“Team Alberta would like to congratulate the 46 athletes selected to attend Summer Camp in Camrose,” said Mathieu Provencher, Coordinator of Team Alberta, Female. "We’re looking forward to seeing how the players perform and compete during the week-long camp."
The 46 athletes were selected from 88 who attended the spring selection camp in Spruce Grove, which included fitness testing, mental skills preparations, on and off- ice skills sessions, and several games.
From the camp in Camrose, a shortlist will be established, with those players invited to another selection camp in the fall. Team Alberta will compete at the 2017 National Women’s Under 18 Championship November 1-5 in Quebec City.
