The Bald Eagle is revered as the most majestic of birds. He is a tenacious hunter who soars high and strikes with beauty and grace. In Junior A hockey, the Surrey Eagles live up to that image. With a ferocious bald eagle emblazoned on their uniforms, Surrey has soared all the way to the top of the Junior A Hockey world.
The Eagles are celebrating their 25th season as members of the British Columbia Hockey League. Over the past 24 years, the Eagles have won four league championships, two Doyle Cup Championships, and the most coveted prize in Jr. A hockey, the Royal Bank of Canada Cup. The BCHL is the highest level of hockey a young man can play, while still maintaining eligibility for post secondary scholarships. As well as developing National Hockey League stars such as Brett Hull, Paul Kariya, and former Surrey Eagle Scott Gomez, the BCHL has produced countless players who have received full ride scholarships to Universities and colleges across the United States and Canada. Last year alone, the league sent 100 players along that route. In the past seven seasons, the Eagles have seen more than 75 players get awarded in such a way. Surrey is also in the business of preparing players to move to the Major Junior level if that is their aim. Gomez, Shaone Morrisonn, Greg Black, Lyle Steenbergen and Dan Vandemeer are just some of the prospects the club has helped to promote.
The Eagles believe very strongly in developing their young players both on and off the ice. Dedicated to a solid work ethic and team commitment , club management works tirelessly to ensure Surrey players realize their academic potential and maintain the highest of educational standards in addition to pursuing the advancement of their hockey careers. As well as sending numerous players on to academic scholarships, many former Eagles have gone on to play pro hockey across North America and Europe.
Playing an up-tempo game featuring fast skating, hard hits and precise passing, the Eagles have emerged in recent years as one of the premier junior hockey programs in North America.
