Billet families needed for Posse

The new sheriff brings a commitment to the club’s most critical asset – billet homes.

The first 6 weeks have been productive and promising for both new board and coaching staff.

The Posse has reduced the price of individual game tickets and season passes. Family game pricing will remain the same.

From Aug. 19 to 22, the Posse Minor Hockey Camp will be held. To date, 10 registrations from both local and out of town players have been received. Posse coaching staff are excited to share the ice with young skaters and restart a starved relationship with local youth. The camp is proceeding for bantam and younger age groups, and promises to be a balance of fun and fundamentals. Parents are reminded that forms can be found on Princeton Posse website or drop by the Posse office at the arena.

Posse Jr. Prep Camp takes place Aug. 23 to the 25. Registrations are being taken now for all Midget age or older players looking for up tempo ice twice a day ice sessions targeted to both Junior and Midget players. Local players are encouraged to participate. Scrimmages will be evenings and the public is welcome to come watch new and local players as they prepare for upcoming season. Forms can be found on the website or drop by the office and introduce yourself.

There is a new sheriff in town is an apt phrase. With a new sheriff comes a new look. Coach Rotheisler has confirmed a few returning players, but expect a new feel both on the ice and in the community with this season’s squad. Players will be visible and active in Princeton again. The Posse Main Camp takes place Aug. 20 to 30.

Come on out and get a first glimpse as players compete for spots on this years roster at Red vs White games on Aug. 29 and 30 in preparation for their first exhibition game in Summerland on Aug. 31.

The new sheriff brings a commitment to the club’s most critical asset – billet homes. The coaching staff brings a handout of expectations for each Posse player on and off the ice, and a record of follow through. Local RCMP member Anthony Pankratz  has taken on the role of liaison between players and the community, including billet parents. There are also now three directors tasked with the billet portfolio to ensure smooth sailing.

A huge thank you to all past billet homes! Billet families are needed for this season.

Training Staff Needed—A huge hole to fill is that of a trainer, or trainers. Requirements are pregame taping, injury assessment and general fitness issues. Anyone with experience and an interest, even if just for home games or some games or even just to seek information about is asked to contact the Posse coaching staff.

The Posse would like to welcome Associate Coach Mark McNaughton on board. He was on the bench last season with Coach Rotheisler in Comox Valley. McNaughton will become a recognizable face as he looks to make his home in the community and represent the Posse as liaison with sponsors in the future. His assistance in preparing the new professional approach to the team has been invaluable.

Watch for these future game day tent events, including food and entertainment, beverage gardens on weekend games (a revamped lounge area upstairs) intermission entertainment and other ideas that will be focused on creating an enjoyable evening for fans.

Volunteers will always be welcome. Again it is not just about the Princeton Posse, it is about the Posse in Princeton!
