2019 Western Challenge Cup Host Announcement

West Coast Minor Ball Hockey is pleased to announce that the Surrey, British Columbia has been awarded the 2020 Western Challenge Cup.

About the Western Challenge Cup

Back in 1999 the minor ball hockey associations of BC and Alberta founded the Western Challenge Cup (WCC). As there was no National or Western Championships for minor ball hockey competitors, this tournament would serve as a venue to challenge skilled minor ball hockey players with a chance to compete against other teams throughout BC and Alberta at a higher competitive level. Since the start of the WCC, the tournament has been hosted by Edmonton, Calgary and cities throughout the Lower Mainland. This tournament has grown over the years with a participation expectancy of a minimum of 32 teams each year. The tournament occurs over a 4 day period usually during the middle of July.

After the 2011 WCC tournament in Edmonton there was a vote between all the associations and the result was the reclassification of the competing divisions.

As a result, the age groups eligible to play in the WCC will be as follows commencing with the 2013 season.

  • U11 Division - Players born in 2002 and 2003 ( full calendar year ).
  • May include players born in 2004 if desired.
  • U13 Division - Players born in 2000 and 2001 ( full calendar year ).
  • U15 Division - Players born in 1998 and 1999 ( full calendar year ).
  • U17 Division - Players born in 1996 and 1997 ( full calendar year ).
  • U19 Division - Players born in 1994 and 1995 ( full calendar year ).
