The Revolution Junior A Hockey Club is set to commence their first year of existence-and it's time to select the team. All of the hard work put into preparing for this moment will finally be realized. With a lot of local talent to choose from-and some returning players from Major Junior hockey-the team will find out how they match up against the rest, as they prepare for battle in the Labour Day Classic Tournament.
Among the 40+ training camp attendees are top prospects DJ Roberts and his best friend, Brad Martinsen, who come to camp after leading the local AAA Minor Midget hockey team to the Ontario Championships. Both players were highly sought-after in the Major Junior priority draft, but with both chasing the possibility of a scholarship in the United States, they relish the idea of playing for the new hometown team. With promising careers in front of them, will they show that they have what it takes to play at the next level?

It is not easy and many have hit barriers-including myself-that were seemingly unbreakable. My hope is that I can inspire young hockey players to persevere and never lose track of their goals!
