Registration for the 2023 Alberta Cup Regional Camps will open January 16 at 11:00 A.M. MST on the Hockey Alberta and Alberta Challenge websites. All 2008 & 2009-born female players, registered with a Hockey Alberta / 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 (Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre)
- Beaumont (Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre)
Please ensure that prior to registration, you have reviewed the Alberta Challenge regional boundaries to determine what region 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 waitlist for that position/region, do not try and register for another region.
The cost of Regional Camp will be $250.00 plus tax and an admin fee and includes:
- Four (4) ice sessions
- One (1) practice jersey
- Access to three (3) zoom webinars in March to help athletes prepare for the Regional Camp, Short Term Competition and General, and the Team Alberta Program.
