Three members of the Kootenay Wildcats hockey team have been selected to attend the 2014 Female U18 BC Cup.

Merissa Dawson, of Nelson, Stephanie McAuley of Trail and Fernie’s Kimberley Huisman all received offers to attend the event, taking place April 23 to 27 in Salmon Arm.

The event will feature the top 80 athletes on four  Jamboree format teams. The first two days of the event will consist of practices, team building and fitness testing. The remainder of the weekend will consist of games where players are evaluated on their performance.

The top players will advance to Team BC Provincial Camp, May 16 to 19 in Lake Cowichan.

The Female U18 program is the beginning stage of the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence.  It is a chance for players to develop their on and off ice skills, be evaluated and move forward in the Female National Under 18 program.
