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.
