Saanichton, BC – BC Hockey’s Program of Excellence (POE) is proud to announce that registration is now open for the Male U15 and U16 Regional Camps for the 2022-23 season.
BC Hockey has decided, for the sake of flexibility, to hold the Regional Camps on a variety of dates spanning across two weeks to give all interested athletes the opportunity to attend a camp. Athletes may attend any one of the camps and are not bound to attend the camp closest to their primary residence.
Each camp listed below will operate a U15 (2008-born-players) and U16 (2007-born-players) age category. Athletes will only compete against and be evaluated at their appropriate age category.
Players will need to choose one of the following five camps:
· March 25-27, 2022 – Vancouver, B.C. (UBC)
· March 28-30, 2022 - Penticton B.C. (SOEC / OHTC)
· April 1-3, 2022 – Vancouver, B.C. (Planet Ice Delta)
· April 1-3, 2022 – Victoria, B.C. (The Q Centre)
· April 1-3, 2022 – Prince George, B.C. (Elksentre Arena)
Each athlete attending the Regional Camps will receive one on-ice skill development session and will compete in multiple games. Full day-to-day schedules will be made available closer to the event dates.
From these camps, 160 athletes will be chosen to move onto the next stage of the Program of Excellence.
· U15 will move to the Provincial Tournament (May 12-15, 2022 – Penticton, B.C.)
· U16 will move on to BC Cup (April 21-24, 2022, Salmon Arm, B.C.)
The final U16 roster will compete as the B.C. representatives at the Canada Winter Games on Prince Edward Island scheduled for February 18 – March 5, 2023.
