U16 Team BC

In previous years, our top U16 players have participated in the Red River Cup in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

In 2015, this team is open to players born in 2000 & 2001. The tournament introduces players to elite competition from across the country and serves as an introduction to the recruiting process.

U14 (includes Grade 8, Grade 7 and Grade 6)

We are planning to host a tournament in the summer of 2015 in Kamloops as part of the Legacy Games! Age/Grade categories have yet to be determined but will include an opportunity for all in this age grade category.

In addition, there are plans for our Grade 8 team to return to the Tanoa Bowl in 2015. The opportunities with these teams serve as an illustration of the commitment it takes to be successful and compete at a high level.

Why do the tournaments that Team BC participates in differ from year-to-year?

We are committed to providing these opportunities as we develop players and coaches. Tournaments and competitions are subject to change based on hosting groups and organizations. Sometimes, the host/organizer may change locations, competition levels, or cancel the event altogether the event.

In such cases we will remain committed to finding the best opportunity for our players.
