Riders back to workPosted: August 22, 2012
By George Hurlbut
Fernie Ghostriders head coach and general manager Barry Wolff arrived in Fernie on August 18.
Wolff took over the hockey team in May after Will Verner left but spent the summer at his townhouse in Langley, working hockey schools there and across the province. He has also attended several BCHL camps and the U17 as well.
We are writing this because several people have been wondering why the new coach wasn’t here in Fernie. Rider fans should actually be happy Wolff spent most of the summer away from Fernie as he was coaching the very players he and the other Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) teams are trying to recruit and will now have a good read on the players who will be available after the BCHL makes their final cuts in a few weeks.
Wolff had little time settling into his new apartment as he was be on the ice on Monday, August 20 when the Ghostriders’ conditioning camp began.
The conditioning camp runs until August 24.
The public is welcome to come out and watch.
Monday-Tuesday- Wednesday -Thursday – Practice 6-7 p.m.
