Saginaw mini-camp on tap for this weekend

The Great Lakes Bay Region will welcome the return of several Saginaw Spirit veterans and the team’s top ranked prospects for the annual mini-camp to be held this weekend at TheDow Event Center, Bay County Civic Arena and Four Points by Sheraton.

The players arrive Saturday to participate in a brief orientation and meet-and- greet before heading to TheDow for physicals and off-ice testing. The players hit the ice later that night for the first of two Blue/White scrimmages to take place at the Bay County Civic Arena from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The first night of camp wraps up with the Spirit awards ceremony held in TheDow Event Center Unity Hall at 7:30 p.m.

The awards ceremony is a special event for the players, season ticket holders, corporate clients and media to revisit the past season and recognize the team for its on-ice and off-ice contributions.

The mini-camp concludes Sunday with off-ice exercises and exit meetings.

The team will also participate in the second Blue/White scrimmage at Bay County from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
