While Surrey’s Adam Svensson was the only player (male or female) from BC to make the National Amateur side, BC’s young women are a big component of the Development Squad.
Of The 5 young women selected to represent Canada on the Development squad, 3 hail from British Columbia, including Naomi Ko, Michelle Kim and Alisha Lau.
In all, eight athletes make up Team Canada’s National Amateur Squad, including four players on the women’s team and four players on the men’s team. The National Development Squad is comprised of 11 athletes (five women and six men).
