The Qu’Appelle Valley Hockey League is a Canadian Junior 'C' and Senior ice hockey league in the Regina-area of Saskatchewan, Canada, sanctioned by Saskatchewan Hockey Association and Hockey Canada.

History[edit]

QVHL Senior teams have won Saskatchewan Provincial titles five times. Milestone Flyers were 'C' winners in 1985 and 2003. Grenfell Spitfires were Provincial 'B' champions in 1982.

Balgonie Bisons won the Provincial 'A' championship in 2011. Standing Buffalo Bulls were 'A' winners in 2000.

In 2015 four of the remaining Regina Junior C Hockey League teams joined the QVHL. That league also hosts the annual Brewers Cup, the Junior C championship of Western Canada.
