Kendra Woodland of Kamloops remains on Hockey Canada’s radar.
She is one of 50 players invited to participate in the virtual BFL Canada National Women’s Development Team Summer Camp.
Hockey Canada staff will have weekly online meetings with players this summer until athletes return to university in the fall.
Woodland, a 20-year-old goaltender for the New Brunswick Reds, is one of eight netminders invited to the camp.
“It is important to recognize the accomplishment of these athletes being identified in our program at the under-18 and development level. They are a big part of our future moving forward,” said Gina Kingsbury, director of women’s national teams for Hockey Canada. “The virtual sessions taking place allow us to connect and educate our athletes on their development.”
Athletes will cover topics that include at-home-strength-and-conditioning plans, mental performance, nutrition, dry-land skills, skating simulations, team-building activities, short-term international competition preparation and meetings with coaches.
Woodland made her Team Canada debut at the 2018 IIHF Under-18 World Women's Hockey Championship in Dmitrov, Russia.
She donned the Maple Leaf again last summer against the U.S. in the 2019 under-22 Lake Placid series.
