Registration is underway for a BC Hockey U14 female identification camp in Williams Lake coming up this September at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
The camp, part of the BC Hockey Female High Performance Program, is held in four districts throughout the province. Williams Lake’s district camp, North Central, runs Sept. 8-9. The cost of the camp is $150. Players from anywhere north of 100 Mile House are eligible to attend.
The purpose of the program is to introduce eligible athletes to high performance hockey focusing on both on- and off-ice aspects of the game. The camp also helps prepare players for the challenges should they advance to U16 and U18 levels.
Kelly Call, female co-ordinator with the Williams Lake Minor Hockey Association, said the camp will be a good opportunity to get evaluated by some top-notch coaches.
“It’s an opportunity to be evaluated to see where you are with other girls in the north,” Call said.
“There is no team being formed, there are no cuts. It’s just more of a chance for the girls from the north to all get together to start the process of the high performance program.”
Players will be exposed to sport science principles in the areas of nutrition, mental training and physical preparation.
“At the completion on Sunday the girls will get a report card on things they were strong at and things they need to improve at,” Call said.
Players born in 1999, 2000 and 2001 are eligible to attend the camp.
