The weekend of May 30-31 saw the Wetaskiwin & District Amateur Football Association hold it’s annual Spring Training Camp with 19 Bantam, 25 Peewee, 18 atom and 11 novice flag players registered.

In addition to the many dedicated and skilled WDAFA coaches and helpers, University of Alberta Golden Bears Football Club generously helped out with the enthusiastic young players who participated in a series of drills to refine the many individual and team skills utilized in football, as well as introducing some of the youngsters to the game.

WDAFA Coach of the Wetaskiwin Warriors, Josh Bishop, was one of the many talented and driven leaders who led the training camp over the weekend. Josh, also a running back coach for the Battle River Shock Midget team, was awarded his ‘Coach Of The Year’ plaque for his coaching of the 2014 Wetaskiwin Warriors in the Bantam Jackie Parker Division of the Capital District MFA.

The Bantam program is still recruiting for this year’s team throughout the month of June. Practices will be held at the high school Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8pm with Jamboree games June 13 and 27.
