Tri Pen Ice Pee Wee teams were doubly good in Glovertown competing in concurrent provincial championships.

The Tri Pen Ice won the 2019 Pee Wee AAA Female Provincials championships on Sunday, March 24, after shutting out the Central Ice Pak 6-0 in the championship game. The championship team is made up of the top 11 and 12-year-old female players from Burin and Bonavista peninsulas and the Trinity-Conception-Placentia area. The AAA Pee Wee is the entry level for high performance female hockey players in the province.

The Tri Pen Ice Pee Wee AA Female team claimed the inaugural Pee Wee AA crown in Glovertown as well on the same weekend, squeaking out a 2-0 win over the Eastern Ice Breakers. The AA program was introduced this season to assist players preparing for AAA hockey.

The provincial tournament featured a total of seven teams. Four teams were in the AAA category (Ice, Ice Pak, Western Warriors and Eastern Ice Breakers) and three teams competed in the AA event (Ice, Ice Pak and Breakers).
