As the governing body of amateur hockey for British Columbia and the Yukon Territory, BC Hockey is an organization that relies heavily on volunteers throughout the province. As a volunteer-run organization, BC Hockey is indebted to the individuals who selflessly give their time, skill and support to help promote and foster amateur hockey in BC. They come from all walks of life and are united in the pursuit of providing a fun and rewarding hockey experience for players in our communities.
