With 11 USPHL rookies on the the Premier team, and an astonishing 17 rookies on the Elite team, TBJ has been hard at work these first two weeks of the season getting the new players ready for junior hockey. While the arduous training camp has come to an end, the mission of turning a group of players into a team has shown to be successful already. Both teams boast a roster full of driven young men, who all share the same goal of furthering their hockey careers. The camaraderie amongst players on and off the ice is apparent already.
A pair of games against the University of South Florida this past saturday proved invaluable for both Premier and Elite in different aspects. Playing against older competition early on allows you to see exactly where you are at, and what adjustments must be made to be successful.
TBJ goes into this week firing on all cylinders, in preparation for a weekend series against the Florida Junior Blades to officially open the USPHL regular season!
