DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – For the top female under-18 hockey players in the country, the dream begins in Dawson Creek at the 2021 National Women’s Under-18 Championship from October 31st to November 6th, 2021.
Not only do players get a chance to represent their province or region and compete for a gold medal, but this is the first step towards a coveted spot on Canada’s National Women’s Team.
The 2021 National Women’s Under-18 Championship Host Committee will continue its tradition of partnering with Hockey Canada that started in 2009 when Dawson Creek hosted Canada’s Women’s Olympic Team summer camp.
“We have established a great relationship with Dawson Creek, and we are thrilled to be heading back to the city with the 2021 National Women’s Under-18 Championship,” said Dean McIntosh, Vice-President of Events and Properties with Hockey Canada. “The community support at previous Hockey Canada events in Dawson Creek has been outstanding, and we know this event will be well-received by fans, community partners and volunteers in 2021.”
In 2012, Dawson Creek hosted the National Women’s Under-18 Championship, the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in 2015 and 2017, and the 2019 World Junior A Challenge.
“We knew after signing a historic long-term hosting agreement with Hockey Canada that we would see a variety of events come to Dawson Creek. Having the 2021 National Women’s Under-18 Championship and its legacy of National Team Alumni is an opportunity for the hockey fans of the region to see some of the very best,” said Dale Bumstead, Mayor of Dawson Creek. “We are thrilled to showcase Dawson Creek, the Peace Region and the Ovintiv Events Centre to the world as we prepare to host another prestigious event.”
