Nitros set for training camp

Roughly 40 Dynamiter hopefuls are attending main camp for a chance to crack the roster.

The Kimberley Dynamiters are preparing for the new season, and kick things off with training camp this weekend at the Civic Centre.

Roughly 40 players were invited and they’ll hit the ice for sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to compete for a full-time roster spot.

The Nitros have a new coach on the bench this year, as longtime Kimberley resident and former Kootenay Ice assistant Jerry Bancks took over the reigns in the offseason.

All players attending main camp were invited from a summer identification camp in Cranbrook at the end of July.

While Nitro hopefuls will try to make an impression at camp, Bancks will also have to see what happens with veterans who try out with Junior A or WHL teams.
