The IIHF World U18 Championship is an annual event organized by the International Ice Hockey Federation for national under-18 ice hockey teams from around the world. The tournament is usually played in April and is organized according to a system similar to Ice Hockey World Championships and World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. The tournament, however, does not always have the top players from Canada and some other countries as in April some CHL junior teams are still involved in junior playoffs. Instead the top U18 players involved in junior or university playoffs in North America play in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in August.
