RED DEER - A total of 114 female athletes from across Alberta are about to take the next step in Hockey Alberta’s Team Alberta program.
Invitations have been extended to 68 players to attend the Team Alberta U18 Female Summer Camp July 9-14 in Red Deer, which is the next step in the selection process for the 2019 U18 Nationals in Morden & Winkler, MB. 46 players have also been invited to the Team Alberta U16 Female Summer Camp, which runs in conjunction with the U18 camp from July 11-14.
"Summer camp is a big event for these athletes and for Hockey Alberta," said Kendall Newell, Manager of Female Hockey. "The talent level that we have this year at both the U16 and U18 level is very encouraging to see, and we are excited to see these players show their skills."
The U16 camp list includes six goalies, 16 defence, and 24 forwards, while the U18 camp will host eight goalies, 24 defence, and 36 forwards. The selection process is based on the Team Alberta scouting process throughout the 2018-19 season, as well as the 2019 U16 Alberta Challenge in Leduc in May. From the Summer Camp, a shortlist will be established, with those players scouted with their club teams and 25-27 players continuing on to Fall Camp where the 20 players who will comprise the roster for Team Alberta are named.
