The Cohort Cup is coming to Abbotsford in early-October.

The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds U18, U16 and U15 AAA hockey teams will be inviting five other organizations to the Abbotsford Centre for the event, which runs until December.

Other programs participating in the Cohort Cup include: the Valley West Giants, Cariboo Cougars, Greater Vancouver Canadians, Vancouver North East Chiefs and Vancouver North West Hawks.

The U15’s open on Oct. 2, the U16’s begin on Oct. 9 and the U18’s start on Oct. 16.

All games will be played at the Abbotsford Centre and each team will play nine games prior to the round robin playoffs which occur in December. Teams will be separated into two cohort groups and matchups and cohorts will rotate each week.

Fans will not be allowed to watch the games, but Thunderbirds officials did tell The News that arrangements will be made for scouts to attend. Every game will be streamed on pay-per-view for those wanting to watch the action at home.

The Fraser Valley teams are made up of players from Abbotsford, Agassiz, Aldergrove, Chilliwack, Mission and Langley.

The U15’s open week one with games against Valley West on Oct. 2, Cariboo on Oct. 3 and Greater Vancouver on Oct. 4.

The U16’s kick off the tournament against Valley West on Oct. 9, Cariboo on Oct. 10 and Greater Vancouver on Oct. 11.

The U18’s start with Valley West on Oct. 16, Cariboo on Oct. 17 and Greater Vancouver on Oct. 18.
