Almost Full!

We will be full in July. Register today!

The Pacific Coast Female Rep Classic Hockey Tournament, inaugurated in 2013, is a premier all-female tournament for competitive hockey teams in Western North America.  It is an effective preparation for your provincial or state championship.

This destination tournament is a unique opportunity to play against other elite female hockey teams.  Each October, 1000 elite youth athletes attend the Pacific Coast Female Rep Classic from 50 competitive hockey teams at the AA, A, and BB levels.

Two-thirds of the attending teams travel to Richmond from out-of-town to attend the tournament, arriving from throughout BC, across Canada, and the Western United States.

This tournament is oversubscribed every year and had over 80 applicants last year.  We will consider any team, but registration does not guarantee acceptance.  We accept teams based on their fit and their history at our tournament and other tournaments.
