About the Alberta Challenge
The Alberta Challenge is a core Hockey Alberta Female Development program, providing players, coaches, therapists, equipment managers, administrators and referees an equal opportunity to discover the great qualities of competitive hockey.
The Alberta Challenge is held alternating years when the Alberta Winter Games are not held. The Alberta Challenge process begins in April, with players trying out at their respective regional camps. The province is divided into North and South regions, with three teams selected from each region. The six teams compete in the Alberta Challenge tournament in May.
The Alberta Challenge aids in the preparation, evaluation and identification of potential players for Hockey Alberta’s Team Alberta program, and is a grassroots program.Through the camps, the players are able to measure themselves against other players of the same age and receive instruction from some of the best coaches in the province. For those selected to the regional teams, the Alberta Challenge is a taste of top level competition.
