Applications for the female under 14 and under 16 high performance zone camps are now available on the BC Hockey website.
Five combined U14 and U16 camps will be held around the province in January of 2016, including one in Williams Lake from Jan. 8-10.
U14 zone camps are open to players born in 2003 and 2004, while U16 camps are open to players born in 2001 and 2002.
The camps will consist of fitness testing, a parent presentation, practices, games and player evaluation.
Based on players’ performance at the zone camp, jamboree-style teams will be formed for the Female U16 Provincial Identification Camp in April of 2016.
Forty players (four goaltenders, 12 defencemen and 24 forwards) will be selected from the Lower Mainland camp, while 20 additional players (two goaltenders, six defencemen and 12 forwards) will be chosen from the other four zone camps.
The high performance program was established to identify and train athletes and team personnel for possible participation at provincial, national and international events.
The U16 program is BC Hockey’s first stage in the Female High Performance Program where player evaluation and team selection takes place.
