Generals General Manager Flint Doungchak is the interim Head Coach while Jay Millerï¿½s replacement is being found.
"There are a lot of talented players participating in camp this week and we are excited in finding out what players we will take to training camp," Flint Doungchak said. "Last season, was very rewarding for our organization, but in our sixth season we are still looking to reach our goal by earning a berth to nationals."
The Generals are confident even with all the uncertainty that has occurred this off-season; the Generals will still be competitive this season.
"This off-season has had its trying moments with the rink and the departure of Head Coach Jay Miller, but we canï¿½t look at the past and have to move forward starting here at Main Camp" Doungchak said.
