Pre-Camp Chat With Harvey Smyl

Training camp for the Chiefs begins today at Prospera Centre, and will run until Friday. The annual Crimson-Gold Game is set for Thursday, August 23rd, at Prospera Centre, with a 7pm puckdrop.

It’s certainly not the first training camp for Chiefs Head Coach/GM Harvey Smyl. He’ll try to build on last season’s team that won 33 games, and made a playoff appearance in a competitive Interior conference.

I had an opportunity to speak with Harvey a few days before camp opened.
