BCHL hosts elite camp

Camp to host players born in 2003 or 2004

The BCHL is excited to announce, together with Elite Hockey Players, the dates and details for the 2018 BCHL Exposure Camp which provides a valuable recruiting platform for elite players born in 2003 and 2004.

There will be two camps upcoming – one in Richmond May 19-21 and one in West Kelowna July 18-20. Based on the success of the inaugural camp held this past July, the BCHL and Elite Hockey Players anticipate more applicants and scouting presence.

“The BCHL Exposure Camp provides talented prospects the ability to showcase their skills directly to BCHL coaches, scouts and management,” said BCHL commissioner John Grisdale. “Prospects will gain valuable insight to the opportunities and benefits available to them while playing in the BCHL.”

New for the upcoming camps is the Elite 40. Pro scouts in attendance will have an unbiased opportunity to identify the top 40 players and the selected athletes will be invited to participate at the Elite 40 game that will take place during the 2018 Bauer BCHL Showcase in September.

The BCHL Showcase is heavily attended by more than 200 scouts including the NCAA and the National Hockey League.

To qualify to participate in a BCHL Exposure Camp, you must meet the following criteria:

1. You are born in 2003 or 2004

2. You are currently playing at the A1, AAA, Canadian Sports School Hockey League, or US Prep School level.

The official website is www.bchlcamp.com.

The BCHL’s website (www.bchl.ca) also has a page linking to this under its EXPOSURE CAMP menu.
