Bill Phillips 2017 Preview

Posted: Dec 6, 2017

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Competition season has officially arrived and our Pre-Juvenile, Juvenile, Pre-Novice, Novice, Junior, Open, and Adult 1 teams are off to Stratford to compete at the 2017 Bill Phillips Memorial Competition.

This competition is especially exciting for Gold Ice as we have 3 brand new teams making debut (Canadian) competitive performances: Pre-Juvenile, Pre-Novice, and Junior.


The Junior team is coming off of a strong showing at the Kalamazoo Kickoff Competition in Michigan last month where they scored very high in a strong field of American teams. This team continues to impress us with their dedication, hard work, and passion for the sport and we are excited to bring a Gold Ice Junior team back this season.
