Lightning Hockey Club began with one team of 1998 born athletes more than 15 years ago and has grown to an association of 17+ teams ranging from 2018-2011 birth years for the 2024 Spring Season.


Our program began as a spring hockey team with a focus on providing elite spring hockey competition and development to players who wanted to take their games to the next level. Over the years we are proud to have become one of the premiere providers of hockey development and competition in the lower mainland of BC. We provide players with an all-round development platform to grow not only their skills but also their love and enjoyment of the game of hockey.


Founded by Tim Preston of Impact Hockey Development, we have seen phenomenal growth over the years because of the care each of our professional coaches takes in developing each player and team. We believe in selecting our teams not only on a player’s skill but more importantly on a player’s character, compete and commitment to becoming the best player they can be. Players from our program have gone on the play in the CSSHL, BCEHL, BCHL, WHL & NHL as well as every level of minor hockey.
