Monday will feature the team’s first practice, at 5:30 p.m. at W.R. Myers, as the team prepares for a May 15 jamboree in Medicine Hat.
“We’re giving ourselves four solid weeks of practice,” said head coach Garrett Simmons. “It’s a longer spring camp than usual, and we’re hoping to get some solid numbers out and get these kids exposed to a different level of football.”
The team will practice Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. each night at Myers, as Simmons added a few Friday and Saturday practices may be sprinkled in.
‘We know kids are busy with soccer and spring basketball, so we’ll try and figure out a few dates that work for everyone,” said the coach.
Equipment pick-up has been set for this Thursday at Myers at 8 p.m. Players who have not registered will also have an opportunity to sign up that night.
“It’s a great opportunity for kids to get a feel for the bantam game, get in shape and learn the offensive and defensive systems,” said Simmons.
“Hopefully, we get a few new kids to the sport and get a boost in our numbers. We’d like to head into the fall season with 30-plus players.”
Those interested can call Simmons at 403-382-0681 for more information.
