Western Challenge Cup (WCC)

Hello 2023 Ball Hockey Families,

The Greater Victoria Minor Ball Hockey Association will be sending teams to the 2023 Western Challenge Cup (WCC) tournament. The tournament is an opportunity for skilled minor ball hockey players to come together to represent GVMBHA and compete at an elite level against other minor ball hockey associations from Western Canada (BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba). The 2023 WCC Tournament will be in Edmonton Alberta from July 12 - 16 2023.

We will be holding tryouts to evaluate the players and select our Victoria Vipers teams. Vipers teams will practice during the season and then prepare fully with some weekday practices after the provincials at the end of June right through to the start of the WCC tournament.

For the upcoming 2023 WCC season, the age groups are as follows:

U11 Division - Players born in 2012 and 2013
U13 Division - Players born in 2010 and 2011
U15 Division - Players born in 2008 and 2009
U17 Division - Players born in 2006 and 2007
U19 Division - Players born in 2004 and 2005

If your player is interested in trying out for the Victoria Vipers WCC Teams, you must register below by end of day on APRIL 28th.


NO DROP-INS ALLOWED - you must register before you will be permitted on the floor. Please do not try out if you are not committed to attending practices, exhibition games and the tournament. A substantial amount of volunteer coaching and administrative time is required to organize the teams.

Thank you,




The WCC is a competitive program that provides an added opportunity for players within our league to challenge themselves in competition against other associations with a commitment to team success.  All interested coaches, parents and players need to review the new guidelines for this season. These guidelines were drafted by members of the RMMBHA Executive.
