Registration is now open for the 2023 Alberta Challenge Regional Camps.
All 2008 and 2009-born female players, registered with a Hockey Alberta or a Hockey Canada sanctioned minor hockey association are eligible to register and try out for the Alberta Challenge. Eligible athletes must be permanent residents of Alberta.
Positions at Regional Camps are limited and awarded on a first-come, first serve basis. There will be two Regional Camps occurring simultaneously between April 7-9 at the following locations:
- Cochrane Regional Camp – Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre
- Beaumont Regional Camp – Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre
Please ensure that prior to registration, you have reviewed the Alberta Challenge Regional Boundaries to determine what zone your child resides in. Athletes are only permitted to register for the region in which they reside and the position (goaltender, defense or forward) for which they wish to be considered for the Alberta Challenge. Any athlete who registers for an incorrect region or position may have their registration refunded less an admin fee and will not be guaranteed acceptance to attend the regional camp tryout, subject to the correct region/position availability.
Should the region/position be sold out at the time you try and register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to a wait list for that position/region, do not try and register for another region.
Visa and Mastercard are the only payment methods that are accepted through the payment platform. American Express and debit cards will not be approved. Please ensure that you are prepared with an accepted method of payment.
The 2023 Alberta Challenge will take place May 3-7 at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre in Red Deer.
The Alberta Challenge is a core Hockey Alberta Female Development program, providing players, coaches, therapists, equipment managers, administrators and referees an equal opportunity to discover the great qualities of competitive hockey.
The Alberta Challenge aids in preparation, evaluation and identification of potential players for Hockey Alberta’s Team Alberta program and is a grassroots program. Through the camps, the players are able to measure themselves against other players of the same age and receive instruction from some of the best coaches in the province. For those selected to the regional teams, the Alberta Challenge is a taste of top level competition.
