The Williams Lake Minor Hockey Association will once again play host to the U14/U16 Female BC High Performance Camps.
BC Hockey hosts the camps each year as a means to evaluate players during a weekend of organized, structured hockey where the top athletes from throughout the province will then be invited to an Identification Camp April 12-15, 2018, in Salmon Arm.
The U14/U16 Zone Camps will be held Jan. 5-7, 2018 in the following four B.C. locations:
• Lower Mainland: Richmond (Richmond Olympic Oval)
• Vancouver Island: Victoria (Pearks Arena)
• North: Williams Lake (Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex)
• Okanagan: Sicamous (Sicamous Recreation Centre)
Each camp will consist of a player/parent meeting, three on-ice skill sessions facilitated by certified, elite-level coaches, two strength and conditioning sessions, a Sunday game and evaluations and feedback.
All U14 and U16 athletes will receive a feedback form following the camp.
All athletes attending the Salmon Arm Identification Camp will be evaluated by the Team BC Lead Evaluator and a team of third-party evaluators.
Top level U16 athletes could then be invited to join the BC Hockey U18 program to gain a spot on the journey to Team BC to compete in the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer, AB.
