Camps, Camps? Camps.

It’s been a busy week around the office getting ready for tomorrow’s big Hogs vs. Hosers Charity Game / Feed the Valley Night. Again, more information on tomorrow’s events can be found HERE.


Remember “Mr. Oh Canada” Mark Donnelly will also be signing the national anthem and will be taking part in the Hogs vs. Hosers game. Details on his visit HERE. 

With that out of the way, there is some on-ice news to tell you about, as the Vees have released information of the Spring Camp and Bantam Exposure Camp. These two camps are staples of the Vees spring and a kick-off to the start of the 2013-2014 season; already?   Both camps have grown to two of the most well attended around the BC circuit in the last few years.

The Bantam exposure camp is for 1998 born players only, as the Vees are looking for some of the top ’98’s to showcase over a two day period. This isn’t just for Jr. ‘A’ coaches and NCAA scouts, as the Vees invite WHL scouts and teams to come and take part in the two-day camp. There will be presentations by both Jr. ‘A’ and WHL representatives as they will educate future players on their respective leagues.

This camp helps identify players and can be a launching pad for them and their junior hockey careers. Camps in the past have seen quite a few players go on to successful careers at both the Jr. ‘A’ and WHL level. All the information on the Bantam Exposure Camp can be found HERE 

Two months later is the Vees 2013 Spring Camp, which runs May 23-26 at the SOEC. This marks the unofficial start to the 2013-2014 season, as Vees Coaches and Scouts look for players for the upcoming season. However,  other junior teams do attend the camp and will be watching, so there will be plenty of eyes on players born between 1994 and 1998. Recent Vees, past and present, who were recruited out of the Vees Spring Camp include, Joey Benik, Troy Stecher, Ryan Gropp and Chad Katunar; decent. All the information, including schedule, medical forms and application can be found HERE.
