Condors to host Open Tryout camp

CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The  Bakersfield Condors are giving aspiring professional hockey players the opportunity to prove they have what it takes, with an Open Tryout on Sept. 21 – 23, 2012 in Bakersfield.
The camp is open to all players 18 or older, and will take place at the Ice Center of Bakersfield. Players are guaranteed to get a minimum of three on-ice sessions, including two games. Goaltenders will get at least two goalie-only sessions as well and some will be selected for game competition.

The Open Tryout camp cost is $150 per person, and the schedule is listed below. Sessions will be run by the Condors coaching staff: Head Coach Matt O’Dette and Assistant Coach Kevin Barrett.
