CALGARY, Alta. – Fifteen goaltenders have been invited to attend this year’s National Women’s Program goaltending camp, taking place June 6-9 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.

The list of invitees includes eight under-18 goaltenders and seven under-22/development netminders, who will work with several highly skilled instructors, both on and off the ice, during the four-day camp at Hockey Canada’s home rink.

In addition to the 15 goaltenders attending camp, Stacey Corfield (Winnipeg, Man.), who is an assistant coach with the Manitoba Female Midget Hockey League’s Winnipeg Avros and goaltending coach with the University of Manitoba, will serve as a group leader for the under-22/development program, while Amanda Mazzotta (London, Ont.), who has played for both Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team and Canada’s National Women’s Under-22/Development Team, will serve as a group leader for the under-18 program.

“We’re excited to welcome our country’s top young female goaltenders to our first-class facilities in Calgary for this year’s camp,” Hockey Canada’s director of female national teams Kalli Quinn said. “This will be a wonderful opportunity for them to work with some of the best goaltending instructors in the business, and learn what it takes to be a part of Canada’s National Women’s Program.”

Goaltending instructors for the camp include Matt Cockell (Winnipeg, Man./Hockey Canada), Joe Johnston (Lower Sackville, N.S./Dalhousie University, CIS), Richard Jones (Edmonton, Alta./Parkland Hockey Academy, Bantam AAA), Brad Kirkwood (Calgary, Alta./University of Calgary, CIS) and Perry Wilson (Windsor, Ont./University of Windsor, CIS). The on-ice sessions are open to public and media.
