With that in mind, the Moose Jaw Warriors will be holding a pair of training camps Aug. 12-16 at Mosaic Place with the goal of preparing youngsters for the new campaign.
The 2019 Warriors Kids Camp and Elite Conditioning Camp will feature instruction from Warriors associate coach Mark O’Leary and assistant coach Scott King alongside a host of current and former players, with the two events offering something different for each age group.
Fun and skill development are the goals of the Kids Camp, with players receiving two hours of ice time per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The camps will run throughout the day in three age groups: Group Rielly for ages 5-to-7, named after Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Morgan Rielly; Group Brouwer for ages 8-to-9, named for 13-year NHL veteran and current Florida Panthers forward Troy Brouwer; and Group Point for ages 10-to-13, named for Tampa Bay Lightning all-star Brayden Point.
Registration for the Kids Camp is $320 plus GST, with each player receiving a Warriors Hockey Camp jersey and tickets for an upcoming Warriors home game during the 2019-20 season.
Things are a little more intense for the Elite Conditioning Camp, with the goal of helping Bantam, Midget and Junior-aged players prepare for the new season with high-tempo practices and scrimmages.
Ice times are from 8 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. each day, with registration $275 plus GST.
Registration information is available online at www.mjwarriors.com or by calling the Warriors office at 694-5711.
