The West Coast Heat are a Senior AAA hockey team from Vancouver, British Columbia. The team was established in 2016. The team is based out of the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on the campus of Simon Fraser University.
The team is playing an independent schedule for the 2016-17 season. The team's schedule for its first season will include 2 games each against the Simon Fraser Clan, Powell River Regals, and the Whitehorse Huskies.
They had been announced attempting to qualify for the 2017 Allan Cup. In early February it was announced that the team would not be able to play for the provinces Senior AAA championship, as many of the players had already committed to teams to play for the Senior AA Coy Cup instead which had been resceduled to the same weekend as the Pacific Region Allan Cup qualifying forcing them and Powell River Regals to abandon their plans for 2017.
The Heat were originally announced to play at the Senior AAA level in 2017-18 and attempt to qualify for the 2018 Allan Cup being held in Rosetown, Saskatchewan. However, the team would later decide against playing at the Senior AAA level again for 2017-18. No reason was given for the decision.
