Over the seven months that follow this camp, the coaching staff will continue evaluating players and forming development rosters using a number of players that are part of a National Women's team pool. No final roster decisions will be made for Canada's National Women's Team until mid-February, when the CHA will name the final roster for the team that will compete at the Women's Worlds.

For the National Women's Under 22 Team, this NIKE Elite Camp serves as a selection camp for the team that will play three games against the USA Select Under 22 Team from August 24-27, 2000 in Alberta.

On August 21, 2000 the CHA will name a 22-player roster for the National Women's Under 22 Team for three games against the USA Select Under 22 Team. Games are scheduled for August 24th and August 25th in Calgary at 7:00 pm, and on August 27th in Medicine Hat, AB at 6:00 pm.

Today, the CHA also announced that goaltender Kendra Fisher, of Kincardine, ON has been replaced on the National Under 22 Team NIKE Elite Camp Roster by Laura Paradis, a 20 year old goaltender from Cutknife, Saskatchewan. Fisher left the camp on Monday, citing "personal reasons".

At the National Women's Team Camp, goaltender Danielle Dubé, of Vancouver, BC, aggravated a previous hand injury. Dubé's status for practices and games will be evaluated on a daily basis.
