The Castlegar Rebels have announced the details for its upcoming Main Camp for the 2019-2020 season.
The camp will be held Friday, August 30 through to Sunday, September 1 at the Castlegar and District Recreation Complex. Following camp, the Rebels will head directly into exhibition games the following week, allowing many players extended opportunities to earn their spot in the line-up. The Rebels are coming off of a rebuild season, which will see a number of strong returning players coming back to lead the Rebels this season. Head Coach and General Manager Carter Duffin says every spot still needs to be earned at camp. Our returning players will be expected to return with an extremely high level of preparedness, and along with any of our recruited or committed players, the expectation is every player in attendance will be expected to compete at a high level. Every player in camp (veterans, committed players, recruits) will have an opportunity to make our team, if they prove it, they will earn it. The Rebels will cap their camp at two teams to ensure the highest level of competition, and to give every player the opportunity to spend time and be challenged by the Rebels staff. Duffin notes that the camp will include fitness testing, practices lead by the Rebels coaching staff and intra-squad games, allowing players to showcase themselves to the best of their abilities in all aspects of the game. As a staff, we want to spend time and continue to build a relationship with all of our recruits during this weekend. We want to make sure they are the right fit for the Rebels program and our vision to move forward, which is not only on the ice, but their personal character off the ice and in the community as well explains Duffin.
