BC Hockey is accepting applications from Minor Hockey Associations who are interested in hosting a Female Jamboree Tournament in the 2014-2015 season. The jamborees are specialized tournaments aimed at less experienced hockey players and are a great way to promote female hockey.
BC Hockey Female Jamboree Application
BC Hockey will provide a staff resource and/or Female Development Committee member on site to assist in running the event.
All applications will be reviewed by BC Hockey and a site comparison will be conducted before deciding on the 2014-2015 host sites. There will be two (2) intake periods for Jamboree applications. The deadline for host applications will be Friday, August 15, 2014 and Friday, October 31, 2014.
The BC Hockey Female Jamboree is one (1) of the premier events offered to female players aged 5-13. The grass roots development program is geared towards females already playing the game and those starting out. The event creates a non-competitive atmosphere, which allows the participants to have fun and play with other girls with similar abilities and experience from around the province. BC Hockey jamborees stress sportsmanship, fair play, and respect for fellow players, coaches and officials. It is run by BC Hockey and is an initiative of the BC Hockey Female Hockey Development Committee. These jamborees are supported by the Vancouver Canucks Hockey Club and a program of the Canucks Centre for BC Hockey.
