The Red Deer Rebels are gearing up for the start of the 2017/18 season as training camp begins next week.

The pre-season begins a week after where the Rebels will play five games, three of which are at home.

  • Friday, Sept. 8 @ Tri-City at 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, Sept. 9 @ Portland at 3 p.m.

Before playing in any pre-season games, the Rebels will first face each other in a Black and White game on Wednesday, Aug. 30 at the Centrium at 7 p.m. Admission is $2 at the door in support of the Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity.

Rebels fans will get their first taste of regular season action Sept. 23, as Red Deer hosts the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Red Deer Advocate Home Opener.
