Each region is handling their own training/selection camps differently. For example, here in the Prairie region there will be an actual tournament for all teams in the region to compete in and then an all-star team will be selected from the tournament.

When all is said and done, the regional all-star teams will compete at the national invitational tournament in Borden 30 Apr - 5 May 00.
