BC Hockey is pleased to announce the players selected to attend the 2007 U18 Provincial Development Camp in Nanaimo August 13-18.
The six-day U18 Female Provincial Development Camp will aim to train and prepare British Columbia's finest female hockey players under the age of eighteen for possible selection to future national and provincial teams.
This season forty-four players have been invited to attend provincial camp based on their performance at the 2007 U18 BC Cup competition, which was recently held in Salmon Arm. The objectives of this year's camp are to evaluate and train the selected athletes in preparation for the challenges of high performance hockey, both at the national and international level. Also to pick Team BC that will be competing in November at the National Competition in Kitchener, Ontario.
The provincial camp represents the third stage of the BC Hockey Female U18 High Performance Program. The selected players have successfully performed in their zone camps (held in January) and at the U18 Cup (held in April). This summer’s camp will feature mental training, nutritional information, goal setting, ice sessions, fitness testing, and games.
The U18 Female High Performance Program is under the direction of Shannon Bell, Officer at Large, and Bruce Tuck, Female High Performance Coordinator. The evaluation team at the U18 Cup were impressed with the competition, and believe that the pool of Female Hockey players within BC is becoming stronger.
