High school hockey players with the ultimate goal
of continuing their careers in college .
this was the weekend for you.
The Coulee Region Chill hosting a three-day futures
camp at Green Island.
It's about more than exposure .
they want to help the kids prepare for the next step
be it college or playing for a junior team.
Kids came from as far away as Alberta canada .
there were also 18 players from la Crosse area schools.
That partnership is important for Chill head coach
Degenhardt It's good to see the good turnout from
local kids here and kids that want to play at the
next level of hockey after they finish up with their
high school careers and it's nice to be able to sit
down and meet with all the kids at some point here
and kind of create that relationship with them and
get to know them a little better.
Ober It's kind of surreal I guess because never thought
I'd be playing for a coach that already coaches a
junior team so it's kind of cool to come out here,
show what I have, show the coaches up there what I
have to the junior teams.
