Raiders ready for fall football

The Comox Valley Raiders have kicked off preparations for the upcoming 2015 fall season.

The Raiders are looking to build on a successful spring and keep this momentum going into fall. The midget Raiders are also working hard to keep their win streak alive as they finished last season with three straight victories.

The bantam team (ages 14 to 15) and the midget team (ages 16 to 18) have already started practising as they prepare for their first games at the beginning of September.

These teams can be found practising at Bill Moore Memorial Park in Courtenay every Tuesday and Thursday  starting at 6 p.m. If you are curious about football come on out and check out a practice and talk to the coaches.

The peewee (ages 8 to 11) and junior bantam (ages 11 to 13) will gear up and begin practising in the middle of August. The exact dates will be announced soon.

The Raiders are always welcoming new players, and the midget and bantam teams have already seen some new faces on the practice field during the first sessions.

“No experience is necessary to play football in any of the age groups,” a Raiders’ spokesperson said. “All equipment, except cleats, is provided.”

For complete information on the Raiders and details on how to register online go to the Raiders website at comoxvalleyraiders.com. You can also still register in person at the Lewis Centre.

Information about the Raiders can also be found on the Raiders Facebook page “Comox Valley Raiders Youth Foot Club-Official Site”.

“Registering to play football for the midget and bantam teams is time sensitive due to the requirements of the Vancouver Mainland Football League, so please register soon if you are of the age 14 to 18 to have the opportunity to play football this season,” the spokesperson noted.

If you have any questions please contact the Raiders at vicepresident@comoxvalleyraiders.com
