OVERVIEW

Team BC 15U is a regional program where athletes tryout (end of May/beginning of June) to make an elite team within their Region or “Zone” to train and travel to the Zone Championships or BC Summer Games in July. Once athletes are selected, they will train within their zone for approximately 6 weeks before attending the competition. BC is separated into 8 zones regionally in which athletes will be selected to represent their zone. See zones below.
