Alberta Challenge 2024 Regional Camp Registration Reminder & Details


RED DEER – Registration for the 2024 Alberta Challenge Regional Camps opens on Monday, January 15 at 4 pm (MT) on the Hockey Alberta and Alberta Challenge websites.

All 2009 & 2010-born female players, registered with a Hockey Alberta-sanctioned Minor Hockey Association or Hockey Canada-sanctioned Accredited School, are eligible to register for a Regional Camp and try out for the Alberta Challenge.

Positions at the two Regional Camp tryouts are limited and awarded based on the order that registration is completed and confirmed in the online registration system. Regional Camps are scheduled for the weekend of April 5-7 at the following locations:

  • Cochrane (Spray Lake Sawmills)
  • Beaumont (Beaumont Sport & Recreation Centre)


Prior to Regional Camp registration, please review the Alberta Challenge registration directory to determine in which region your child resides.


Athletes are only permitted to register for the region in which they reside and the position (goaltender,  defence 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 is not guaranteed a spot at to the Regional Camp tryout, subject to position availability in the correct region.

Please ensure you have your athlete’s Alberta Health Number when registering. This is a required field. Player Hockey ID numbers are not required.

The cost to participate in a Regional Camp is $250 (plus tax and admin fee) and includes:

  • Four ice sessions
  • One practice jersey
  • Three zoom webinars in March to help athletes prepare for the Regional Camp, and learn more about Short Term Competition, and the Team Alberta program.

Once registered, a confirmation email will be sent to the billing email. Athletes who register will be sent webinar information in February. Approximately one week prior to Regional Camp weekend, rosters and schedules for the tryouts are sent to each player.


It is expected that registration will fill up quickly on January 15th.
