VICTORIA ID CAMP
April 6, 7, 8 at Q Centre Arena in Victoria, BC
For 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999 Birth Years
Seventeen players from our current roster have attended our annual camps in the past.
Registration Fee: $250 +gst = $262.50
The purpose of these camps is to allow our Hockey Operations staff to identify players that are ready to step into the Grizzlies lineup for the 2018-2019 season and beyond. We sign the bulk of our players out of our ID camps and currently have 17 players on our roster that are former evaluation camp attendees.
Junior identification camps such as these are a necessary part to becoming a Jr. A player and every experience is a positive step in the right direction to reaching your hockey goals.
The Victoria Grizzlies current coaching staff and scouting staff will be in attendance for the camp and the coaches will be running the on ice sessions. You will receive an interview following the camp and receive feedback on your current strengths and areas to work on. The camp will also feature an Educational Session for you and your parents to bring clarity to the advantages of the BCHL and how it is a viable path to the NCAA/CIS and the NHL.
The Victoria Grizzlies are an organization whose initiative is to advance players onto college and pro hockey. Developing players for hockey and life successes is our motivation we are very proud of the countless number of players we have helped move onto the next level and the number of scholarships that our players receive!
NEW – BCHL U16/U18 Spring League Tryouts
The BCHL Victoria Grizzlies Junior Hockey Club will be hosting tryouts for the opportunity to play in the newly formed BCHL Prospects Spring League. This League will provide an opportunity to showcase the prospect player’s abilities and talent to our organization and the other teams in the BCHL
The tryout will be small with about 35-40 players. After pre-registration, we will shortlist players to participate in the inter-squad game scheduled as follows:
- U16 camp – February 27th 5:00-6:30pm @ The Q Center
- U18 camp – February 28th 5:00-6:30pm @ The Q Center
If you have any questions or you would like to participate in the tryout please send an email to [email protected] and include your position, birth year, current team and league you play for.
About Our Prospects Camps
Our organization has decide to take a slightly different approach to recruiting whereas we will start to sign and commit to players two to three years out so that we can get more involved in preparing our recruits for the rigors of JR A Hockey and College Hockey for that matter. We feel by having the Prospect Camp, with more individual time, we can secure and identify the next Grizzlies thru our new camp philosophy. With this introduction and proper tracking, follow-up and support we can help players at an earlier age on attaining their goals.
With this is mind it is a pleasure to identify you as one of those players we wish to invite and hope that you see this as an exciting opportunity for your future. The camp will include an up to date understanding of the NCAA program and its offerings. You will meet our entire staff and have the time to ask questions from training, school and even billeting. You will meet our senior management team and have time to tour the facility and see firsthand what we do for you the player.
The Victoria Grizzlies are proud of our tradition of putting kids on to the next level and looking at our recent track record of players such as the Benn’s, Barrie, Bozak, O’Byrne, Pettinger, DeJong, Zanon, and Voros to name just a few.
