The Fort St. John Senior Flyers have announced the dates of their 2019-20 training camp. It will begin on September 30 and run every Monday and Wednesday until October 16. Players looking to attend camp should contact Flyers general manager Lee Hartman at 250-261-9865. A CSA approved helmet with half visor is mandatory to play.
Flyers Head Coach Bryan Elliott, heading into his first year with the team, is looking for commitment from this year's group of players, and said commitment is the common denominator of all the past successes the Flyers have had.
“I firmly believe that if we can get a 100% commitment from our players, we will be successful,” said Elliott.
“I fully understand how senior hockey works, and that that family and personal relationships comes first, their employment comes second, and the game of hockey comes third. But there is no reason why each player can’t give 100% to all three. Time management is the key and if any player has a problem with that, I can help them ... If we get that kind of commitment, then the rest will fall into place. I’m coming here to win and it will be up to the players if they want it as much as I do.”
The Flyers have also scheduled a home and home exhibition series with the Dawson Creek Canucks.
