Winnipeg, MB – Stonewall’s Amy Martin has been chosen to represent Manitoba at the 2021 Capital City Challenge taking place in Ottawa, Ontario from November 26 – December 1, 2021. The 2021 Capital City Challenge is a four-team tournament featuring three men’s under-17 teams and Canada’s National Women’s Team. 66 players will be divided into three teams – Team Canada Black, Team Canada Red and Team Canada White – and will compete against Canada’s National Women’s Team as part of its centralization schedule.
“I’m really looking forward to it. To have an opportunity to skate with the National Women’s team has absolutely been a dream. It’s really exciting to be able to share the ice with those women,” Amy Martin said. “I’m also looking forward to the tournament being split officials with females and males. Getting to meet some male and female counterparts from other areas of the country who I wouldn’t otherwise have crossed paths with is something that I am looking forward to.”
