There will be a lot of Westman flavour at Hockey Canada’s women’s program strength and conditioning camp that will be held in May in Hamilton, Ont.
Four players from the region were invited to the camp as part of the under-22 program, including goalie Brittni Mowat from Glenboro (who plays at Bemidji State), defenceman Halli Krzyzaniak of Neepawa (University of North Dakota), forward Ashleigh Brykaliuk of Brandon (University of Minnesota Duluth) and forward Cassidy Carels of Bruxelles (Providence College).
Of the 102 players invited to the camp, 49 were for the under-22 program while the other 53 were for the under-18 team. Goalie Kristen Campbell of Brandon (Shaftesbury Academy Titans), defenceman Melissa Hunt of Hartney (Westman Wildcats) and MacGregor’s Sheridan Oswald (Central Plains Capitals) were among those invited for the U18 squad.
The camp, which runs from May 7-11, is the first women’s program activity for the 2014-15 season and is the first step in identifying players that will participate in the 2018 Olympic Games in South Korea.
Players at the camp will also be considered for various other international events.
