Great report...looks like alot of goals amongst the new recuits. Good size addition as well. Looking forewards to the new season.

I will wait and see what these kids look like at training camp and when the season starts. Let's hope the Vipers have done their homework and have the scouts that can get the job done and bring in some high end/elite players this season. The Vipers have been an average or below average team the past few seasons and need to put together a more competitive team this season. Since new ownership has taken over in 2018 the recruiting/scouting hasn't been great! Most of the Vipers high end recruits/committed players since the 2018-19 season have been average or below average at best and either cut/released during training camp or traded during the season. The ones that lasted the season were no where near the high end recruits/committed players most of the league's top teams had scouted/recruited. It seems like ever since Larry Black left the Vipers, Vernon has had trouble recruiting the high end/elite players like the Penticton's, Salmon Arm, Chilliwack, West Kelowna, Nanaimo etc.

The Snakes have a possible twelve players returning from last season. With the amount of new recruits/committed players, Vernon should have a competitive team. Viper fans also thought that the past few seasons and were left very disappointed. Were only twenty two days away from the first pre-season game, only time will tell. Fingers crossed.

Go Vipers Go!
