In 2016, 50 players from the BC and Yukon were selected in the WHL Bantam Draft.

The WHL Bantam Draft is typically held on the first Thursday in May, at which time WHL clubs select players who have graduated from the Bantam age category.

Most of these players competed at the Male U16 BC Cup held April 21-23, 2017 in Salmon Arm. BC Hockey will announce the roster for 60 athletes to attend the Male U16 Provincial Camp being held July 11-16, 2017 in Shawnigan Lake. This is the next step in the Male Program of Excellence which will continue to the Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup being held in Calgary in October.

The BC Hockey Male Program of Excellence, formerly the High Performance Program, was introduced in 1980 with the mandate to systematically identify and train the province's elite-level players for high performance hockey events. The overall objective of the program is to increase the chances of athletes from BC to compete provincially, regionally, nationally and internationally with the ultimate goal being selected to Hockey Canada’s National Junior or National Senior Team.
