Male U16 Hopefuls Gather in Regina for Fall Camp

* A previous version of this story listed the number of players attending fall camp to be 28. This number was incorrect, as the number of players on the roster is actually 29. - Sept. 13, 2019 9:34 AM

Thursday, September 12, 2019 – The Male Under-16, high-performance program is gathering in Regina from September 12 to 15. The 29 players participating in this year's fall camp are hoping to crack a spot on the 2019 Team Saskatchewan that is headed to the WHL CUP in Calgary, AB, on Oct. 20 to 27. During this evaluation weekend, players will take part in on-ice practices at the Co-operators Centre and team building exercises back at the hotel.

From Friday to Saturday, the players and coaching staff will head down highway #6 to Wilcox, SK, and play teams from the Saskatchewan Midget "AAA" Hockey League in a series of exhibition games. The opponents for this year's series will be the host, Notre Dame Hounds (Friday and Sunday) and also the Regain Pat Canadians (Saturday).

For these players, this is the final stage of the selection process that began with Regional Camps during the 2018-19 season. Following camp, the high-performance program will announce the final roster that will travel to Calgary and represent Saskatchewan at the 2019 WHL Cup.
