The 1st annual SPARTAN HOCKEY CANADA CUP will be held from May 18th to May 21st in Calgary, Alberta at the Team Canada Training Facility (WinSport Arenas – Canada Olympic Park).
The CANADA CUP will see some of Alberta and Western Canada’s top 1999 born and 2003 born players compete for the prestigious CANADIAN SHIELD.
The 2012 draw has brought some strong talent from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba to compete in both age divisions.
