Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup

The Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup, presented by the WHL, happens every non Canada Winter Games year on the last weekend of October and the first week of November.  Before heading to the Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup, Team BC participates in a pre-stage camp that is geared towards team systems and team building.

Team BC competed at the 2013 Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup and fell short in the final game against Team Alberta to bring home the silver medal.  Defenseman Dante Fabbro (Surrey, BC) and forward Tyson Jost (Kelowna, BC) were named to the 2013 Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup All-Star Team.

For the first time in the history of the Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup, Team BC captured gold in 2012 with a win over Team Alberta in the Championship game.  Team BC finished the tournament with a perfect 4-0 record.  Defenseman Chaz Reddekopp (West Kelowna, BC) and forward Matthew Barzal (Coquitlam, BC) were named to the 2012 Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup All-Star Team.

The Challenge Cup is a round robin format tournament consisting of the four (4) western branches: BC Hockey, Hockey Alberta, Saskatchewan Hockey Association and Hockey Manitoba. The final game is determined based on the round robin standings.

U16 Team BC - Canada Winter Games

The Canada Winter Games is held every four (4) years.  The next winter games will be in 2019, in Red Deer, Alberta.
