Bathurst to host 2019 Midget AAA Female Atlantic Championships this spring

Some of the best young female hockey players Atlantic Canada has to offer will be in the Chaleur region this spring.

The 2019 Midget AAA Female Atlantic Championships is being hosted by the Northern Lightning at the KC Irving Centre in Bathurst from April 4th to 7th.

Host committee chair Alan Hache tells the Northern Light that Bathurst was selected because of its infrastructure, accommodations, rink, and rich hockey history.

The top five teams in Atlantic Canada are expected to attend.

The Lightning finished in second place at the tournament in 2017.
