There is still time to sign up for the Game Ready Football Camp, happening May 17-18 at Bill Moore Memorial Park in Courtenay.

The Comox Valley Raiders Football Club is hosting the weekend event, which is for Comox Valley and Vancouver Island football players ages 12-17.

The camp features an impressive list of pro football instructors. B.C. Lions scheduled to appear include linebacker Solomon Elimimian, wide receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux, linebacker Adam Bighill, wide receiver Korey Williams and fullback Tim Cronk.

Also en route is two-time Grey Cup winner Will Loftus (2002 with the Montreal Alouettes when they defeated the Edmonton Eskimos and 2005 with the Eskimos when they beat the Als), Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive tackle Ryan Lucas, Edmonton Eskimos offensive lineman Justin Sorensen, and University of Manitoba quarterback Cam Clark.

Players of all skill levels will be taken through a series of drills to familiarize themselves with the game of football and build on their current skill level.

The Game Ready philosophy teaches youth leadership on and off the field and healthy decision making, a Raiders’ spokesperson said.

“Game Ready helps young men and women become mentally and physically stronger by creating a competitive, high intensity environment,” the spokesperson said. “This keeps youth focused and driven to become mentally and physically stronger than they have ever been.”

The camp runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days. Registration is $100 and includes all equipment except cleats. Call 250-702-5515 for more information. Registration is at the Lewis Centre.
