The fourth annual Canadian Blind Hockey Summer Development Camp returns
to Burnaby this week, with 25 players from across Canada taking part in
17 hours of on-ice training over five days. The camp is sure to develop
participants' individual skills, as well as continue to serve as a forum
to evolve the rapidly growing parasport of Blind Hockey.
After the players put in hard work training during the first three days
of camp, come cheer them on as they showcase their new skills with the
camp’s feature game taking place between 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm this
