“We are excited to host the top U15 AAA teams in Atlantic Canada. This is a premier event for this age group, and after the 2020 and 2021 Atlantic Championships were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are looking forward to an exciting weekend of hockey in Quispamsis,” said Brogan Bailey, Director of High Performance & Events at Hockey New Brunswick.
“Hosting a tournament of this magnitude requires many dedicated volunteers and the support of the community,” added Tiffany Green, 2022 host committee chair. “We are grateful to the many local businesses that are generously supporting the event and making it possible to bring this prestigious tournament to our local area. We hope to see many local fans in the stands cheering the players on.”
