The Swan Valley Stampeders held their 2019 Main Camp this past weekend with three full days of exciting junior hockey.
Nearly 80 players ascended on the Swan River valley vying for a spot on the Stampeders 23 man roster for opening day. A well run and very structured camp was exciting for both the players and the organization.
Head Coach and General Manager Geoff Grimwood put his stamp on a great weekend after taking over from recently departed Barry Wolff.
The weekend was capped off by a White vs Black Intra Squad game Sunday afternoon at the Centennial Arena.
