BC Provincial Team selections – 2016 Alpha team rosters

BC Ultimate is proud to announce the rosters for our 2016 Provincial Junior Men’s and Women’s teams!
On May 1st over 150 of the best and brightest BC Junior Ultimate players came to Empire Field in Vancouver for the teams’ open tryouts. A total of 41 BC High Schools were represented.
“This year’s tryouts for the Provincial team were the most competitive in the history of the program”, commented former Provincial team member and current women’s head coach Rena Kawabata. “We are so excited to keep seeing the level of juniors talent in British Columbia getting higher, the future of our sport looks so bright.”
Over the course of 4 hours, head coaches Jon Hayduk and Rena Kawabata along with a dozen other assistants and evaluators put the players through their paces.
“The explosion of Ultimate at the High School level in BC has been incredible” noted BCU GM Brian Gisel, “The talent pool is very deep in the province and our 2016 squads will reflect that.”
Following the Open tryout 80 players made the cut to the invite tryouts on May 4th. Players, coaches and evaluators went through 3 more hours of drills and scrimmages. The depth of talent was impressive and in the end selecting the players for each team was extremely difficult.
After some difficult choices, the following players have been selected to the BC Provincial junior program, which will compete as “Alpha” for the 2016 summer season. BCU would like to thank the participants and we look forward to watching all BC junior teams this summer.
