CALGARY, ALBERTA – Thirty-nine of Canada's best women's hockey players under 22 years old are in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC from August 11-17, 2003 for Canada's National Under-22 team Development and Selection Camp.

A roster of 22 players will be selected at the conclusion of the camp to represent Canada in a three-game series versus the U.S. National Under-22 team in Montreal, QC from August 20-23, 2003.
The three-game series (August 20, 21 and 23) against USA will follow the Development Camp and be played at the Sportplexe 4 Glaces in Pierrefonds QC (Phone 514-626-2500). Admission for all three games is free of charge. Practices and intersquad games during the Development Camp are also open to the public free of charge.

CANADA vs. USA Game Schedule (August 20-23, 2003)

The thirty-nine players at the Development Camp were selected by the Under-22 coaching staff (Head Coach Margot Page and assistant coaches Lisa MacDonald and Peter Smith) after an extensive season of player scouting, led by Wally Kozak, Hockey Canada's Women's Program Head Scout. Kozak oversaw a team of scouts and attended games, tournaments and championships all over North America, including but not limited to, the Canada Winter Games, the Esso Nationals, CIS Nationals and the NWHL Championship

Hockey Canada launched a National Under-22 Program during the 1998-1999 season. The program provides female hockey players under the age of 22 with an opportunity to be evaluated against the best Under 22 players in Canada. The program also provides the players with an opportunity to gain international experience which includes playing on a bigger ice surface, high performance coaching, international travel and different playing styles and systems. The Under-22 program identifies and evaluates players that potentially will move on to Canada's National Women's team and/or Women's Olympic team in the future.

One roster change was made on Monday as Samantha Ward withdrew from the camp for personal reasons.
