“Vanderhoof is a great hockey community, and this Jamboree will give us a chance to show people how big female hockey is here,” said Lee Holland, president of the Vanderhoof Minor Hockey Association. “It will be a great opportunity for female players in the north to come together and have a fun weekend playing hockey.”

The event is funded in part by a legacy fund from the 2012 National U18 Woen’s Championship in Dawson Creek.
