The Comets, who went 23-4-3 during the regular season and swept the Vancouver Island Seals during the semifinals, are primed to challenge the defending champion Northern squad. Forward Elexa Pakozdy was the league’s regular season scoring leader, tallying 42 points (23G, 19A) in 30 games. Pakozdy is joined by forwards Cierra Paisley (14G, 10A), Danika Pasqua (11G, 6A), Jessie Sanghe (7G, 10A), Jenna Velji (4G, 13A), and Rielle Wiebe (7G, 8A) in a Comets offense that has been firing on all cylinders. On the blue line, Justine Johnson (6G, 10A) also provides an offensive presence, while Alex Allan and Mackenzie Brown are also a dependable pair. In net, Brooke Vial has been on a hot streak, allowing just two (2) goals in the last five (5) games, with McKenna Unger acting as a solid backup.
 
The Capitals went 21-6-3 during the regular season and defeated the Thompson-Okanagan Lakers 2-1 in a close semifinal series. Forwards Sage Desjardins (17G, 19A) and Marissa Nichol (8G, 18A) have led the charge, with additional offense from rookie Myah Bowal (7G, 8A) and Hunter Mosher (8G, 6A). On the blue line, the Capitals have veteran 1998s Grace Barlow, Victoria Byer, Sydney Jordan, and Casey Norris, along with 1999s Victoria Johnston and Kenna Lloyd. Kelsey Roberts has had a great year in the crease, with a 1.46 Goals Against Average and seven (7) shutouts, while backup Tamara William has posted three (3) shutouts with a 2.39 GAA.

The FMAAA champion will take on the champion of the Alberta Major Midget Female Hockey League (AMMFHL) from April 1 – 3, 2016 in the Pacific Midget Female Regionals for the right to represent the Pacific region at the 2016 ESSO Cup.
 
The FMAAA program consists of six (6) zone-based teams that are spread across the province – the Fraser Valley Rush (Langley), Greater Vancouver Comets (Coquitlam), Kootenay Wild (Nelson), Northern Capitals (Prince George), Thompson-Okanagan Lakers (Vernon), and Vancouver Island Seals (Campbell River). The teams play a 30 game regular season, followed by the playoffs. The FMAAA Champion has the opportunity to compete for the ESSO Cup, Hockey Canada's National Female Midget Championship, which will take place in Weyburn, Saskatchewan from April 19 - 25, 2016.
 
The FMAAA program was initiated in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite female Midget teams. The league has had nearly 100 players move on to post-secondary hockey opportunities.
