Rampage make preparations for August Training camp
The pre season sessions for the Rampage will get underway with the five day Lou Lemire Training camp, which offers up the opportunity for returning members to shake off the rust of the off season.
Any would be newcomers with ambitions to join the ranks of the Prince Rupert Rampage for 2014-15 will want to have the skates sharpened by August 18th as well, so as to be ready for the start of the Lou Lemire camp.
Prospective players for the CIHL squad should contact the Rampage prior to that date, to get more information regarding their tryout opportunities and what is involved for the camp which runs from August 18 until the 22nd at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.
The email address for the Prince Rupert Rampage is firstname.lastname@example.org
When the Rampage take to the ice later in September, it will be a slightly smaller CIHL that they will be playing in, with the Houston Luckies suspending operations owing to the closure of the sawmill in
Finding players to fill out the Luckies roster was proving to be a challenge that could not be overcome for this year.
With the departure of Houston from the CIHL circuit, the West will be a four team division, while the east will feature three teams for 2014-15.
A situation that makes the regular season drive all important for the Western teams who will be battling for two playoff positions in the seven team league.
We will launch our Rampage/CIHL review page in September, for those interested in the season past and any developments of the off season, our archive page for 2013-14 can be found here.
You can find the latest information on Prince Rupert's entry in the CIHL from their Facebook page, twitter feed or website.
