It expanded to Bantam AA in 2018 and Mosquito A/AA/AAA (summer teams) in 2019. This has so far been very successful, with 2 teams making it to the Provincials semis and another winning the Peewee Provincial Championship in 2018, as well as winning several tournaments. Many players, boys and girls, moved on to High Performance programs (AAA, PBL) and represented BC on the National stage.
