BC Hockey has announced that Salmon Arm has been selected as the host site for the 2013 Male Under 16 BC Cup.

The event will take place at the Shaw Centre from April 18 to 21, 2013.

The top 160 male hockey players born in 1998 from B.C. will be attending this prestigious event.

“The Shuswap Recreation Society is proud to have been selected as the hosts for the 2013 Male U16 BC Cup at the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm,” said David Knight, events coordinator for the recreation society. “We are excited to be hosting this wonderful event that will showcase some of the most amazing young talents from this great province of ours.”

Players will be selected to attend the U16 BC Cup based on performance at the U16 region camps. Four region camps are being held in the beginning of April, in which 160 players will be selected to compete. The BC Cup is a jamboree-style tournament so the 160 players are mixed to make eight teams.

The culmination of the U16 program is the opportunity to play on Team BC at the Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup. Twenty players who have completed and excelled in the five steps of the program will be chosen to play on Team BC.

For the first time in the history of the Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup, Team BC captured gold in 2012.
