BC Hockey also administers a number of youth programs throughout the hockey season. Minor recreational programs are programs aimed at minor hockey players that are in addition to their regular teams and practices. Some of these programs are aimed at athletes new to the game, while there are some intended for those already involved in hockey and can promote fun, skill development or both. Some minor recreation events are:

Canucks Centre for BC Hockey

  Chevy Safe & Fun Events   Esso Fun Days   Female Jamborees

Hockey Canada Skills Camps

  Lace ‘Em Up   Penalty Free Challenge    

BC Hockey is a non-profit organization and member of Hockey Canada in charge of governing amateur hockey at all levels in British Columbia and the 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.
