Education - BC Hockey High School Hockey League
Registration is now open for the 2014 BC High School Hockey League! We anticipate that spots will fill up quickly so teams will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.
The fun and competitive BCHSHL starts in April 2014 and is open to high schools in the Lower Mainland. The league format will consist of a regular season schedule followed by a concluding tournament of champions. The schedule is currently under construction and will be released as the 2014 season approaches.
Please note: All players must fit into all three categories listed below:
Coach(s) must be approved by the school, and must be at each game.
Coach(s) must have Coach Hybrid or Developmental 1 Certification
The first season of the BC High School Hockey League consisted of six (6) teams and grew to twenty (20) teams during the second year. Last year, in its third season, the league expanded even further based on the growing number of interested schools. This year, the BCHSHL is expanding to 30 teams.
The league fee will be determined based on the amount of teams that enter the league. Schools will be contacted after the deadline with the league format and fee amount.
The 2007 BC Hockey Summit produced “Cooperate with the School System to introduce hockey to all students in BC” as one of the most important growth initiative for BC Hockey. One strong recommendation from the Summit groups was; “BC Hockey to become involved in BC School Sports/ High School hockey”
To grow the game of ice hockey by providing a province wide High School league that is separate of the existing Minor Hockey season but which compliments and benefits both the High School and Minor Hockey systems in British Columbia.
