Fundamental Football Camp (April 2-5; ages 6-9)

Boys and girls will burn energy in a fun and developmentally focused environment. Increase agility and awareness while building the basics of running, throwing and jumping; be introduced to the elements of football and engage daily in a friendly game of flag football.

PeeWee Spring Football (April 10 to June 16; ages 8-11)

Boys and Girls Tackle Football twice a week  for 10 weeks. Dedicated coaches stressing skills, fundamentals and positioning for beginners to advanced. Possible exhibition games with other communities. Highlighted with a Father’s Day, Kids vs. Parents Touch Football Game.

(Parents opportunity to show the kids how it’s done – ha! ha!).

2013 Spring Football Camp ( May 11-12; ages 12-17)

You want to play football and get some tips from the pros?

Comox Valley Raiders Football Association is pleased to announce that Game Ready Fitness and Training will be coaching the spring camp. Game Ready is founded by Will Loftus, former CFL safety and winner of two Grey Cup rings. Accompanying Loftus will be a group of current and former CFL players .

Game Ready reps (these boys have been there, done it or are there, doing it) include: Will Loftus (safety, retired, Montreal, Edmonton); JR Larose (safety, defensive back, BC Lions); Justin Sorensen (centre, Winnipeg Blue Bombers – a little guy at 6’8’’ and 318 pounds); Cam Clarke (QB University of Manitoba); Eric Taylor (defensive tackle, BC Lions – another little fella at 6’2″, 308); Ryan Lucas (defensive tackle, (Montreal); Tim Cronk (running back, B.C.).

Together with Game Ready the Comox Valley Raiders Football Club wants to provide a camp environment that makes a football player for life. A player that is committed to his team learns to value true teamwork and dedication and develops a work ethic that is valued by employers.

This camp is open to all players ages 12 to 17 on Vancouver Island.

Spring Football Jamboree (June 6-7; ages 14-17)
