Several members of the WCIHL including Corbin Schneider, Clayton McPherson, Emma Hickman, Jordin Stinson, Killian Thompson, and Joey Hickman joined the Kentucky Venom travel team this past spring and competed in the NARCh tournament in Snellville, Georgia and the TOHRs tournament in St. Louis Missouri. A good time was had by all, and the kids learned some valuable lessons around teamwork and perseverance.

Junior’s member John Klein (pictured above 4th from the left) attended Farm Tough Hockey’s 2019 College Prospect Camp up near Milwaukee Wisconsin. The goal of the camp is to help prepare future student-athletes to achieve their goals of playing roller hockey while pursuing academic success. John spent 4 days at "The Farm" working on specific drills as well as fitness and nutrition. He had the opportunity to work with college coaches from Bethel, Michigan State, Kansas State, Lindenwood - as well as professional trainers. There were 40+ kids all of high school age and they stayed at the dorms in Concordia University in Milwaukee.
Bantam members Ethan Rubel and Michael Hepp spent 5 days down at Ford Ice Center in Nashville attending Gretzky’s Hockey School the first week in June. The camp was founded by Ty Gretzky along with his dad Wayne. The boys got a chance to learn from current and former professional hockey players to improve their individual skill, strength, and knowledge of the game.
