Sunday afternoon marks the start of a week long journey for the Prince Rupert Sea Wolves as the Pee Wee team takes to the ice in their first game of the Provincial Pee Wee Tier 4 Championships in Fernie.

This years Pee Wee Tourney is hosted by the Fernie Minor Hockey Association, which has been putting together the logistics of the week long event for quite a bit of time now.

A look at some of the work required to put on an event like the Pee Wee championships can be found here from the organizers' handbook for the event.

The Sea Wolves open up tournament play Sunday afternoon, followed by the Opening Ceremonies later that evening. The final game of the Tournament comes on Thursday, March 23rd.

In between a full six days of hockey will see the seven participating clubs skating hard towards the Thursday championship.

During the course of the week long tournament  Prince Rupert faces off against teams from the Okanagan, Lower Mainland, Cariboo and Kootenay regions of the province.

Prince Rupert found their way to Fernie following an uncontested zone title, allowing them to make their travel plans for the Kootenays.
