Central Albertans invited to Team Canada Ringette selection camp

A group of Central Alberta ringette players are among the hopefuls looking to land a spot on Canada’s national team.

Twenty-seven of the country’s best players will participate in a Team Canada Selection Camp from July 25-27 in Edmonton. The final roster will be announced following the camp and players will train for the 2019 World Ringette Championships in Burnaby, B.C. from Nov. 25- Dec. 1.

Brea Beck (Red Deer), Gillian Dreger (Lacombe), Melissa Misutka (Lacombe), Jamie Bell (Lacombe) and Dailyn Bell (Lacombe) will all attend camp next weekend.

“It is going to be an exciting weekend of high-caliber ringette as our country’s best leave it all on the ice for a chance to represent Canada on our senior national team roster,” said Stephanie Laurin, Ringette Canada’s Manager of High Performance and Athlete Services in a press release.

“These athletes have been diligently training and preparing for this camp and will be giving it all they’ve got. We look forward to watching them compete and achieve their goals.”

Beck, along with Jamie and Dailyn Bell represented Canada at the 2017 World Ringette Championships in Mississagua, Ont.
