Bradford Bulldogs gear up for new season
26 young ice hockey players have just spent a gruelling week on Bradford Bulldogs’ annual ice hockey camp, to develop and improve their skills in preparation for the new season.
The young people, aged from 6 to 14 clocked up over 40 hours training at Bradford Ice Arena, where they worked on the ice on their skating, puck handling and team work skills and off the ice at the University Gym, where they strove to improve their fitness levels and knowledge of game strategy.
Two of the older Bulldogs players, Harrison Walker and Jordan Griffin plus Kieran Brown (who recently gained an apprenticeship with Sheffield Steelers), volunteered their time to boost the coaching team and thoroughly enjoyed their new roles.
Andy Brown, Head Coach said ‘Our annual hockey camp is popular and well attended. We seek to develop the players both on and off the ice and our commitment to player development is reflected our winning the EIHA Award for Development for the past two years’.
All players trained extremely hard and we hope this is reflected in our games, next season’.
