PeeWee coaches Damon Gaudet and Bart Zowtuck put together and implemented a program of fun skills and drills while introducing the elements of football.

“As this was such a successful first year for the Fundamental Camp we will definitely be considering running it next year,” a Raiders’ spokesperson said. “Thank you to all the kids, coaches and helpers who participated.”
