Support Nanaimo Clippers Hockey

Click image to view Clippers website for more information

The Nanaimo Clippers have been a thread in the fabric of Nanaimo for 45 years.  For the past 11 years, a group of business owners and dedicated hockey enthusiasts from other cities have funded the Clippers which enabled the team to stay in Nanaimo.  The prospect of a WHL team and the uncertainty created by the recent events center debate forced the owners to look for a facility to play elsewhere.  They were successful and another Vancouver Island community offered to purchase the team.  The prospect of losing our Clippers galvanized our community and, thanks to efforts by our staff, some major contributors from our business community and the cooperation and assistance of the current ownership group, we have been successful in creating the Clippers Hockey Society with the intent of purchasing the team and raising funds towards the operations of the team.

To create a community owned team, the citizens of Nanaimo and our broader community need to become members of the society with a donation to the Clippers Hockey Society.  You will receive a membership certificate and Clippers Hockey Society pin.  Your donation will fund the purchase of your team and the ongoing operations of your team.  You can donate online at nanaimoclippers.com, by phone at 250-751-0593 or at our office upstairs at the Frank Crane Arena from 1 pm to 5 pm, Monday to Friday.
