Hockey Alberta has extended invitations to 46 athletes born between 1999-2001 to compete at the camp in July. The 46 athletes were selected from 88 who attended the spring selection camp in Spruce Grove. The athletes competed in fitness testing, mental skills preparations, on ice skills sessions, and several games.
The players from this camp will be sent to another selection camp in the fall.
