Fundamental football camp a success

Players and coaches enjoyed inaugural event put on by Comox Valley Raiders

THE RAIDERS YOUTH Football first fundamental camp proved popular with players and coaches.




The first Comox Valley Raiders Fundamental Football Camp for boys and girls ages six to nine was a hit with the kids as they and their coaches had a great time.

Each day of the April 2-5 camp ended with a flag football scrimmage and by the final day these kids were making plays. “At the conclusion of each day the faces were red and the smiles were huge – that spells success,” a Raiders’ spokesperson said.

Next up is the PeeWee Spring Football Camp which runs April 10 to June 19 Woodcote Park. The camp runs 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays and 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sundays.

This is for ages eight to 11. Full gear is supplied except cleats. Registration ($100) is at the CRA Lewis Centre in Courtenay. Included are team pictures, team bio books, awards and the always popular Father’s Day game and barbecue.

Meanwhile, the Raiders’ 2013 Spring Football Camp for Vancouver Island players aged 12 to 17 goes May 11-12 and will be run by Game Ready Fitness and Training.

Game Ready was founded by Will Loftus, former CFL safety with Edmonton and Montreal and winner of two Grey Cup rings. Accompanying him will be a group of current and former CFL players which at press time included JR Larose (safety, defensive back, BC Lions); Justin Sorensen (centre, Winnipeg Blue Bombers); Cam Clarke (QB University of Manitoba); Eric Taylor (defensive tackle, BC Lions); Ryan Lucas (defensive tackle, Montreal); and Tim Cronk (running back, BC Lions).

Register at Courtenay Recreation, Lewis Centre, 250-338-5371.
