Emily Clark and Brigette Lacquette are among 35 players invited by Hockey Canada to attend the BFL National Women’s Training Camp in Halifax March 1-7.
The week-long camp includes practices at the Scotiabank Centre that will take place in a secure team self-isolation environment and is closed to both the public and media. Hockey Canada has worked extensively with the Province of Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia Public Health to ensure the health and safety of all participants and the community at large. Staff and players will strictly adhere to new restrictions announced on Friday that limit participants to 25 on the ice. They will continue to follow strict COVID-19 testing as per team health and safety protocols that have been detailed and approved by Nova Scotia Public Health.
The camp follows the January training camp in Calgary, which was the first opportunity the coaching staff had to evaluate players in preparation for the 2021 IIHF Women’s World Championship in Halifax and Truro this spring. It was also the first time Canada’s National Women’s Team was able to practice and scrimmage since the COVID-19 pandemic altered plans for in-person training and ice sessions last March.
