Aldergrove youth Lucas Kawamoto is representing Team Canada U10 National Inline Team, July 10-13 in Corona, California at an International Inline Hockey Tournament.
Lucas also plays ice hockey in the Aldergrove Minor Hockey Association.
Lucas was selected to the U10 National team after a series of tryout evaluations held at the Hockey House in Langley. Players from Manitoba, Alberta, Ontario and B.C. were evaluated in their home cities and the final team was selected and announced last week.
Two teams will play in the U10 division – an “A” team which Lucas will play for and a “B” team made up of lesser skilled players.
This is the second time Lucas will represent Canada in the international tournament. He was also selected to a U8 National team in 2013 which competed in Huntington Beach, California.
Lucas is also part of a group of Aldergrove players who will travel to Japan in 2019 as part of the International Friendship Peewee Hockey Tournament for Ice Hockey.
