The Zone Championships have been completed, and the qualifiers for the BC Championships have been determined.
The tournament format has teams grouped in Power Pools for an initial round-robin. Winners of pools will move up to a higher group, last place in a pool will move down a group, and then be ranked 1-16 for sorting into the playoffs.
There were upsets at some of the AAA Zone Championships, notably Penticton dropping from 1 to 4 in the Okanagan, Delta prevailing over Earl Marriott in the Fraser Valley, Argyle over Van Tech in the Lower Mainland, and Dover Bay reaching Island #2 over Royal Bay. This speaks to the competitive balance in the AAA from 1 through 20. Three teams received wild cards, Kelowna, Penticton, and Reynolds.
