Making the Cut 2010 scheduled

Brahmas’ annual prospect camp set for September 24-26

The Texas Brahmas have set the dates for the annual Making the Cut prospect camp. There’ll be more information out on this soon but the dates are set for September 24-26th at the NYTEX Sports Centre.

Last year, 34 athletes attended three days of camp with countless drills and multiple scrimmages as well as several off-ice activities. They were reduced to two finalists who were offered training camp contracts.

This year, prospects will attend an informational meeting on Thursday evening, September 23rd at the NYTEX Sports Centre where coaches Dan Wildfong and Ron Vogel will lay out rules and expectations. Also expected to be on hand will be General Manager Mike Barack, Equipment Manager Phil Shipp, Athletic Trainer Tom Hart.

The camp will begin Friday morning and break Sunday evening when two athletes will be offered official 2010 Texas Brahmas training camp contracts. The Brahmas and all CHL teams are able to officially open training camp Monday, October 4th.

Two years ago, defenseman Ross Rouleau was on the receiving end of the "Making the Cut" speeches, and after a strong outing, an invitation to the Brahmas official training camp followed. Rouleau became a member of the 2009 Ray Miron President’s Cup Championship team and returned to the blue line for the 2009-10 season.
