Friday, July 22, 2011
BC Hockey announced July 22, 2011 the 34 Male Under 16 players shortlisted for potential participation on Team BC at the 2011 Western Branch Challenge being held October 27 – 30, 2011 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
The selected players were evaluated at the 2011 Male U16 Provincial Camp held at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton, BC from June 30 – July 4, 2011. The players will now be evaluated by the coaching staff over the course of the hockey season, and the final roster will be announced in October.
"The coaching staff would like to congratulate all the players that participated in the U16 Provincial Camp,” said Team BC Head Coach Adam Hayduk. “The announcement of those players that earned a spot on the short list brings us one step closer to the 2011 Western Branch Challenge. We look forward to watching these players over the next ten weeks and hope all the players have been working hard in hopes of cracking the final roster."
The BC Hockey High Performance U16 Program is designed as an introduction to BC Hockey’s High Performance Program, exposing players, coaches and officials to short term competition. The Under 16 Program also acts as a precursor to the BC Hockey High Performance U17 Program, which is used to identify and train players and team personnel for Provincial, Regional and National Teams.
