BCHL: Alberni Valley Bulldogs are back for Summer ID Camp

Alberni Valley Bulldogs will host their first home game on Oct. 15

The Bulldogs are back!

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs hosted their annual Summer ID Camp from Aug. 28-30 at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.

Bulldogs’ coaching and scouting staff use the identification camp each year to evaluate new talent and build relationships with future prospects. The camp included fitness testing, camp games, an education seminar and an exit interview with Bulldogs coaches. It ended with a round robin tournament between Team Red, Team Black and Team White.

The camp was also a chance for the Bulldogs to debut the new LED lighting system at Weyerhaeuser Arena. The City of Port Alberni installed the new energy-efficient lights over the summer.
