Minor hockey players registered with the Rankin Inlet Minor Hockey Association were fortunate enough to participate in their second high-quality player-development camp of the 2018-19 hockey season when the instructors for the Winnipeg-based The Rink Player Development brought their skill-development expertise to the community this past weekend.
The Rink features three high-level development directors in director of player development John Cara, director of female player development Addie Miles-Abbott and Mike Hellyer, director of TESTify Performance.
Hannah Siksik of the Rankin Inlet detachment of the RCMP took the lead in organizing the camp for the young players in Rankin.
