CANADA – The Best Junior U-20 Girls Players in the Country
On behalf of the National Ball Hockey Association of Canada and the High Performance Committee we are proud to announce the 2020 U-20 Girls Team Canada roster for the World Ball Hockey Federation Championship being hosted in Rovaniemi, Finland the week of June 30 - July 5.
The 22-player squad is comprised of seven players, who will be defending their gold medal from Nitra, Slovakia in 2018. The remaining fifteen players will be wearing the Canadian ball hockey jersey for the first time. Although the team is comprised of a lot of fresh, new talent in terms of international ball hockey, there is extensive ice hockey experience being added to the team roster this year.
We are excited about the group of players we have selected and are confident that they all possess the qualities we were looking for in a gold-medal team,” said Melissa Miller, General Manager/Head Coach. “These players have all earned their spot through hard work and dedication to the sport and I am excited to coach these young women at the international level. We have built a gold medal caliber club. Now we have to work on coming together as a team so that we can stand on our blueline at the end of the tournament and listen to our national anthem with gold medals around our necks.
Miller continued, “our staff brings forth a strong work ethic and ball hockey background and we are confident in their abilities to prepare our athletes as we continue to work towards the 2020 World Championships.”
“On behalf of the National Ball Hockey Association of Canada, I would like to congratulate the players named today, along with their leagues, club teams, families, coaches and officials who have helped them along the way,” said Stephen Dockerty, High Performance Director. With that said, it is with great pride that we present you the 2020 U-20 Girls Team Canada:
