Tryout Camps

The Bismarck Bobcats are combining their forces within the NAHL for multi-team 2021 Pre-Draft Camps throughout the Midwest, looking for the next wave of Bobcat players!

Every year, the Bobcats use their Pre-Draft Camps to identify top prospects for the upcoming NAHL Draft. Over the years, these camps have produced some major impact players in the NAHL who went on to play NCAA Hockey and beyond, including Ethan Gauer (committed to Alaska-Anchorage) and Tim Piechowski (St. Thomas) from last season’s Bobcat squad. The list also includes Dominic Panetta (NAHL All-Rookie Forward, Ferris State), Evan Giesler (All-Central Division Center, Air Force), Aiden Gallacher (Michigan State), Solag Bakich (Notre Dame), Jared Pike (American International College), Ryan Massa (Nebraska-Omaha, Orlando Solar Bears), and many, many more!

This season, the Bobcats are combining with the Minot Minotauros, Minnesota Wilderness, St. Cloud Norsemen and Wichita Falls Warriors for their Minnkota Camp in Hudson, Wisconsin, and their Motor City Camp in Detroit, Michigan!

Each camp costs $450 to reserve a spot. For more information, please contact Bobcats Assistant Coach Garrett Hendrickson, at 218-290-8942 or via email at
