Registrations are open, and going well for the Humboldt Broncos annual hockey school that will take place later this month.

The ice will begin going into the Elgar Petersen Arena next week in time for the August 21st-24th school that has become a solid fundraiser and community event over the past few years.

It will also be one of the first tours of duty for newly hired assistant coach Mark Cross. General Manager Darcy Haugan spoke Tuesday for the first time since replacing Brayden Klimosko.

"We think we're getting another outstanding man of character which is huge for us, obviously character determines success. Mark is hungry, we feel he is a great fit with our organization and we're excited to have him."

Cross will help out with the camp that will feature over 100 kids from senior novice(2010 born) to peewee players. Haugan explains more about the three days.

"It's been a real highlight for our organization over the last few years and we expect to continue that. We're half full right so we've got some room for all age groups. It should be a really exciting week, it's been a real positive hockey school, the guys do a great job."

The cost is $250, that includes eight hours of on-ice training covering a number of areas such as skating, passing and puck control. A "controlled" game will conclude the school.
