Finishing touches; players officially report tomorrow.

The Reign players officially report to training camp tomorrow for their physicals. On Friday, on-ice activities begin behind the closed doors of CBBA. Team President Justin Kemp told me that the main reason camp won’t be at Center Ice Arena (where it’s open to the public) is that it’s cheaper to practice on your own rink. Of course your home rink has to be available, too, and the CBBA surface isn’t needed for anything other than Reign hockey in the coming mornings.

So is the ice ready? Check it out (photo courtesy of Lee Calkins):
