AUAA-AUHC Players make-up Team Canada and win SilverThe 2001 bi-annual World University Winter Games, also called 'Winter Universiade', was held in the surrounding communities of the city of Zakopane, Poland. The games ran 11 days from February 7th to 17th, 2001. The hockey competitions would be comprised of two groups with winners advancing to the medal rounds. There were two arenas in use, one in the city of Nowy Targ and the other in the city of Krynica.
Zakopane will host the cerimonies as well as most of the skiing events. Zakopane is in the South of Poland, bordering on Slovakia. The largest major city to Zakopane is Krakow, 140 km North, where most of the Athletes will fly into. Warsaw would be an additonal 350-400 km North of that.
This event is organized by FISU (The International Federation of University Sport), but each event follows the rules and officiating of their respecitive international bodies - in this case the IIHF (International Ice Hockey Federation) for hockey.
