Team Pacific is made up of players from both British Columbia and Alberta who were born in 1993.  This represents the first stage in Hockey Canada's Program of Excellence.  The 11 players selected from BC will be identified, evaluated, and trained through BC Hockey’s Under 17 High Performance Program, which acts as the province's talent identification and training program for player representation on Canada's national teams.

The World Under 17 Hockey Challenge is the unofficial World Championship for this age level and the first stage for Hockey Canada to identify players for the National Under 18 Team and the World Junior Team.  In addition to the five Canadian teams (Pacific, Western, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic) there will be five international teams from USA, Finland, Russia, Sweden, and the Czech Republic.
