FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northeast B.C. Trackers released their training camp schedule for the upcoming 2018-2019 season.

The camp takes place from August 24th to the 26th at the Pomeroy Sport Centre and will feature practices as well as scrimmages.

Trackers head coach Gerard Dicaire explained that the camp will feature approximately 44 players born between 2001 and 2003. Dicaire added that while the team lost two 17-year-olds, impact players Connor Bowie and Johnny Harrington as well as many more key components, they should still be competitive.

“We lost some key components from last year but I mean from previous year we had eight fifteen-year-olds, so we’re looking for those returning guys who are a year older with a year under their belts to step up and take over that workload,” said Dicaire.

Dicaire mentioned that this year’s camp will be very similar to previous years. The camp will see athletes practice skating, do battle drills and an endurance test where they will have to run three miles in under 22 minutes.

“Last year we put the kids through pretty upbeat practices, lots of battle drills and then we kick in an endurance test. Nothing to do with hockey but we make them do a three-mile run and it just goes to show who will grind it out. It’s not sport specific, it’s more of a mental test than anything.”

Registration for the camp is between 4:30 and 5:15 p.m. on August 24th. Residents looking for more information on the camp can email [email protected].
