RED DEER – Hockey Alberta’s Spring Showcase continues on Thursday as the 2022 Alberta Challenge gets underway in Red Deer.
Six teams, comprised of 120 of the province’s top 2007 and 2008-born female athletes, are taking to the ice at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre from Thursday to Sunday: North Blue, North Grey, North Yellow, South Black, South Green, and South White.
The teams will play in a four-day, tournament-format competition with the top two round-robin seeds playing for the championship.
Full tournament results will be displayed on the score ticker at the top of abchallenge.ca, where you can also find schedules, stats and standings. All 2022 Alberta Challenge games will be streamed live on HockeyTV. You can also follow along with the action on Twitter.
Tournament passes are still available online or at the door for $42 (includes GST and service fee), and children 12 and under will be free of charge. Day Passes will also be available at the door or online for $10.50 each.
Throughout the weekend 50/50 tickets are available for purchase online. Proceeds from the Hockey Alberta’s Team Alberta 50/50 will be used to offset athlete costs, enhance the athlete experience, and provide development opportunities for Team Alberta coaches and support staff.
The Alberta Challenge is a grassroots program that aids in the preparation, evaluation, and identification of potential players for Hockey Alberta’s Team Alberta 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.
