Schedule released for Senior Nationals

May 25, 2009

The 35-match schedule for the 2009 FHC Senior National Championships was released today just over eight weeks before the start of the event.  Both the men’s and women’s tournaments will take place at Hawkings Field on the campus of the University of Calgary in Alberta.

The ten-team women’s tournament will begin on Wednesday, July 22nd with host Alberta South facing British Columbia’s Under-18 White team.  Classification and playoff matches will begin on the weekend with the gold medal final scheduled for 3:00 PM (MT) on Sunday, July 26th.

The tournament includes elite-level teams from Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Prince Edward Island.

The four-team men’s event will begin on Tuesday, July 21st with medal matches to be played on Friday, July 24th.  The tournament features British Columbia, Ontario, Alberta, and an as yet to be named team.

The men’s tournament wraps up two days earlier than the women’s side to allow Canada’s high performance athletes the opportunity to centralize with the National Team program over the weekend ahead of a potential international series.

The 2008 FHC National Championships were swept by teams from British Columbia.
