The U15 Northeast B.C. Trackers held their 2020 training camp last weekend, September 12 and 13, ahead of the team's third season. The Trackers had 49 skaters take part, split into three groups so as to minimize contact with one another. It's one of the highest totals the Trackers have had at camp, with 16 players coming from Chetwynd and Dawson Creek.
"It's starting to really become a true zone team," said Head Coach Dave Alexander. "It becomes more of a higher level tier one team that way, with more depth, and we can feed better into the U18 Trackers."
The Trackers held ice times throughout the day on both Saturday and Sunday, and tryouts continued into the week. Alexander said the team is glad to be back on the ice practicing, but there is no information at this time as to when a season could start and who the Trackers will compete against.
Alexander said they will figure that out in the coming weeks, but the fact that the U15 Trackers had almost 50 kids out during a time like this shows that the need and interest for a U15 zone team is high.
