Is there going to be U15 players from last year playing for U17?

I can't speak for the boys side but on the girls side their will almost certainly have to be. (Depending on who tries out of course). Grace Wade as a u16 aged player may be the best ballhandler in the group and depending on what post options they have the u15's big girls from nationals last year might be a better option.

A lot will depend on who coaches which team I would expect. What do they want? What are their goals? Are they looking down the line or at this one team this summer?

Remember that ahoever takes the u17 team this year may not get it again next year. They would have to apply and then get the two year commitment to u17 that comes with a Canada games years. Since the next u17 coach will be selected for a two year commitment leading into and at Canada Games (and there is no quarantee that either the u17 or u16 coach this summer would be the one to get it) then it is hard for them to make an argument for grooming players if they are not going to be there again. Though is BNB moves to a system of all summer teams playing the same principles and can get coacehs to buy in it may be less of an issue.

Typically the under aged players who make U17 are bigs. That would put kids like Eric Nissen, Ben McPherson and Jake Livingston as front runners for a spot.

As for U16 that's nearly impossible to predict. That's the provincial team that suffers the most from kids choosing not to participate. Last year's U15 & U15D had a lot of very good players and several that were cut that played very well this past year in JV (ex. Davies from FHS). U16 good be a very good team if everyone came out for the team.
