As the hockey season is fast approaching, one Manitoba Bisons student-athlete, goaltender Stacey Corfield, is already on the ice and competing for a spot on a national team. The inaugural Winter Universiade Canadian women’s hockey selection camp is being held from August 11-15 at York University in Toronto.

Corfield, 21, heads into her fourth season with the Bisons and has an extensive resume. She earned Canada West conference first team recognition for the second consecutive season (2007-08, 2006-07) and was also named conference co-rookie of the year in 2005-06. The Winnipeg native was the first-ever women’s hockey player to be named Bison Sports Female Athlete of the Year during the 45 year history of the award in her sophomore season. In the 2007-08 season, she backstopped the Bisons to a CIS bronze medal finish, as she was the starting netminder for 26 of 31 regular season plus playoff games.  Corfield also led the conference with 1.55 Avg. with a 14-4 regular season record plus tied for Canada West lead with .927 Save Pct. and most shutouts with four.

There are twenty players attending the selection camp and seeking a spot (20 players will be selected) on the Canadian roster for the 2009 FISU (International University Sports Federation) Winter Universiade running from February 18-28 in Harbin, China.

The camp is held in conjunction with the Canadian under-22 women’s selection camp at York. FISU Canadian coach Dan Church (York University), who coached the under-22 team to an undefeated record last season in international play, will be scouting players from both camps to make his selections for the Winter Universiade team.

At the Winter Universiade Canadian women’s hockey selection camp, the representation of players consists from all four CIS conferences. The Ontario University Athletics (OUA) conference has seven players while the Quebec Student Sport Federation (QSSF) has six players, the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) with four while Canada West conference has three players.

Canada is one of eight teams competing in the first women’s hockey tournament at a Winter Universiade. All players must be full-time students at a CIS school.
