BULLDOGS HOPEFULS HIT THE ICE THIS WEEKEND AT TEAM’S ANNUAL SPRING IDENTIFICATION CAMP
April 5, 2016 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 8-10, 2016.
Throughout the 3-day camp, over 70 prospects will be working hard to impress the Bulldogsʼ coaching and scouting staffs.
In addition to some of the Bulldogsʼ affiliates from the 2015/16 season, there will be a handful of local talent from the Alberni Valley with many familiar names.
Scrimmage games are open to the public. Here is the list of camp scrimmage times:
Friday, April 8th: 4:00-6:00pm and 6:15-8:15pm.
Saturday, April 9th: 8:30-10:00am, 10:15-11:45am, 5:00-7:00pm and 7:15-9:15pm
Sunday, April 10th: 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. As always, the camp is limited to 4 teams, which will help maintain a high tempo through out the camp and give each prospect plenty of ice time and 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’ assistant coach/goalie coach Alex Evin.
