Preview - 14U Western National Championships

After months of provincial competition, the 2018 14U Western National Championship begins this weekend in Edmonton with eight boys and eight girls’ teams competing against one another for the title of Western National Champion.

The 2018 Western National Championships will feature teams from all four western provinces. Teams qualified for the Finals through their performance in the three western provincial 14U leagues that take place annually in British Columbia, Alberta, and Manitoba/Saskatchewan. In 2018, the top three girls and boys’ teams from B.C. and Alberta, and the top two teams from Manitoba/Saskatchewan qualified for the Finals.

The tournament will begin with a round robin tournament. Both the girls’ and boys’ divisions feature two groups of four teams each, with each teams playing one game against the other teams in their pool. The top two teams from each pool will advance to the semi-finals.

The Pacific Storm girls will be looking to win their third straight Western National Championship. They have not lost in either of the previous two 14U Western National Finals, but they do enter as the #2 seeds from BC this year, having finished behind Fraser Valley in their provincial league.

On the boys’ side, the Calgary Wild will be looking to repeat as Western National Champions. The Wild have finished in the top three in each of the last three years and will be a favourite to win another medal.
