This year marks the 33rd edition of the Vancouver Island Seniors Classic all-star games – B.C.’s longest-running high-school all-star event.
The games are chock-full of top graduating Grade 12 players as voted by the coaches on the South Island, playing against those from the North Island – the Malahat is the dividing line.
