HockeyQuebecin partnership with Hockey Bas-Saint-Laurent and Tanguayis proud to announce the holding of the very first Tanguay Women’s Hockey Championship which will be held from 1uh as of July 3, 2022 to Desjardins Complex from Rimouski.
This high-level competition will bring together the best players born in 2007-2008 from (12) regions divided according to the territories of the Quebec Games.
The regions participating in the Tanguay Women’s Hockey Championship will therefore be Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Capitale-Nationale, Chaudière-Appalaches, Côte-Nord, Est-du-Québec, Estrie, Lac St-Louis, Lanaudière, Laurentides, Laval, Outaouais and the Southwest.
Throughout the weekend, the twelve (12) regional teams will compete in a tough tournament, comprising between three (3) and five (5) games, in order to crown a champion team.
“Following the cancellation of Quebec Games for a second consecutive year, the region Hockey Bas-Saint-Laurent proposed this alternative in order to highlight female hockey players of this age group. The Quebec Games represent not only a unique experience, but also an opportunity for significant visibility with HockeyQuebec and recruiters”, underlines the hockey director of the Federation, M Marcel Patenaude.
“Furthermore, in some regions, many players rarely have the opportunity to participate in big women’s hockey events like this. We are therefore happy to be able to offer this opportunity to female hockey players,” adds Mr Patenaude.
Hockey Quebec would like to thank Tanguay which, thanks to its financial support, largely contributed to the success of this event for the players.
The Federation would also like to acknowledge the invaluable collaboration of the organizing committee, particularly Chantale Thibeault and Yannick Dumaisas well as all the volunteers who will be present.
