Call for Host Bids for 2016 and 2017 Female U18 Invitational Selection Camps
BC Hockey is currently accepting host bids for the 2016 and 2017 Female U18 Invitational Selection Camps, formerly known as the Female U18 BC Cup. The events will be held on May 18-22, 2016 and May 17-21, 2017.
The best 16 and 17 year old female players in the province will compete in a three (3) stage selection process for Team BC which competes annually at the National U18 Championship each November. The Female U18 Invitational Selection Camp brings together the top 80 athletes from across the province to be evaluated against their peers. The top 40 athletes will then be invited to attend the Summer Strength and Conditioning Camp and Provincial Camp. The Female U18 Program is also the first stage of the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence, consisting of Canada’s Under 18, Under 22 and Women’s National Teams.
The event is an excellent opportunity for Minor Hockey Associations, Junior Teams and member partners to showcase their community and raise funds through the hosting of this high profile event.
The deadline to submit a bid to BC Hockey is Wednesday, October 21, 2015.
