Annual Vancouver Canucks Hockey Female Jamboree
Date: Mid-March each year
Location: Burnaby 8 Rinks
Links: http://canucks.nhl.com/club/page.htm?bcid=423 & http://www.bchockey.net/MinorHockey/FemaleJamboree.aspx
These Jamborees are supported by the Vancouver Canucks Hockey Club and a program of the Canucks Centre for BC Hockey. They emphasize fun and fair play. Players are placed onto teams based on age and ability where each team will compete in three games.
Chevy Safe & Fun Events
The Chevy Safe & Fun Program is aimed at hockey players age 5-8 and their coaches and parents. It is a free event that emphasizes respect and responsibility while teaching basic skills and concepts of the game.
The program consists of a one-day event with both on and off ice activities. Parents are encouraged to attend the jamboree and participate in “A Parent’s Approach” seminar which is conducted by a BC Hockey Course Conductor. In partnership with Hockey Canada, the Chevrolet Safe & Fun Hockey program was developed for parents, minor league players and coaches to be much more than a "how to" course on the fundamentals of hockey. It's also a philosophy that's designed to help today's hockey enthusiasts develop a positive attitude towards healthy competition, co-operative teamwork, fair play and grace under pressure.
With the help of three of hockey's greatest ambassadors - Bobby Orr, Mike Bossy and Cassie Campbell - we're putting these principles back into Canada's game.
Canada’s Program of Excellence National Women’s Under-18 Team
This team meets twice a year, for a summer camp and three-game series, typically against the U.S., in August, and again for the IIHF World Women’s Under-18 Championship in January.
The 2013 IIHF World Women’s Championship is scheduled for March 31-April 9, 2013, subject to final approval by the International Ice Hockey Federation. The Canadian location that wins the bid process will host 21 games over eight days, while benefiting from the economic and cultural impacts of opening its doors to the international women’s hockey community. It will be the final world women’s championship prior to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
Canada has won gold at the IIHF World Women’s Championship nine times (1990, 1992, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004 and 2007). The world championship is not held during Olympic years.
