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.”
