CALGARY, ALBERTA – Fourty-one of Canada’s best women’s hockey players under 22 years old are in Waterloo, ON from August 15-21, 2004 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 Lake Placid, NY and Burlington, VT from August 25-28, 2004.

The three-game series (August 25, 26 and 28) against the USA will follow the Development Camp which will take place at RIM Park, 2001 University Avenue (519-884-5363).  Practices and intersquad games during the Development Camp will be open to the public free of charge.

The forty-one players at the Development Camp were selected by the Under-22 coaching staff (Head Coach Peter Smith and assistant coaches Lisa MacDonald and Barry Medori) 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 Esso Nationals, CIS Nationals and the NWHL Championship.

Hockey Canada launched the National Under-22 Program during the 1998-1999 season. The program provides female hockey players aged 18-21 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 develops players that have the potential to move on to Canada’s National Women’s team and/or Women’s Olympic team in the future.
