Throughout the three-day camp, more than 70 prospects will be working hard to impress the Bulldogs coaching and scouting staffs, assistant coach Adam Hayduk said in a press release.

In addition to some of the Bulldogs affiliates from the 2015–16 season, there will be a handful of local talent from the Alberni Valley with familiar names.

Scrimmage games are open to the public. Here is the list of camp scrimmage times:

Friday, April 8: 4:00-6:00pm and 6:15-8:15pm.

Saturday, April 9: 8:30-10:00am, 10:15-11:45am, 5:00-7:00pm and 7:15-9:15pm

Sunday, April 10: 7:15-8:30am and 10:00-11:15am

More than three-quarters of the prospects in attendance have been by team invitation, in addition to a handful of prospects that took advantage of the open registration.

In addition to scrimmages, players will also be put through fitness testing, baseline concussion testing, and sessions by educational advisor Tom McEvay, and goalie coach Alex Evin.
