I'm from B.C. (goalie) and I played up in a few Jr. B/A camps. Never in games but I knew some of the guys, I used to do goalie clinics up in Langley and I was target practice for them during the summer
If you have good conditioning and your stickwork is alright you should be able to keep up with the guys on the ice. Most players in Jr. B played Rep A in Vancouver but from what I could tell, were sort of the "favorites" (guys who could've been on B or good players in House but had moms/dads on the board) or third/fourth liners who had skill but couldn't use the ice time effectively.
If you wanna go past B, you gotta want it more and want it bad. When I played up in camps, a lot of the new guys were way to shy and would get shoved around.
Jr. B's like an upgraded Rep B in terms of reputation and play from what I knew when I was there. That is, it's got a lot more goons and a lot of guys battling to keep the dream alive. It's
nastier than A, but it's a good learning experience and if hockey's something you love, it's a good step up.
