Spring Camp Starts Today

19 days after the end of the BCHL regular season, a handful of Smokies and about 70 prospects are back on the ice beginning today for the start of spring camp.

It's the first opportunity for Trail's coaching staff to get a look at new players for next year ahead of the busy summer recruiting season, and one last chance for fans in Trail to get a glimpse of their BCHL team (in some form) before the Cominco Arena ice gets taken out for the summer.

I chatted with Trail head coach/GM Bill Birks yesterday about the weekend ahead, listen to that conversation here.

Here's a rundown of the weekend's events:

10:00 - Check-in
11:15-12:30 - White vs. Blue
12:45-2:00 - Yellow vs. Red
6:30- 7:45 - White vs. Yellow
8:00-9:15 - Red vs. Blue

8:30-9:30 - White practice
9:45-10:45 - Blue practice
11:00-12:00 - Yellow practice
12:15-1:15 - Red practice
1:45-2:30 - Goalie session
4:00-5:15 - White vs. Red
