15's and 16's Join The ECEL

By WCR Admin, 05/10/18, 10:00AM MDT


The West Coast Renegades are proud to announce that our U15 and U16 teams have been accepted in the East Coast Elite League (ECEL) for the 2018/19 season. 

The ECEL is a New England based league with a proven track record of progression to higher levels of hockey. Last season alone saw two players in the ECEL commit directly to NCAA D.1 programs, and 5 players drafted in the recent USHL draft. The ECEL is a showcase based league that will see WCR travel to the Boston area for four weekends during the season for league events that are regularly scouted by organizations in the NHL, NCAA D1/D3, Junior and Prep Schools. 

As an organization, we feel that this move will provide our players with invaluable exposure and top level competition needed to further their hockey careers and realize their dreams of playing hockey at the junior, college or professional levels.

In addition to our scheduled league games, the 15's and 16's will continue to play additional games in both tournament and exhibition formats throughout the region. 

If you have any questions regarding this move, please feel free to contact hockey director David Imonti at

See you all at tryouts!
