About the Female Program of Excellence (POE)
BC Hockey’s Female Program of Excellence (formerly High Performance Program) was established to identify and train athletes and team personnel for possible participation at Provincial, National and International events. Although the percentage of athletes who actually experience international competition is very small, the program plays a valuable role in delivering a message of the skills, attitude and dedication expected of a elite athlete. In addition, it allows athletes who possess these skills to be identified in a systematic way across our country.
