Westman Wildcats update
Dec 12, 2012, 10:59 am

The Westman Wildcat organization started eight years ago to enable female hockey players in the southwest region of Manitoba to play at an elite level of hockey.  The intent was to provide an opportunity to keep the girls in their home region in order to give them same experience and exposure as other elite athletes in the province.

In 2009, the Wildcats won the inaugural Esso Cup National Female Midget AAA Hockey Championship held in Calgary, AB.  The tournament includes the top female midget teams across Canada.

Over the program’s eight year history, there has been over 30 wildcat players receive scholarships to CIS, NCAA Div 1 and 3 and ACAC scholastic programs.

This year’s edition of the Westman Wildcats has had a very strong year with the hope of moving eight graduates on to the university/college ranks.

Part of Wildcat tradition is to attend numerous hockey showcases in Canada and the US for exposure to the Canadian and US colleges and universities.  Showcase tourneys include the Swift Current Showcase (Swift Current, SK), St. Cloud Showcase (St. Cloud, MN), the Central Plains Showcase (Portage, MB), the Minnesota Thoroughbred Showcase (Minneapolis, MN), the Notre Dame Showcase (Wilcox, SK), and the MAC’s International Showcase (Calgary, AB).

In Swift Current, the Wildcats went 3-0-1 to win the tournament by beating the Regina Rebels in the finals.  In St. Cloud, the Wildcats faced a team from Wisconsin and two allstar teams made from Minnesota’s top female hockey players.  This year’s result ended up in being the best showing the Wildcats have ever had at the St. Cloud tournament.

In Portage, the inaugural Central Plains Showcase had the Wildcats face most of the teams that make up the Manitoba Female Midget Hockey League (MFMHL).   Some of the universities and colleges that attended the Showcase were Bemidji State Univ, Univ of Maine, Providence College, Northeastern Univ, Univ of Manitoba, Univ of Wisconsin-Superior, Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) to name just a few.

In Minneapolis, the Wildcats attended the annual American Thanksgiving Minnesota thoroughbreds showcase tournament. This is one of the most highly scouted tournaments the Wildcats attend with close to 50 University and colleges attending. The Wildcats went through the round robin undefeated and lost 2-1 in the final to Shaftsbury Prep.

In Wilcox, the Wildcats played five highly competitive games and ended up with three wins and two losses. Some of the schools that attended the Notre Dame tournament were Concordia University, Colgate, University of Regina, Dartmouth University and St. Francois Xavier to name a few.

Currently, the Wildcats are sitting in second place in the MFMHL, the Manitoba Female Midget Hockey League with five games remaining before the Christmas break.

On December 18th, the Wildcats will host the annual Christmas alumni game. It's an opportunity for former Wildcat teammates to return home and get together to play a fun-filled inter squad game. The players look forward to coming home over the holidays and look forward to playing this annual event back in Hartney.

The Wildcats will be attending the Mac's International Female Midget Showcase that has fifteen top level invitation only teams in attendance. Over 60 different Canadian and US universities and colleges attend this event and it makes for a very competitive tournament. The Wildcats goal is to play in the gold medal game on January 1st at the Calgary Saddledome.

One other important aspect of the Wildcat program is to develop young female hockey players in the Southwest region and by doing so they host their annual Hockey Jamboree trying to get female hockey players ages 6-12 hooked on the game of hockey. In October of this year, the Wildcats hosted the OneGoal Try Hockey Day. It's a day where young players can try hockey for a day and practice and skate with the Wildcat hockey players. Each participant receives a complete set of hockey gear from the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) and OneGoal. The Wildcat players partake by being on-ice instructors and the coaching staff helping out as well.

At the end of the year, the Wildcats host their annual Prospects Hockey camp. This allows players to showcase their talents and skills to the Wildcats organization before tryouts in September.

The players are from places like Hartney, Virden, Oak Lake, Killarney, Brandon, Deloraine, Boissevain, Glenboro, Melita, Ninette, Chater, Douglas, and Souris.

The Westman Wildcats would like to thank and acknowledge our sponsors for their continued support.  Our Sponsors  make it possible for girls in the region to play elite level hockey and to stay in the region.  Check out our website www.westmanwildcats.com for a complete list of our sponsors.
