2013 Pro Placement Camp
Do you believe you have what it takes to be a pro hockey player? The Jackals are giving you the chance to achieve the dream at their Eighth-Annual Pro Placement Camp. A minimum of three players will be chosen from the camp to attend the Jackals' main training camp in preparation for the 2013-14 season. It takes place August 30 to September 1, 2013 at First Arena's Recreational Rink.
The Pro Placement Camp will feature at least four on ice sessions for all participants. A majority of the on ice sessions will be game situation evaluation with three scrimmages scheduled to take place. There are also goalie-specific workouts on the slate. Players will be evaluated by Jackals head coach Dwight Mullins and general manager Robbie Nichols as well as other professional coaches and scouts from other teams and leagues.
Participants in past Jackals Pro Placement Camps have gone on to play in the ECHL, Central Hockey League, Southern Professional Hockey League, and Federal Hockey League.
All Pro Placement Camp sessions will take place on the First Arena Rec Rink and will be free and open to the general public. Media members planning to cover the Pro Placement Camp are asked to contact Ray Schmitt to schedule interviews.
Limited spots are available for forwards, defensemen, and goaltenders, and the registration deadline is August 16, 2013.
