BC Hockey considering relocating headquarters to Penticton BC Hockey is considering the "exciting" possibility of relocating its head office to a new arena in Penticton, the organization's CEO confirmed Thursday.
"There have been no decisions on anything, but we're certainly open to that discussion and the discussion makes a lot of sense in Penticton," said Barry Petrachenko. Currently headquartered in an office building in coach outlet handbags hobo the Victoria suburb of Saanich, BC Hockey is looking for a new location inside an arena where it would also have access to the ice needed for some of its high performance programs, he explained. The organization recently opened a regional office in Salmon Arm, and it was during the search for that space that it learned the City of Penticton is considering building a new arena. "Should that arise where we could establish an office within a rink coach outlet handbags you can change here and establish a home base for BC Hockey, that's an exciting thought," he said. "It would be a good location, good partnership, it would make good sense for the future of our game."

All that's missing is an arena with office space for 25 full time staff.

"Hockey is something we do well, plus we have a rich hockey history and culture here. To have BC Hockey consider relocating their head office to Penticton and bring their staff and programming is a good thing," he said in an email. "The next steps for all concerned is building a business case, exploring the financial implications, and understanding what contributions might be possible for capital and operating costs. There still needs to be more due diligence and financial analysis/impact before any decision can be considered." BC Hockey is the governing body for the sport in the province. Its members include 130 minor hockey associations, junior and senior teams, 60,000 players, 10,000 coaches and 4,500 referees.
