2024 Alberta Cup Rosters Announced

RED DEER – Hockey Alberta has named the 120 athletes who are representing their regions at the 2024 Alberta Cup.

Two teams from each of the North, Central and South regions are facing off against each other in a modified round-robin tournament taking place in Red Deer at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre, April 24-28. Each of the six teams is comprised of two goaltenders, six defence and 12 forwards.


Athletes gathered at three Regional Camps over the weekend (March 29-31) in Calgary, Red Deer and Spruce Grove. Male players born in 2009 who participated in a Hockey Canada sanctioned program this season were eligible to try out.

“There were many talented kids from across the province who tried out for the Alberta Cup program,” said Blake Cosgrove, Hockey Alberta’s Manager of Elite Hockey Development. “While this opportunity focuses on player development, it is also another opportunity to evaluate players as we progress towards the WHL Cup. We are very excited for this age group to showcase themselves at Alberta Cup as well as future Hockey Alberta events.”

The Alberta Cup provides players and staff with an opportunity to experience elite level play in a short-term competition, and is part of the player evaluation process for selecting Team Alberta to compete at the WHL Cup in October.


Hockey Alberta’s Spring Showcase, fuelled by Gatorade, begins with the Alberta Cup. The Alberta Challenge (May 1-5) and the Prospects Cup (May 8-12) are also being played in Red Deer.

Partnership opportunities are available for the 2024 Spring Showcase and can be found in the document below:


The Alberta Cup aids in the identification and selection of potential players for Hockey Alberta’s Team Alberta program, with hundreds of players annually trying out for 120 spots (20 positions on each of the six regional teams). In addition to player development, the Alberta Cup also features opportunities for administrators, referees, coaches, therapists, and equipment managers to be identified for potential positions at higher level events, such as the World U17 Hockey Challenge.
