COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - USA Hockey today announced the 30 players that have been invited to the U.S. Women's National Under-18 Evaluation Camp, Aug. 13-18, in Lake Placid, N.Y. The players will be auditioning for spots on the U.S. Women's National Under-18 Team that will take part in the 2013 Under-18 Series vs. Canada, Aug. 22-25, in Lake Placid. The 22-player roster will be announced on Aug. 19 with practice sessions starting that day.

The camp will open with testing on Aug. 13 at Lake Placid's Olympic Center prior to taking the ice on Aug. 14 at the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena. A full on-ice schedule is listed below. Players will be split into two teams (blue and white) for the duration of camp and all on-ice sessions are open to the public.
