94 current or former Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL) student-athletes competed at the 2023 Canada Winter Games.

The 2023 CWG took place in Prince Edward Island from February 18 – March 5. Players from all over the country represented their province at the U16 Male and U18 Female divisions.

62 of the 94 players with ties to the CSSHL represented their provinces in the mens division, while the remaining 32 were on the female side.

It was in the Female U18 division where CSSHL student-athletes had the most success as 14 of the 20 players on the Team BC roster that took home gold currently play in the CSSHL. Team BC was coached by Kris Hogg, the head coach of the RINK Hockey Academy Kelowna Female U18 Prep team. Lydia Maxwell, who works with Delta Hockey Academy, was the Athletic Therapist for the team.

Team Saskatchewan, who had four players with ties to the CSSHL, finished second on the mens side.
