Trinity Western Spartans Logo


The British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) is an independent university and college league. The league's current and former teams are also affiliated with other conferences (the CWUAA of U Sports, the GNAC or Big Sky of the NCAA, or the PWAA of the CCAA) in other sports.

The league officially started in 2005-06 with teams from Trinity Western University, Simon Fraser University, University of Victoria, University of Northern British Columbia and University of the Fraser Valley. The league is currently a 4-team league and plays a 24 game schedule. The top 4 teams qualify for best-of-3 semi-finals. There is no national championship for the league winner to pursue. In 2020-21 the Trinity Western Spartans moved to the Canada West Universities Athletic Association, where they already competed in other sports.

Recruited players usually come from Junior A or Junior B leagues, with a smattering of Major Junior grads as well.

The frequency of non-conference games between BCIHL teams and those from other conferences has increased. They usually suffer dominant losses to teams from U Sports and NCAA, but have done better against teams from the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC).
