Minor hockey players will have the chance to get a jump start on the season with instruction from coaches

The Golden Minor Hockey Association in conjunction with the Old Timer Golden Nationals Hockey team will be getting young athletes back on the ice with and early season minor hockey camp to be held at the arena in Golden.

The camp will run from Sept. 10 to 13 and will be free for any player who pre-registers for minor hockey, and will be an economical price for any other players who want to take part.

“It is basically just to get our kids on the ice a little sooner,” said A/B head coach Curt Thorne.

He said there will be a wide variety of coaches at the event who will work with the young players on all the skills they require to improve at the game.

As an added bonus some of the Golden Rockets players will also be on hand to spend time working with the minor hockey aged athletes.

The camp will run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. every evening with every division having their own time both on and off the ice for training. With two age groups working together Thorne sees this as a great social event for players to come together before their season kicks off.

“It gets the kids excited about hockey and lets them get to know each other,” he said.

Anyone interested in knowing more about the camp can go to or call thorne at The Canyon’s Edge at 250-344-3693.
