January 22, 2014, PRINCE GEORGE, BC (ISN) – The Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) have released information on the team’s Annual Spring Prospects Camp running from April 11 – 13, 2014. The Prospects Camp will be held at the Prince George Coliseum, the Spruce Kings home arena.
The Prospects Camp provides players with an opportunity to show the team’s coaches and management their ability to play for the Prince George Spruce Kings. In the past three seasons, the Prospects Camp has been very well attended with fifteen players signed directly to the team’s roster from the camp.
“This camp allows us to identify abilities and determine the future potential of players to play for us,” said Spruce Kings General Manager, Mike Hawes. “Selected players will be invited to attend our Main Training Camp in August and those that we identify as top prospects will be offered cards to play for our team directly from the Prospects Camp.”
“The Spruce Kings Prospects Camp became a turning point with my junior hockey,” said Spruce Kings leading goal scorer, Chad Staley. “Coming to Prince George and seeing what the hockey, the fans and the city were all about let me know that this was where I wanted to play. There are lots of opportunities here that simply weren’t available anywhere else.”
Open to players between the ages of 15 and 19 years of age, the Prospects Camp will offer players five ice times over the course of the weekend. There will also be a Top Prospects game on the Sunday to put the best of the camp up against each other.
Registration for the Annual Spruce Kings Spring Prospects Camp is now being accepted. A registration form can be downloaded from the Spruce Kings website at sprucekings.bc.ca or by requesting one from the team’s office located in the Prince George Coliseum. Space is limited and spots can only be reserved on a first come first served basis.
