North Iowa Bulls Head Coach and G.M. Todd Sanden previews the tryout camp this weekend. Find out what players will be returning and what the Bulls are looking for this weekend.
The camp will be held in a showcase format, with six other teams also participating. The NA3HL’s Sheridan Hawks will participate, as will the Fairbanks Ice Dogs and Kenai River Brown Bears of the North American Hockey League. The Bulls and Hawks will each field two teams, while each of the NAHL teams will field one squad. The final team will come from Bowman Hockey, an advising and training program based in Minnesota that has placed more than 200 players into junior, college and professional hockey programs.
Spectators are welcome, with a $5 single-day admission cost for adults and $3 for kids under the age of 16. Weekend passes are also available for $10, and just $5 for kids. Admission for ages 4 and under is free on all three days.
Several health-related restrictions will be in place for the Bulls’ Main Tryout Camp. Socially-distanced seating availability will be in place, with the exact seating availability to be worked out in the weeks leading up to the camp, and everyone in the arena will undergo a temperature check prior to entering the facility. The City of Mason City also has a mandatory mask policy in effect for all buildings owned and leased by the city, meaning face coverings will be required while inside the arena.
