Alberta Challenge regional camps begin today and run through to Sunday.
Over the weekend, hundreds of 2008 and 2009-born female athletes are attending camps in Cochrane and Beaumont in hopes of cracking an Alberta Challenge roster.
Three teams will be identified from each camp. Athletes who were registered with a Hockey Alberta or a Hockey Canada sanctioned minor hockey association were eligible to try out.
The Alberta Challenge will be played May 4-7 at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre in Red Deer. It is the second event of Hockey Alberta’s Spring Showcase. The Spring Showcase opens with the Alberta Cup (April 26-30) and wraps with the Prospects Cup (May 10-13).
Partnership opportunities are available for the 2023 Spring Showcase and can be found in the document below.
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 aids in 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 competition.
