BC Hockey is hosting a fun weekend of hockey for female players born from 2005 to 2013 at the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm, BC from September 21 – 23, 2018. The weekend includes a U12/U14 Program of Excellence (POE) Skills Camp, a U9 Jamboree and a Female Coaches Workshop.
Through on-ice skills sessions and off-ice training, players will be introduced to high performance hockey. The athletes will be exposed to sport science principles in the areas of nutrition, mental training and physical preparation.
The camp is open to all female players born from 2005 to 2008. The cost to attend the U12/U14 POE Skills Camp is $199 and players will receive a BC Hockey shirt and jersey.
In a non-competitive atmosphere, participants will have fun playing 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. Players are placed on teams based on age and ability and will participate in skills sessions, team building activities and games.
The jamboree is open to all girls born from 2009 to 2013 and the cost is $135 and players will receive a gift from BC Hockey.
On Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 4:00pm, Delaney Collins, Team BC and 2018 U18 Canadian Women’s National Hockey team head coach and BC Hockey Female POE Coordinator, Whitney Juszkiewicz, will be on hand to chat all about female hockey. Collins will walk through components of creating skill-based practice plans and areas that should be focused at the provincial and national levels.
BC Hockey’s POE was established to identify and train athletes and team personnel for possible participation at provincial, national and international events.
