The Thunderbirds are led by provincial team teammates Max Petryk and Grayson Youngs.

The tournament kicks off Thursday at 1:45 when the number one ranked Jasper Place Rebels out of Edmonton face Salmon Arm.

Other teams competing include reigning BC champion and number two ranked Burnaby South Rebels, the sixth ranked Oak Bay Bays, Cardston Cougars, rated third in Alberta and the Vincent Massey Trojans, the top ranked team out of Manitoba.

Game happen through Saturday with the final set for 7 p.m. Saturday evening.
