Alongside hockey skills, leadership development is the other main focus of a hockey camp in memory of one of the Humboldt Broncos.

Adam Herold was the youngest player killed in the bus crash last April, and his parents were left wanting to commemorate their son in a way that best matched Adam's values. They are now accepting applications for their 2019-2020 Hockey and Leadership Development Program.

The program was hosted last year as well, the 3 camps took place in Montmartre, Saskatchewan and other surrounding communities. This year will see 2 camps on the schedule, and the camps pride themselves in not only building hockey skills for kids but also their leadership skills and confidence level.

Russel Herold, the father of Adam Herold, is the main organizer along with his daughter Erin. Herold's father stated the reasoning as to why they started the program. 

"The first camp we had at each community we showed the kids a video of Adam, to show them his perspective and values on life. At the end of the camp, we send home an hours sheet for 10 hours of community service at home. This builds strength in our communities and kids that realize they can be a leader no matter what."

When asked what it meant to him to be able to continue on his son's legacy, his response was simple. 

"The feedback we are getting from parents is great. From the sounds of it, the kids are actively doing their part in being leaders for the rest of their peers, which is awesome. It's our main goal here at the camp. The hockey skills are just as important, but so are ones that get used off the ice."
