Female Midget AAA
The Female Midget AAA (FMAAA) program consists of five (5) zone-based teams that are spread across the province. The teams play a 32 game regular season, followed by the playoffs.
The FMAAA Champion has the opportunity to compete for the ESSO Cup, Hockey Canada’s National Female Midget Championship.
The Female Midget AAA program was initiated in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite Female Midget teams.
Bantam/Midget AA Zone
BC Hockey launched a Zone Program in 2016 - 2017 when it partnered with the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association (OMAHA) to operate a pilot project. The project expanded in the 2017 - 2018 season with the East Kootenay and Yukon joining with the OMAHA. Moving into the 2019 - 2020 season, BC Hockey will continue to work with District Associations in the operation of a zone program.
This webpage will provide you with an overview of the Zone Program and the most up-to-date information and will be updated as additional information is confirmed.

BC High School Hockey League
The 2007 BC Hockey Summit produced “Cooperate with the School System" to introduce hockey to all students in BC as one of the most important growth initiatives for BC Hockey. One strong recommendation from the Summit groups was for “BC Hockey to become involved in BC School Sports/ High School hockey.”
