WRBHA WOMEN'S BALL HOCKEY NEWS
Congratulations to Chelsea Purcell for bringing home a gold medal from the World Ball Hockey Championships. In 2011, Chelsea was rostered on the AB Rockies and during the tournament, held in Brampton Ontario, she caught the eye of Coach Pellerin of Women's Team Canada. When Chelsea returned the following year, playing in the 2012 National Championships with the AB Rockies she was selected onto the Team Canada Prospect List. Chelsea ultimately earned her spot and the rest is GOLD!
Congratulations to Melissa Hamilton, WRBHA Official, who represented Canada as the first female North American Referee to officiate on the World Stage. Melissa was selected by the WRBHA to represent Alberta at the 2012 National Ball Hockey Championships where her officating skills were noted by the Canadian Ball Hockey Association. The WRBHA then brought her name forward to the CBHA who selected her to represent Canada at the 2013 International Street and Ball Hockey Federation World Championships.
