Bulldogs host Spring Camp this weekend
OVER 70 PROSPECTS COMING FOR THE BULLDOGS ANNUAL
SPRING CAMP THIS WEEKEND
April 1, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are once again holding their annual spring identification camp in Port Alberni this weekend, April 3-5, 2015.
Throughout the weekend, over 70 prospects will be working hard to impress the Bulldogsʼ coaching and scouting staffs.
In addition to several affiliates from the 2014/15 season, there will be a strong local flavor of prospects from the Alberni Valley, including players from the midget rep team, from the BC Hockey Major Midget League, and from the Canadian Sports School Hockey League.
Scrimmage games are open to the public. Here is the list of camp scrimmage times:
Friday, April 3rd: 4:00-6:00pm and 6:15-8:15pm.
Saturday, April 4th: 8:30-10:00am, 10:15-11:45am, 5:00-7:00pm and 7:15-9:15pm
Sunday, April 5th: 7:15-8:30am and 10:00-11:15am
Over three-quarters of the prospects in attendance have been by team invite, in addition to a handful of prospects that took advantage of the open registration. The organization feels that itʼs important to keep the camp to 4 teams, which will help maintain a high tempo through out the camp and give each prospect plenty of ice time and, thus, a fair opportunity to showcase themselves to the coaches and scouts.
In addition to the camp scrimmages, players will also be put through fitness testing, baseline concussion testing, participate in an educational seminar conducted by Bulldogs educational advisor Tom McEvay, and a separate goalie-only ice session with Bulldogs’ goalie coach Alex Evin.
