CALGARY, ALBERTA - Canada's National Under 18 Summer Team begins a four-day pre-competition camp Wednesday, August 1, 2001 at the Beatrice Ice Gardens, on the campus of York University in North York, ON, in preparation for the Six Nations Under 18 Hockey Tournament in the Czech Republic, the Canadian Hockey Association and the Canadian Hockey League announced Tuesday.

Twenty-two of the thirty-four players in camp will represent Canada in the Czech Republic. Head coach George Burnett, head coach of the OHL's Oshawa Generals, will be assisted by Jim Hulton, head coach of the OHL's Guelph Storm, Guy Lalonde, head coach of the QMJHL's Hull Olympiques and guest coach Christian LaRue, of the QMJHL's Moncton Wildcats. The players were selected by the Canadian Hockey Association's Director of Scouting, Barry Trapp in collaboration with three regional scouts, Jim Currie (West), Jim Cassidy (Ontario) and Serge Aubry (Quebec).

The 2001 National Under 18 Summer Team is comprised entirely of players born in 1984. The Under 18 National team is part of a three stage Program of Excellence beginning with the under 17 regional teams and ending with the World Junior team. The primary objectives of the under 18 program are to identify, evaluate and condition players to the rigours of international competition by giving them their first exposure to international hockey, international officiating, larger ice surfaces, and travel.

The Under 18 Summer Team is a first step in preparation of Canada's participation in the 2002 IIHF World Under 18 Hockey Championship next April in Slovakia. The World Championship team will be comprised of players under 18 years old whose teams are not playing in either the CHL, Junior A or collegiate playoffs at that time.

Any interview requests can be made to Terry Bangen, the CHA's Manager, High Performance, in person at the Beatrice Ice Gardens or by contacting the Ice Gardens at 416-661-5900.
