BC Hockey has announced the 60 players selected for the male U16 provincial camp, which will be held in Shawnigan Lake, B.C.

The players were invited to attend the camp based on their performance at the U16 BC Cup held in Salmon Arm on April 17-21. Team BC is the defending champion of the Western Hockey League (WHL) Cup, which features male U16 teams from Alberta, B.C., Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

The camp will run from July 29 to August 3 and includes on and off-ice activities, introducing the Program of Excellence (POE) athletes to the most up-to-date information and concepts as they relate to both national and international levels of hockey.

The BC Hockey Male POE was introduced in 1980 with the mandate to systematically identify and train the province’s elite-level players for high-performance hockey events. The program started in the 1980s with the overall objective to increase the chances of athletes from B.C. to compete provincially, regionally, nationally and internationally with the ultimate goal being selected to Hockey Canada’s National Junior or National Senior Team.
