Participants will be placed onto teams with players from across the province at the Female U16 Identification Camp.  During the camp, players will participate in skills sessions, games, seminars and fitness testing. With a focus on skill development, player assessment and education for all participants, this camp will allow players the opportunity to play with other teammates in a short-term selection camp environment. 

Players born in 2000, 2001 and 2002 will be identified throughout the 2016-2017 season by Female POE evaluators and asked to attend the U18 Identification Camp. The event features the top 120 athletes on six (6) jamboree format teams. The camp consists of on and off ice skill sessions, strength and conditioning sessions, team building, fitness testing and game.  The athletes will be evaluated on their performance throughout the week and the top players will advance to the Provincial Camp.

The BC Hockey Female POE exposes players, coaches and officials to short term competition.  Through player development, identification, inclusion, information translation and progression, athletes are prepared for the next stage.
