BC Female Athletes Selected to National Womens Under-19 Program Evaluation Camp
Friday, June 29, 2007

BC Hockey is proud to announce that seven BC hockey players have been invited to attend the National Women’s Under-19 Program evaluation camp, July 22-29 at Father David Bauer Olympic Arena in Calgary.

The players were selected by Hockey Canada to be part of the Under-19 program based on evaluations done by Wally Kozak, head scout for the National Women’s Program, along with his regional scouts during the 2006-07season. These evaluations included performances with their respective club teams, along with the 2007 Canada Winter Games in Whitehorse, YT.

Congratulations to Hillary Pattenden, Rayna Cruickshank, Kaleigh Fratkin, Erica Kromm, Jennie Gallo, Ling Ling Lok, and Kathleen McDonald for being the seven members from British Columbia selected to the camp.  These athletes have been a part of BC Hockey’s Female High Performance Program and all represented Team BC at the recent Canada Winter Games. Provincial Coach Nancy Wilson says “BC Hockey and our High Performance Program are very proud of our athletes. They have worked hard to improve their skills and we wish them all the best at the upcoming National selection camp.”

Thirty-four of the players selected to attend the camp are eligible to represent Canada at the inaugural IIHF World Women’s Under-18 Championship, to be held in Canada in January 2008. Hockey Canada will use this camp to help select 22 players who will make up the National Women’s Under-18 Team for an exhibition series vs. the USA’s National Women’s Under-18 Team in Ottawa, ON from August 23-26.

The remaining 23 players (1989 birthdays) will be evaluated and considered for a spot on the National Women’s Under-22 Team, which will travel to Lake Placid, NY for a three-game exhibition series vs. the USA’s National Women’s Under-22 Team from August 23-26.

 “This is an exciting place to be – starting our National Women’s Under 18 Program and preparing to participate in the inaugural IIHF World Women’s Under-18 Championship,” says Julie Healy, director of female hockey for Hockey Canada. “What a tremendous opportunity this is for the athletes and staff. The opportunity this presents to continue to grow the female game in every part Canada is invaluable.”
