At the beginning of August, the national women's team coaching pool invited 53 players to attend the first ever evaluation camp for the national women's team from October 14-20, 1995. Of the original 53 players named, only Virginie Bilodeau of St-Étienne-de-Lauzon, Que., Winnipeg's Laura Vanderhorst and Denise Caron of Montreal declined the invitation because of career or health concerns. "It's been a challenge for us to establish yards-sticks for comparing players across the country with so few competitive opportunities," says Bob Nicholson, Canadian Hockey senior vice-president, hockey operations. "But our coaching pool has put in a lot of effort over the past season in evaluating players and reviewing the information gathered from our branches. "We're in an important development period for the women's program," adds Nicholson. "The core of Canada's teams for the 1997 World Women's Championship in Kitchener, Ontario, and the 1998 Winter Olympics, should come from this group, and our evaluation process of today will affect our programs into the next century as we look to the 2002 Olympics." The coaching staff will use the camp to evaluate each player through an interview process, fitness testing, on-ice skills and initiation to international style hockey. The information will be put in the national women's team database, allowing the staff to monitor the players over the next few years to Nagano. From this up-coming evaluation camp, the coaching pool will select 20 players to represent Canada at the 1996 Pacific Women's Hockey Championship scheduled for Vancouver from April 1-6, 1996. "We'll outline to the players the commitment necessary to wear a Canadian jersey at the 1998 Olympics, and challenge them to set goals to meet these expectations," comments Nicholson. The on-ice sessions are open to the general public. Canadian Hockey, in conjunction with the Hockey Hall of Fame, is also hosting a women's hockey festival on Thursday, October 19, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., with information booths and seminars.

Head coach Shannon Miller of Calgary will lead the best 20 players in Canada today to the Women's Pacific Rim Championship along with assistants Mel Davidson, also of Calgary, and Karen Hughes of Agincourt, Ont. Canadian Hockey held a first evaluation camp for the national women's team program for 53 invited players just north of Toronto in mid-October. "The camp really showed us the depth of talent that Canada has in women's hockey," says Bob Nicholson, Canadian Hockey senior vice-president of hockey operations. "We had a tough time in cutting down the group to a roster of 20 players for the 1996 Pacific Women's Rim Championship. There were some very hard decisions that had to be made." Shannon Miller, five-year veteran of the national program, hopes she can provide the team with some of the leadership necessary to keep the Canadian national women's team moving forward. "I have been fortunate to work with the last two world championship teams, the last one as an assistant, but I believe my biggest test so far was at last year's Pacific Women's Rim Championship," says Miller. "With 16 rookies and two new assistant coaches, we still passed the test with a gold medal in the final against the United States." Looking to the future of the national women's team, Miller sees the need to move on. "For the past two years, we've been evaluating and initiating players at an introductory level," adds Miller. "We're now going to take these players to the next level of preparation for international games. "We've had the chance to decide on the type of team we want and which players we want to fill those roles." The type of player Miller looks for is one that combines size and strength with skating abilities for the international game, and its open-ice brand of hockey, and a player that can read and react to the flow of the game. The former Calgary police officer will oversee the whole plan for the 1996 team, but she has strong support from Mel Davidson providing player evaluation, scouting, and video, and Karen Hughes playing a strong technical role, and preparing the on ice practice plans. The 1996 Canadian Pacific Rim team includes goalkeeper Manon Rhéaume, and three-time gold medalists Angela James, France St-Louis, Judy Diduck, Geraldine Heaney, and Stacy Wilson. Team Canada's 1996 roster is as follows: Goalkeepers (2) - Danielle Dube, Vancouver; Manon Rhéaume, Charlesbourg, Que. Defence (6) - Therese Brisson, Fredericton, N.B.; Cassie Campbell, Brampton, Ont.; Judy Diduck, Sherwood Park, Alta.; Rebecca Fahey, Sackville, N.B.; Geraldine Heaney, Weston, Ont.; Fiona Smith, Edmonton. Forwards (12) - Nancy Deschamps, Montreal; Nancy Drolet, Drummondville, Que.; Lori Dupuis, Williamstown, Ont.; Danielle Goyette, St. Nazaire, Que.; Marianne Grnak, Richmond Hill, Ont.; Angela James, Thornhill, Ont.; Luce Letendre, Brossard, Que.; Karen Nystrom, Scarborough, Ont.; Laura Schuler, Scarborough, Ont.; France St. Louis, St. Hubert, Que.; Hayley Wickenheiser, Calgary; Stacy Wilson, Moncton, N.B.
