TEAM ATLANTIC (MALE & FEMALE)
The 2005 National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC) will be hosted in
Mirimachi, New Brunswick from April 17-23, 2005 and we will be sending two
teams that will be representing the Atlantic Provinces of Nova Scotia, New
Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland/Labrador.
Twenty-four (24) of the best male and female players born between the
years of 1987-1991 (male division) and as well for the female division
(1987-1991) with an allowance of five (5) overage female players born
between the years of 1984-1986. These players will go on to
represent Team Atlantic at the 2005 NAHC.
In the process of establishing some tryout dates and times for the
Atlantic Region, the organizing committee for Team Atlantic have decided
to host a few different "regional" tryout sessions to have a
look at the players available in both the male and female categories and
have set the following times and location for the Nova Scotia region.
