About the Alberta Winter Games

The Alberta Winter Games is a multi-sport event for developing athletes, aged 11-17 years old. The Winter Games were first hosted in 1976 in Banff, and occur each even-numbered year. The athletes are selected to represent the eight zones in Alberta in 20 sports such as hockey, badminton, gymnastics, skiing and skating.Hockey Alberta coordinates the ice hockey portion of the Winter Games, as a core segment of its Development Program.

The Alberta Winter Games are the start of the Hockey Alberta Development Program, and run every second year, alternating with the Alberta Challenge. The Alberta Winter Games provide athletes, coaches, trainers and administrators an opportunity to discover the qualities of competitive hockey in a well-organized regional camp and select team competition. Female athletes born in 2003 and 2004 are eligible to compete in the 2018 Alberta Winter Games.

Recently revamped, The Alberta Winter Games – Female Hockey begin with two regional camps, a North and a South Camp, designed to allow athletes, coaches and trainers to show their skills and receive top-level instruction and evaluation. The top 60 athletes from each regional camp (three teams per region), six coaches, three coach mentors, three trainers and three directors of operations will be selected to participate in the Alberta Winter Games.

The 2018 Alberta Winter Games run February 16-19 in Fort McMurray. Zone Camps will run December 8-10, locations TBD. Player registration and coaching applications will be available in September.
