Four FMAAA Teams Invited to Mac’s Tournament
Thursday, December 22, 2016
It will be a busy holiday break for four (4) Female Midget AAA (FMAAA) teams as they make the trip to Calgary, Alberta to compete in the prestigious Mac’s Midget AAA World Invitational Tournament from December 26, 2016 to January 1, 2017.
The Fraser Valley Rush, Kootenay Wild, Northern Capitals, and Vancouver Island Seals will compete against six (6) other Midget AAA teams from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the United States.
The Northern Capitals are defending tournament champions, having defeated the Rocky Mountain Raiders of the Alberta Female Hockey League (AFHL) 5-1 in last season’s championship game.
The tournament is played at several different arenas around Calgary, with the championship game being played at the Saddledome, home of the National Hockey League’s (NHL) Calgary Flames. The tournament draws more than 100,000 spectators over seven (7) days, with the championship game drawing 10,000 fans alone.
The FMAAA program consists of six (6) zone-based teams across the province – the Fraser Valley Rush, Greater Vancouver Comets, Kootenay Wild, Northern Capitals, Thompson-Okanagan Lakers, and Vancouver Island Seals. The teams play a 30 game regular season, followed by the playoffs. The FMAAA Champion has the opportunity to compete for the ESSO Cup, Hockey Canada's National Female Midget Championship, which will take place in Morden, Manitoba from April 23 - 29, 2017.
The FMAAA program was initiated in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite female Midget teams. The league has had more than 100 players move on to post-secondary hockey opportunities.
