15 year old Kale Lavallee will go to play for Team Central at the Alberta Cup near the end of this month in Canmore.

The young athlete has played for the Red Deer Rebels Bantam AAA this past season and is looking forward to playing for the Alberta Cup.

Playing for Team Central Kale will face many highly competitive games in the near future.

Many of the top scouts will be at the games, making it an opportunity for players to showcase their skills said Kale’s mother Sherri.

“It is a season ending exhibition of top prospects for the spring Western Hockey League bantam draft,” Sherri said. “It’s kind of a big deal.”

All the top teams from the zones will go and play against each other. It’s an opportunity for them to showcase themselves in front of scouts.

Sherri said her son is incredibly excited to have made the team and to be going to play some competitive hockey.

Kale said he plans on doing his best, which will allow him to walk away feeling proud that he did the best he could. He said he also wants to continue to grow in the sport.

“He just wants to continue to grow and develop and do a sport he loves to do,” Sherri said.

Going to play on Team Central Kale will further learn skills in leadership, hard work, dedication and how hard he will have to train for advanced levels.

“It shows them a lot of dedication to sport and what is involved to take it to the next level,” Sherri said.

Reaching this level of hockey is what Kale aspires to do. Sherri said he puts the effort in and makes it all happen.

Kale said going to the tryouts was difficult as the skill level of those in attendance along with the competition was very high.

Going to play for Team Central Kale said he hopes to meet new friends and play some of the best hockey he has been exposed to so far.

“I want to play my best and meet a bunch of new guys and hopefully we can win it,” Kale said.

He will play defense and said he expect a lot of good competition in playing the games, as well as having a lot of fun.

To prepare for the games Kale said he will work out and practice.

“I will play as good as I can and make stuff happen out there,” Kale said.
