Six Players and Four Staff Members to Represent USA Hockey at High-Performance Camp

USA Hockey announced today that six players and four staff members will participate in the 2016 International Ice Hockey Federation Women’s High-Performance Camp from July 9-16 at the Sport Institute of Finland in Vierumaki, Finland. The camp provides select players from 15 nations with a training program that creates the proper environment for success as elite women's ice hockey players, both on and off the ice.

The U.S. players are forwards Rebecca Gilmore (Wayland, Mass.) and Natalie Snodgrass (Eagan, Minn.); defensemen Grace Bowlby (Edina, Minn.) and Makayla Langei (East Grand Forks, Minn.); and goaltenders Morgan Fisher (Vernon, Conn.) and Beth Larcom (Middletown, R.I.).

On behalf of USA Hockey, athlete ambassadors Molly Engstrom (Siren, Wis.) and Lyndsey Fry (Chandler, Ariz.), strength and conditioning coach Jill Zeller (Newton, Mass.) and athletic trainer Deven Alves (Pepperell, Mass.) will take part in the mentoring program. Engstrom and Fry were members of the U.S. Women's National Team and represented the U.S. at the Winter Olympic Games in 2010 (Engstrom) and 2014 (Fry). Zeller, a strength coach for Boston University, has been involved with Team USA since 2012, working various camps and tournaments. Alves, the head athletic trainer with the Tucson Roadrunners of the American Hockey League, has worked with USA Hockey at select camps over the past few seasons, including the 2015 IIHF High-Performance Camp that was hosted in Lake Placid, New York.

NOTESReagan Carey (Colorado Springs, Colo.), USA Hockey's director of women's hockey, serves on the IIHF Women's Committee, which initiated the High Performance Camp. For complete camp details, click here.
