There was a full house at the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena on the weekend as the male Under 16 Region Camp was held locally.
Players from Vancouver Island and the Central Coast were in town at the camp that is designed to instruct and prepare players for future opportunities in the High Performance Program.
This is a great opportunity for kids to play against players from outside their own association and for the best to play the best. Lake Cowichan was chosen because of the access to ice time and that it is a central location on the south part of the Island where most of the players come from.
You could almost feel the tension in the air as the players waited for their final interviews on Sunday afternoon to see who made the team. It made for a busy and enjoyable time for hockey fans around the arena on the weekend.
