Program of Excellence Male Regional Camps Open for Registration

For Immediate Release

February 28, 2022

Saanichton, BC – BC Hockey’s Program of Excellence (POE) is proud to announce that registration is now open for the Male U15 and U16 Regional Camps for the 2022-23 season.

BC Hockey has decided, for the sake of flexibility, to hold the Regional Camps on a variety of dates spanning across two weeks to give all interested athletes the opportunity to attend a camp. Athletes may attend any one of the camps and are not bound to attend the camp closest to their primary residence.

Each camp listed below will operate a U15 (2008-born-players) and U16 (2007-born-players) age category. Athletes will only compete against and be evaluated at their appropriate age category.

Players will need to choose one of the following five camps:

  • March 25-27, 2022 – Vancouver, B.C. (UBC)
  • March 28-30, 2022 - Penticton B.C. (SOEC / OHTC)
  • April 1-3, 2022 – Vancouver, B.C. (Planet Ice Delta)
  • April 1-3, 2022 – Victoria, B.C. (The Q Centre)
  • April 1-3, 2022 – Prince George, B.C. (Elksentre Arena)

To register for one of these camps, click HERE for U15 registration, and HERE for U16 registration.

Each athlete attending the Regional Camps will receive one on-ice skill development session and will compete in multiple games. Full day-to-day schedules will be made available closer to the event dates. 

From these camps, 160 athletes will be chosen to move onto the next stage of the Program of Excellence. 

  • U15 will move to the Provincial Tournament (May 12-15, 2022 – Penticton, B.C.)
  • U16 will move on to BC Cup (April 21-24, 2022 – Salmon Arm, B.C.)

The final U16 roster will compete as the B.C. representatives at the Canada Winter Games on Prince Edward Island scheduled for February 18 – March 5, 2023.
