BC Hockey announced the schedule and rosters for the 2017 Female U18 Invitational Selection Camp being held at the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena in Lake Cowichan from May 17 – 21, 2017. The players were selected based on their performance with their club teams during the 2016-2017 season.
The camp will feature a very demanding schedule, pushing players through games, practices, off-ice technical training and fitness testing. Players will compete in an elite, challenging environment for a possible invitation to the U18 Provincial Camp, July 13 – 16, 2017 in Shawnigan Lake. Ultimately, players will be selected for Team BC, which will participate in the 2017 Women’s U18 National Championship in Quebec City this fall.
