Three Airdronians have made Team Alberta for the 2024 National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC).
From May 6–12 in Grande Prairie, Alberta will play home to the NAHC for the first time ever in 2024.
To represent Hockey Alberta, 22 female athletes are donning the blue and white. Here are the ones from Airdrie:
- Ava Clavelle - Defence
- Sara Stefanic - Defence
- Elise Vincent - Forward
“Our coaching staff and management group is very excited about the group of athletes that we have selected to represent Team Alberta at these championships,” said Jason Mercier, Head Coach of Team Alberta Female. “We have 11 returning players that were a huge part of our bronze medal team in Winnipeg, and we have an excellent group of new players that will play key roles in our success.”
From August 3–6, tryouts took place at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre in Red Deer. Women of First Nation, Métis, or Inuit ancestry who were born between 2006 and 2009 were eligible to try out.
“Having the 2024 NAHC on home soil in Grande Prairie for the first time in its history is going to add to the story that these girls are going to write for themselves, the memories will last a lifetime,” said Mercier.
