Saint John Vito’s Preparing for Telus Cup
The Saint John Vito’s may have the shortest path to the TELUS Cup, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a few bumps along the way.
Every Midget team across the country shares a common goal – to earn a spot at Canada’s National Midget Championship, which will be played from April 18-24 in southern New Brunswick.
The Vito’s, as host club, have already secured their entry in the six-team tournament, and that creates some unique challenges for head coach Ken Dobson. His modus operandi at this time of year is to prepare his team for the long season ahead with three goals – win the provincial title, win the Atlantic championship, and advance to the TELUS Cup.
