Seven hockey players from Surrey will be in Salmon Arm this month for BC Cup tournaments.
Three players will be on the ice this weekend at the under-16 male event.
Following four regional camps staged earlier this month throughout the province, 160 players were chosen to participate in the BC Cup. Part of BC Hockey’s high performance program, the event features eight teams in a round robin tournament.
Following the tournament, roughly 40 players will be selected to attend the under-16 provincial camp July 9-13 in Nanaimo.
Playing in Salmon Arm will be Parm Dhaliwal and Nicholas Wilson from the Surrey Minor Hockey Association, and Michael Rasmussen of the Semiahmoo Minor Hockey Association. All three players are forwards.
Four local female players will travel to Salmon Arm for the under-18 BC Cup April 23-27.
Female players selected include goaltender Stephanie Hogg, defenders Ashley Long and Abigail Malo, and forward Sarah Merx.
The top players will be selected to the Team BC provincial camp May 16-19 in Lake Cowichan.
