The 2012 Alberta Cup will take place April 26-29, 2012 at the Nicholas Sheran Arena in Lethbridge, Alberta. This will be the second consecutive year the event will be hosted in Lethbridge. In 2011, the Calgary South Flames won the championship after defeating the Northwest Sharks in a shootout while the event set a record financial profit netting more than $42,000. Proceeds from the 2012 Alberta Cup will once again go to benefit Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association, University of Lethbridge Pronghorns Alumni Association.
The 2012 Alberta Cup Host Committee is comprised of three groups; Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association, Lethbridge Hurricanes and University of Lethbridge Pronghorns Alumni Association. Hockey Alberta is also proud to have the Western Hockey League, Reebok/CCM, Source for Sports and Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation as event sponsors.
The Alberta Cup is the premier event in the province that helps identify the top bantam-aged male players in Alberta. It is well attended by scouts as they prepare for the Western Hockey League’s bantam draft. In addition to player evaluations, the competition is also an opportunity for administrators, coaches, trainers and referees to be evaluated for future positions with the Team Alberta U17 Program.
The Alberta Cup Program begins in March each year with close to 1000 players trying out at their respective zone camps. Each of the 160 athletes playing in the Alberta Cup is competing for one of eighty invites to the U16 Male Provincial Camp in July. The U16 Male Provincial Camp is the final stage in the first year of the Team Alberta Program.
Former Alberta Cup graduates include such players as Zach Boychuk, Jordan Eberle, Devan Dubnyk, Dany Heatley, Jay Bouwmeester, Dion Phaneuf, Scott Hartnell and Devin Setoguchi.
