The National Ball Hockey Association of Canada would like to announce its roster for the World Ball Hockey Federation Women’s World Championships to be held in Litomerice, Czech Republic, in June 2017. The players have been selected and into these players’ hands will fall the responsibility of capturing the World Championship.
General Manager, Cindy Horton, could not have sounded happier with the composition of the club. “This team is comprised of highly talented, dedicated and diverse players led by an experienced, passionate and motivated coaching staff”. She continued, ‘each player has been selected for their athleticism, ball hockey skills, but most importantly for their character they display on & off the floor. When a group of players come together, combining each of these attributes....we have the components for a championship team.”
Similar sentiments were echoed by Head Coach Mario Facciuolo during the scouting sessions and camp, “players of this team were brought together because they each bring a unique set of skills and expertise to the team. We are confident that they will indeed represent Canada well in the Czech Republic.”
Horton, “our plan is for these girls to have an experience of a lifetime and make friends with a very unique bond. We have a coaching staff that is second to none with a strong team of support staff, ensuring that as a team we are focused on two things. To be Living the Dream and to Bring home Gold!”
With that being said, we are pleased to announce this year’s Women’s Team Canada Family
