TEAM BRICK ALBERTA
The 2019 edition of Team Brick Alberta comprises of 16 exceptional Athletes from all over Alberta. Their journey to get to this point started the weekend of December 22nd and 23rd, 2018 in Red Deer, Alberta where the top 130 prospects from Alberta competed in a provincial evaluation camp. We then journeyed North to Edmonton AB where we held the top 56 Combine Camp March 29th to March 31st 2019 at West Edmonton Mall. The combine consisted of small area games, Team practices, skill practices, positional practices, team building and games. The combine gave the staff the ability to evaluate the players in all environments that we feel are conducive to build a successful team. That process brings us to this exceptional group of athletes you see today. Our team moto is Row the Boat (One Goal One Direction). We wish all the teams good luck in the 2019 Brick Invitational.
