Victoria, BC- The Victoria Royals today announced the schedule for their 2017 draft, rookie, and main training camps set to take place at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

 

The Royals’ Training Camp will open on Wednesday, August 23rd with Draft Camp. This is for players selected in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft.

 

Rookie Camp begins on Friday, August 25th and concludes on Sunday, August 27th. The rosters will consist of players born in 2001 and 2002, skaters who have been drafted or listed by the Royals, and free agent invites.

 

Main Camp will be comprised of returning players from the club’s 2016-17 roster, free agent invitees born from 1997-2000 and selected players from this year’s draft and rookie camps. The players will be divided into three teams for on-ice sessions that begin on Monday, August 28th and run through Tuesday, August 29th.

 

During training camp, the Royals will honour three individuals from the organization who have volunteered their time to ensure that the players receive the best care possible.

 

Team Renyard is named after Victoria’s Education Coordinator Tammy Renyard. Renyard, who has been a member of the Royals since the club’s inception, is currently the Principal for Esquimalt High School and played an integral role as Victoria was named the WHL’s 2016-17 Scholastic Team of the Year.
