Training Camp Announced
With high hopes for the season the Grande Prairie JDA Kings officially kicked off the 2012 – 2013 season with the announcement of their training camp.
Last season was the first of sorts for the local Grande Prairie Hockey Club. Formerly known as the Grande Prairie Wheelers the Junior B club in the city was reformed, reworked, and reborn as the Grande Prairie JDA Kings. A new management, coaching staff, and attitude ultimately helped the Kings to a second place finish in the Northwest Junior Hockey League finishing the regular season with 30 wins and 6 losses, one of the best seasons on record for a Grande Prairie Junior B club from Grande Prairie.
Despite the regular season success however, the Kings are looking to improve for the upcoming season.
“Anything less then a NWJHL championship will be a disappointment”, has been echoed by almost all of the Kings staff from top to bottom.
“We lost three over-aged players along with a couple to school so we’ve got potential for a lot of returning players and have had contact with players from the area and BC who are interested in joining our squad” said Head Coach Kyle Chapple.
Chapple said despite all the returning players anyone is expendable and he expects the competition at camp to be high.
We urge all potential players who want to be part of something special to register for our Training Camp 2012.
