Female U-16

2020 Spring Selection Camp and May Development Camp CANCELLED, for more information please click here.

The Female Program of Excellence is designed to provide high performance female players with the opportunity to develop advanced skills as well as an introduction to the concepts needed to play at an elite level. Players from the Program of Excellence go on to play at the CIS, NCAA and International level.

The Female U16 Program of Excellence is being redesigned as a development focused program for Female Under 16 athletes in Manitoba. The goal of the program will be to teach our up-and-coming female athletes the skills, concepts and tactics specific to the Female U18 Program of Excellence, ensuring that these athletes are given the proper development time in order to move to the U18 level and beyond. Hockey Manitoba will no longer be selecting a Female U16 Team Manitoba and instead will be focusing on proper skill and player development with a group of 40 athletes over multiple development camps.

  • The program will begin with approximately 102 athletes selected to participate in the Female U-16 POE Spring Selection Camp in April.
