Saanich’s Rosie Beale (Claremont secondary/UVic Vikes) is joining the Canadian Women’s Field Hockey Team for its upcoming four-game test series with the Irish Women’s National Team in Toronto from May 23 to 27.

Twenty athletes will be travelling to the new Pan-Am/Para Pan-Am Fields at the University of Toronto, the field hockey site for this summer’s Pan American Games.

Among those named to the team are Oak Bay’s Maddie Secco, a Standford NCAA player, and team captain Kate Gillis.

In addition to being an opportunity to test out the Pan American Games venue, the team will be using the Ireland series as preparation to compete in the World League Semifinals – a 2016 Olympic qualifier – in Valencia, Spain from June 10th-21st.

Eighteen athletes will be named to the touring roster that will represent Canada in Spain. The top three finishers of that tournament earn a spot to the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Rio de Janerio, Brazil.

The Toronto Series with Ireland consists of four matches to be played May 23rd and 24th (3:00pm), and May 26th and 27th (6:00pm). A team of Canadian officials consisting Denise Pelletier, Megan Robertson, Ozias D’Souza, Trevor Martin, and Wendy Stewart will be overseeing the tournament.
