1997 USA Hockey Women's National Festival

The 1997 USA Hockey Women's National Festival was held in Lake Placid, N.Y., from August 21-26, 1997. The Festival served as part of the selection process for the 1998 U.S. Olympic Women's Ice Hockey Team. A total of 54 players were selected to participate in the Festival based on their performance with the U.S. Women's National Team, at the 1997 USA Hockey Women's Open Tryouts and at the 1997 USA Hockey Women's Junior Camp. The players were divided into three teams (red, blue, and white), with each team playing eight games during the Festival.

Of the 54 women at the Women's National Festival, 25 players were selected to train with the National team for the upcoming 1998 Winter Olympics.
