BC Major Midget League

The BC Major Midget League beats all others for 15, 16 and 17 year olds within the province. Watch the video below and see the info lower in this page for the team in your zone.

Created in 2004 and growing ever since, the BC Major Midget League has become a recruiting haven for BCHL and WHL teams (and for the Western Hockey League Draft) on the West Coast.

Players wishing to tryout for a team should know that the province is divided up into “zones” and that each player can only tryout in the zone for his region. (Zones are listed below.)

BC Midget AAA

BC Midget AAA hockey is an excellent way for players to get noticed by junior clubs. It is also a viable and growing alternative to British Columbia’s highly developed Junior B leagues (VIJHL, PJHL, KIJHL). A great benefit to playing BC Midget AAA is that players are also scouted against players their own age and not older players like they would in Junior B.

On the other hand, playing at the junior level when 16 or 17–it’s argued–can help a player develop faster. Today, both routes are still solid options. Check the link in the more info section below for more details.
