Organizers in the Cowichan Valley are waiting to hear about their bid to host the 2017 National Aboriginal Hockey Championship.

Bid committee member Gerry Giles says the week-long event would bring 400 athletes to Valley, along with team personnel and family and friends.

She says hosting the tournament is a good fit for the Cowichan Valley.

Giles says they’re expecting the announcement of the host community to come sometime in the next couple of months.
