The BC Hockey Male High Performance Program was introduced in 1980 with the mandate to systematically identify and train the province’s elite-level players for high performance hockey events. The overall objective of the program is to increase the chances of athletes from BC to compete provincially, regionally, nationally and internationally with the ultimate goal being selected to Hockey Canada’s National Junior or National Senior Team.
