RED DEER – Hockey Alberta has cancelled the 2021 Alberta Cup, Alberta Challenge and Prospects Cup.
The decision was made after a review of current Government of Alberta restrictions regarding youth sports, and an evaluation of priority areas pertaining to Team Alberta programming.
As a result, Hockey Alberta will focus on planning High Performance Camps to select its Team Alberta U18 Female and U16 Male squads. These teams will represent the province at Hockey Canada’s U18 Female national championship, and the WHL Cup in the fall. Currently, those events remain scheduled for their normal time frame – October for the WHL Cup, and early November for the U18 Nationals.
In addition, Hockey Alberta is planning to offer development camps for athletes who would have been eligible for the Alberta Challenge and Prospects Cup.
For 2008-born male players (Prospects Cup), skill development sessions are also being planned. More details about these development opportunities will be provided as they are confirmed.
