Hockey Canada, in partnership with BC Hockey and the Host Committee of the 2009 National Women’s Under 18 Championship, announced on Friday that ticket packages are now on sale for the event, to be held at South Surrey Arena from November 4-8.
A full tournament package, featuring all 18 games, is available for $80, while an evening and weekends package, featuring the 5 pm and 8 pm games nightly from November 4-6 and all six playoff round games on November 7-8 – a total of 12 games – can be purchased for $60.
“This event is quickly becoming one of the biggest on the women’s hockey calendar, and we are excited to be hosting the nation’s best women’s under-18 players here in Surrey,” said Steve Edlund, Chair of the Host Committee. “With the Olympics on the minds of so many British Columbians, it will be a thrill to see the players who are the future of women’s hockey in Canada.”
BC Hockey’s Female High Performance Program was established to identify and train athletes and team personnel for possible participation at Provincial, National and International events. The Female Under 18 Program is the first identification stage for female players in BC.
