Over 90 young men took part in the Olympic Source for Sports – Winkler Flyers Spring Camp over the weekend looking to leave their mark on the organization. Flyers Head Coach and General Manager Ken Pearson says he was very pleased with the camp, noting the future is bright for years to come.
With the majority of the players at camp still a few years away from competing for a roster spot with the Flyers, the Olympic Source for Sports – Winkler Flyers Spring Camp is primarily used to gauge the development of the clubs prospects and get a good look at the players eligible for this year’s MJHL Bantam Draft.
“We are very happy with how the camp went” stated Flyers Head Coach and General Manager Ken Pearson. “It was encouraging to see how close some of our older prospects are to making the jump to Junior hockey.”
The organization was very pleased with the turnout and competitive nature of the camp with over 90 players trying to earn an invite to Flyers’ Main Camp in August.
“Some of the top guys from the Spring Camp will get a chance to come back to Main Camp and compete for spots” added Pearson. “I think our fans will really enjoy watching some of these young guys play down the road.”
The Flyers organization would also like to thank Olympic Source for Sports in Morden for their sponsorship of the Flyers Spring Camp.
The dates for Flyers Main Camp are yet to be determined.
