The Male U16 BC Cup offers the top male players in the BC Hockey High Performance U16 Program the unique experience of competing with the best players in their age group from across the Province. The objective of the Program is to enhance the overall performance of BC athletes, coaches and officials in high level sporting events.
Some notable players that have participated in the Male U16 BC Cup include:
Brent Seabrook – Chicago Blackhawks – Team Greater Vancouver
Brandon McMillan – Anaheim Ducks – Team Fraser River/Delta

The BC Hockey High Performance U16 Program is designed as an introduction to BC Hockey’s High Performance Program, exposing players, coaches and officials to short term competition. The Under 16 Program also acts as a precursor to the BC Hockey High Performance U17 Program, which is used to identify and train players and team personnel for Provincial, Regional and National Teams.
