The BC Hockey Male Under 17 High Performance Program is an introduction to International High Performance Hockey, which involves a series of short term camps and competitions just as our national team are exposed to it at a higher level. In addition, the Under 17 program is a pre-cursor to the well established Hockey Canada Program of Excellence, consisting of Canada’s U18, World Junior and Men’s National Teams.
