Previous certification in the Development coaching stream is an asset. The seminar is integrated with the male U16 Provincial Camp to combine the theory of coaching with the on-ice application of coaching.
The Male Under 16 Provincial Camp is also running this weekend with 70 players competing for a spot on the U16 Team BC short list and ultimately U16 Team BC that will compete in the U16 Western Branch Challenge. The players are being run through off ice testing, on ice skill and system practices and a game on each day of the camp.
