Four local minor hockey products make hockey U-16 camp

Two Kelowna and two West Kelowna minor hockey products have been named to participate in B.C. Hockey's Under-16 provincial hockey camp this summer.

Defencemen Justin Lange and Gen Bryshun of the Kelowna tier 1 Rockets and Michael McEachern and Justin Merrick of the Westside bantam tier 1 Warriors were named to the Okanagan zone team that will play in the U-16 camp this summer.

BC Hockey announced 71 players selected to attend the 2011 Male Under 16 Provincial Camp being held in Penticton, BC from June 30 to July 4.

Attending the Male U16 Provincial Camp is the next step of the U-16 High Performance process for players competing for a spot on Team B.C. Athletes attending this next step of the High Performance Program are considered to be among the top players in this age category in the province.

The 20 players selected to Team BC from the short list will compete at the inaugural Western Branch Challenge from October 28-31, 2011 in Saskatchewan. The host city has not yet been officially determined.
