Headline: Thunder Cats to host Junior Prep & ID camp in Alberta
Secondary Headline: Creston Valley has joined forces with the VIJHL’s Campbell River Storm to hold a camp for midget and junior-aged players that will run from August 8-10 at the Flames Community Arenas in Calgary
The Creston Valley Thunder Cats are pleased to announce that the team is partnering with the VIJHL's Campbell River Storm to run a Junior Prep and Identification Camp in Calgary, Alberta from August 8th to 10th, 2014.
Registration for the camp is now open. For more information, visit the Events page on the Thunder Cats website or click HERE to be redirected to the registration page.
"We're very pleased to be running this camp in cooperation with the Storm and providing players with the chance to be seen by coaches from multiple junior teams in B.C.," says Thunder Cats head coach and general manager Jeff Dubois.
"We've had lots of Alberta talent in Creston in the past, and with the new import rules (which allow all Canadian residents to compete in the KIJHL as non-imports) this will be an area where we spend a great deal of time scouting and identifying potential players."
The camp is open to all players born between 1994 and 1999. Athletes who are interested in competing for a spot with the Thunder Cats or Storm in this or future seasons will be evaluated by team coaches, while participants who have already committed to a junior program for the 2014/15 season can use the weekend as an opportunity to prepare for their upcoming main camp in a competitive, junior-level environment.
For the 2014/15 season, Alberta residents born in 1996 or earlier are eligible to play junior hockey in British Columbia.
The cost of attending the camp is $175 and spaces are limited. All camp participants will compete in four games over three days, with the game schedule set to be released once teams are confirmed in early August. All sessions will take place on the Red Arena ice at the Flames Community Arenas in Calgary, AB.
