The Cents are back.

The longest continuously operating franchise in the BCHL announced the dates for their summer identification camp this week, to be held from July 17 to July 19.

This year’s camp will go down at the Summit Centre in Abbotsford.

Business Operations Manager Jared Thomas said there will certainly be safety precautions and social distancing guidelines during camp, though the exact parameters are yet to be known.

“At this time, we are a little too far away to say for sure what they will be,” said Thomas.

Thomas said staff have been in contact with another BCHL team that has created a return-to-play plan: one that includes separate entrances and dressing rooms for teams, and players staggered for as little overlap as possible and allowing times for cleaning in between.

As for a measure Thomas is sure will be taken by the Cents already, camp teams will be staying together for the duration of the camp. There will also be a limited number of players allowed, on a first come, first serve basis.

“At the end of the day, a lot of it goes back to ‘tracing’, and if there were to be an outbreak, how to limit it to as many people as possible,” said Thomas.

A link to the form to sign up can be found on the Centennials’ website, and can be emailed to [email protected]. The cost for the camp is $350.

A goalie session will go down on the Friday evening, where the number of goaltenders will be cut down to ten for the remaining weekend sessions.
