BC Hockey is a not-for-profit organization and member branch of Hockey Canada in charge of governing amateur hockey at all levels in British Columbia and Yukon Territory. Approximately 150 minor hockey associations, 55,000 players, 4,500 referees, 20,000 official volunteers and countless others make our great game possible here in Pacific Canada.
Founded in 1919 as the British Columbia Amateur Hockey Association, BC Hockey has seen many changes and substantial growth over the years. The organization continues to strive to provide training and resources for volunteers so that they may better serve the amateur hockey community.
BC Hockey knows that for many, hockey is a life-long activity and that fun and positive experiences must be combined with the teachings of skill and technique. Hockey runs deep in our communities. It is our National Game.
The organization is overseen by an Executive Committee composed of 21 elected members and one appointed member (the Executive Director who does not get to vote on issues).
As a volunteer-run organization, BC Hockey is indebted to the individuals who selflessly give their time, skill and support to help promote and foster amateur hockey in BC. Persons interested in volunteering for amateur hockey should contact their local minor hockey association. If you do not know which association governs your area, please contact your District Director. Visit our districts page to determine which district you live in.
