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.
