The St. John’s Maple Leafs will be looking to return to the Atlantic Championships to defend their title.

The Midget Female Atlantic Championship will be hosted in Pownal, Prince Edward Island. This is the second year of this up and coming event. Two teams from each of the Maritime Branches will converge upon Pownal with the hopes of leaving with the title of Midget Female Hockey Atlantic Champions. The event will run from April 6th-8th.
