B.C. Hockey announced the schedule and rosters for the 2017 Female U18 Team BC Selection Camp being held at Shawnigan Lake School from July 13-16. Of the 42 athletes invited, four are from the south Okanagan.

Invitation to the selection camp was based on individual performances during the 2017 Female Program of Excellence Identification Camp held in April in Salmon Arm. From Penticton are Okanagan Hockey Academy products Sophie Lalor, Anna MacCara, Jaise Skinner, Summerland is Lyndsy Acheson of the Thompson-Okanagan Lakers.

“We are excited to host BC Hockey’s top U18 female hockey players in Shawnigan Lake,” said Whitney Juszkiewicz, BC Hockey’s Female Program of Excellence co-ordinator in a press release. “They will experience extensive on and off-ice training, team building and seminars focused to inform and benefit the athletes.”

From this camp, 26 players will be invited to the final selection camp where 20 athletes will be chosen to represent Team B.C. at Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Championship being held in Quebec City November 1-5, 2017. At last year’s event, B.C. won the bronze medal in Regina.
