2011 Texas Brahmas "Making the Cut" dates set

At least two training camp contracts to be awarded

The Texas Brahmas have set the dates for the 5th annual Making the Cut prospect camp - September 23-25th at the NYTEX Sports Centre.

Last year, 31 athletes attended three days of camp with countless drills and multiple scrimmages as well as several off-ice activities. They were reduced to three finalists who were offered training camp contracts.

This year, prospects will attend an informational meeting at 7:00 pm on Thursday evening, September 22nd 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 and Athletic Trainer Tom Hart.

The camp will begin Friday morning and break Sunday afternoon when two athletes will be offered official 2011 Texas Brahmas training camp contracts. The Brahmas and all CHL teams are able to officially open training camp Monday, October 3rd.

Three 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 remains a member of the blue line to this day.

Applicants must be 18 years old or older to attend the camp. Athletes must also make their own travel and lodging accommodations. The price for the prospect camp is $200.

The application form and more information can be found here.

Space is limited, register today!
