CALGARY, AB - Twenty-eight of Canada's top young women's hockey players arrive in Calgary, AB this week for the NIKE Under 22 Team Development Camp from August 21-31 at the Father David Bauer Olympic Arena, the Canadian Hockey Association announced on Monday.

The coaching staff comprised of Head Coach Karen Hughes, of the University of Toronto Varsity Blues, and Assistant coaches Ken Dufton of the NWHL's Beatrice Aeros, and Julie Healy, of the NWHL's Montreal Wingstar will run daily practices and three intersquad games from August 21-31, 2001. The twenty-two players selected to Canada's National Women's Under 22 Team will face Sweden during a 3-game series in Langley and North Delta, BC in October, 2001.

The Canadian Hockey Association launched the National NIKE Under 22 Program during the 1998-1999 season. The program gives younger players an opportunity to experience international competition, on the international ice surface and to experience everything that international hockey encompasses such as international travel, different playing styles and international officiating.

The roster includes 13 returning players from the 2000-2001 National Under 22 Team: defencemen Cathy Chartrand, Gillian Ferrari, Carla MacLeod, Kim Malcher, Dana Pretty, Cassandra Turner and forwards Danielle Bourgeois, Brooke Bradburn, Annie Desrosiers, Carly Haggard, Cheryl Muranko, Lara Perks and Lori Shupak.

Newcomers to the NIKE Under 22 Program in 2001-2002 include Christine Dufour, a goaltender who starred at the first ever National Women's Under 18 Challenge in February, 2001 in Trois-Rivières, QC and forward Meghan Hunter, who finished as the national scoring leader in Women's College Hockey in the U.S. in 2000-2001.

Bauer NIKE Hockey, in partnership with the CHA, is a driving force of the game of hockey in Canada, supporting Canada's High Performance Teams, such as the National Under 22 Team, as well as the NIKE Skills Development Camps, held throughout the country. Bauer NIKE Hockey has been a premier sponsor of the CHA since 1997.
