The BC BLACKHAWKS is a development first program dedicated to developing young aspiring hockey players to achieve their ultimate goals in hockey. We are a program that will strive towards winning but not winning at all costs. The teams will compete at the AAA level against other top teams in the area and possibly travel to play out of province. Giving 100% on and off the ice, setting high goals, being a leader and role model, desire, determination,excellence and passion in all that we do through team unity and understanding the importance of family are essential components of our program. Success is not measured by how many wins you have but by your effort on the ice.

A top priority of the BC BLACKHAWKS is our selection of coaches. It is imperative for our program to have knowledgeable and experienced coaches that have a minimum of Junior hockey experience, either playing or coaching. All our coaches are dedicated to teaching and mentoring their athletes to obtain the highest level of hockey performance. Coaches experience range from Junior, NCAA, Pro (AHL, NHL) levels.
