106 AFHL Players named to Alberta Winter Games rosters

RED DEER – Hockey Alberta has announced the female rosters for theĀ 2020 Alberta Winter Games, which include 106 players from the Alberta Female Hockey League.

Six teams will take to the ice in Airdrie on February 14-17, with 120 total female players (born in 2005 and 2006) ready to take the first step in the Team Alberta program.

Twenty players comprise each roster, along with volunteers serving as head coach, assistant coach, apprentice coach, coach mentor, trainer, and director of operations. Rosters were selected based on performances at regional camps held November 29 – December 1 in Innisfail and Wetaskiwin.

The Alberta Winter Games is a multi-sport event for developing athletes, aged 11-17 years old. The Winter Games were first hosted in 1976 in Banff, and occur each even-numbered year. The athletes are selected to represent the eight zones in Alberta in 20 sports such as hockey, badminton, gymnastics, skiing and skating. Hockey Alberta coordinates the ice hockey portion of the Winter Games, as a core segment of its Development Program.
