RED DEER – Hockey Alberta has invited 114 athletes to attend the 2023 Team Alberta Female Summer Camp.
The Under-18 Camp is scheduled for July 11-16 at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre in Red Deer. A total of 72 female athletes were invited to camp, with eight goalies, 24 defence and 40 forwards in attendance. Throughout the camp, athletes will be evaluated and shortlisted for Fall Camp in hopes of securing a position on Team Alberta to compete at the national event this fall.
On Thursday, the Under-16’s will join the U18’s in Red Deer to kick off their own camp that will wrap on July 16. Six goalies, 14 defence and 24 forwards were invited to camp after being evaluated throughout the season and at the Alberta Challenge. The Under-16 Summer Camp serves as a development camp to introduce the U16’s to the Team Alberta process.
“We’ve had the opportunity to watch and evaluate these players at various events and have watched them develop over the years,” said Kendall Newell, Hockey Alberta’s Manager of Female Hockey. “We are confident that the talent that will be showcased at camp represents a bright future for Team Alberta.”
Both camps include on and off-ice sessions and games.
