The Camp Registration Fee per player for the 2016 season is $120.  Fee includes a Team BC Selection Camp practice jersey.  Payment via PAYPAL is now available.  We will also accept cheques or money orders  (payable to BCAAFC) for payment. NO CASH WILL BE ACCEPTED.
As the 2016 NAHC will be hosted in Mississauga, ON., Team BC's flight costs are much higher than past seasons.  Every player registering for the Selection Camp is required to acknowledge the Team BC fee, it will be in the range of  $500-$750 CND (TBD ASAP) and verify that should they be selected to Team BC, they will be prepared to submit their payment of the fee (in form of cheque or money order payable to BCAAFC) before end of day (5PM PST), Sunday, April 10th.
* Selection of Team BC players are made on Sunday, April 10th at the Camp.  It is preferred that players named to Team BC provide the cheque for their Team BC fee on Sunday April 10th directly to Team BC Staff (i.e. come prepared to provide a cheque, so, should you be selected to the team you can pay your fee immediately).
The Team BC fee includes 2016 NAHC registration fee, Team BC apparel, return flight Vancouver to Mississauga, accommodations in Mississauga, ground transportation to/from competition venue, breakfasts and dinners while in Mississauga.  
WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE TEAM FEE?  (i.e. what additional monies may be required if I/my child made Team BC?)
Players need to make their own travel arrangements to get themselves to Vancouver for the team flight to Mississauga and back home from Vancouver upon returning May 8th. The departure flight from Vancouver will be announced soon. Any 'baggage fee' that may be required by the airline is the responsibiilty of the player. Meals needed en route to Mississauga and on the return trip are the responsibility of the athlete (e.g. purchasing a meal for the plane ride).  Players will also need to bring daily lunch money and any spending money they may wish to have.

The Partners Council has established six regions across BC inclusive of the Northwest, Northeast, Interior, Fraser, Vancouver Coastal, and Vancouver Island. This structure brings together community sport, recreation, physical activity and health leaders from within each Region to establish committees, set priorities and create annual plans for advancing sport, recreation and physical activity in their area.
