CALGARY, AB - Thirty-four of Canada's top women's hockey players will take part in Canada's National Women's Team Evaluation Camp from October 3-9, 2000 at the Father David Bauer Olympic Arena in Calgary, AB, the Canadian Hockey Association announced Monday.

Head coach Danièle Sauvageau and assistants Melody Davidson and Wally Kozak will conduct daily practices and four intersquad games during the camp to evaluate the players

The camp is another step in the seven month process of evaluating players for the 2001 Women's World Hockey Championship in Minnesota, USA. Over the next seven months, the coaching staff will be evaluating players and forming development rosters using a number of players that are a part of a National Women's team pool.

No final roster decisions will be made until mid-February, when the CHA will name the final roster for Canada's National Women's team that will compete at the Women's Worlds.

Canada's National Women's team will play a number games across Canada and the USA, using different rosters for each event between October, 2000 and mid-February, 2001.

Two players from last year's World Championship Team unable to attend the camp are Dana Antal and Hayley Wickenheiser. Wickenheiser is a member of Canada's National Women's Softball team that just participated in the 2000 Summer Olympic Games, while Antal continues to recover from a knee injury suffered last spring.

Upcoming events for Canada's National Women's Team include the 4 Nations Cup in November, a tour in January and the 2001 World Women's Hockey Championship in Minnesota, USA in April, 2001.

All media requests during the camp must be made through André Brin, Manager, Media Relations. Brin will be on-site at the National Women's Team Evaluation Camp and can also be contacted at 403-703-8791, or by leaving a message at 403-777-3609.

There will be daily practices and four Red/White intersquad games to be held on October 4 (7 pm), October 6 (6:30 pm), October 8 (6:30 pm) and October 9 (6:30 pm). All times are Mountain Time. Games and practices are open to the public free of charge.
