Cougars look for junior hockey players

The Victoria Cougars are conducting a spring camp to identify potential players for their Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League team

Do you think you’ve got what it takes to be a Victoria Cougar hockey player? The Victoria Cougars have announced the dates for their third annual “Spring Camp”.

This camp is a great chance for players and parents to gain exposure to junior hockey and the Cougars program. In addition it will provide an opportunity to meet the Cougars’ coaching staff and several of the club’s Directors.

A number of this season’s players will be moving to Jr. A, the Western Hockey League, or college, leaving many roster spots open for the upcoming season. The team anticipates needing to replace over half of their roster for the 2015/2016 season.

Players from this camp will be considered for the 2015-16 team, and as well, they will be identifying players they may affiliate with the club for next season.

The camp will open the evening of Friday April 24th at the Wurtele (NADEN) Arena at CFB Esquimalt. For Saturday April 25 and Sunday April 26 the camp will move to the Westhills Arena in Westshore.
