Rosedale skater makes Team BC roster

Two locals will be involved in female hockey at next year's Canada Winter Games in Prince George.

Chilliwack’s Rob Boyd will be behind the bench, and Rosedale’s Kirsten Martin on the ice for Team BC at the 2015 Canada Winter Games.

Hockey BC announced the U-18 Team BC roster last Thursday.

Boyd will serve as assistant coach, working the bench with head coach Sylvain Leone (Winfield).

Martin is one of 12 forwards making the team. The five-foot-nine 1988-born forward will  play the coming season with the Fraser Valley Phantom in the BC Female Midget AAA Hockey League.

The 2015 Canada Winter Games take place Feb. 13 to Mar. 1 in Prince George.

The final Team BC roster was selected after a summer development camp that was held in July in Summerland.

Team BC will play at the 2014 Mandi Schwartz Challenge. From Sept. 18-21 they’ll be in  Regina, SK, facing off against players who’ve been shortlisted for Saskatchewan and Manitoba’s U-18 squads.

BC Hockey’s Female High Performance Program was established to identify and train athletes and team personnel for possible participation at provincial, national and international events.
