BC Hockey Athlete Invited to the National Women’s Team Fall Festival
Friday, September 01, 2006

BC Hockey would like to congratulate Kobi Kawamoto on her selection to the National Women’s Team Fall Festival. The festival will kick off tomorrow and conclude on September 10 in Kenora, Ontario.


Kawamoto is one of Canada’s top 57 female hockey players, including 18 Olympic gold medalists, selected to attend the national fall festival. The purpose of the festival is to select players to Canada’s National Women’s Team for 2006-2007 events, such as 2006 Four Nations Cup and the 2007 IIHF World Women’s Championships. The festival is also part of the ongoing evaluation and identification of players for upcoming seasons and the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.


"Kobi has been working hard this past summer to improve her fitness level as well as her on-ice skills,” said BC Hockey Provincial Coach Nancy Wilson. “She is an ‘offensive’ minded defenseman who brings speed and puck skills to the National team blueline.  Our High Performance program would like to wish Kobi every success at the camp.”


At the festival, intersquad games will be held Monday, September 4 through Thursday, September 7. All practices and game-day skates are open to the public free of charge.


Kawamoto plays defense and is a native of Surrey, BC. She has represented BC at past national events. At the age of 17 she attended her first National Women’s Team camp. Kawamoto accepted a scholarship to St. Cloud where she was a two-time conference all-star. After graduation, Kawamoto remained in Minnesota and played for the Minnesota White Caps of the Western Women’s Hockey League. This past June, she attended a Hockey Canada Program of Excellence National Women’s Hockey Fitness Camp.
