Due to inclement weather the practice scheduled for May 1st 2019 is cancelled. The practice is now moved to next Tuesday, May the 7th 2019.
The Bulldogs are excited to say the snow is clearing and we now how our fields booked so now we need to get everyone in to equipment so we are ready to go! We will be having two days for equipment handout. The first is Tuesday April 23, 2019 at Krown rustproofing on Gormanville road from 6-7. If you can not make that one for whatever reason there will be a second one April 30, same time and place. JV and SV please remember you will need to have a girdle (source for sports has a few options for you if you don’t have one yet). Bantams will receive football pants with pads in them so do not need a girdle.
Below is a list of practices for the May Training camp leading up to the first games. Training camp practices will be at Omischl and then start May 22 at Rollie Fisher behind the memorial gardens. I know the training camp is a lot of football but in order to be prepared and have everyone safe and ready to play it is necessary to cram as many in as possible. Bantams get 14 practices before game one, JV gets 11 before game one and SV gets 13 before game one. So please if at all possible try to be at every practice. After training camp and starting May 22 on practices will be on a regular schedule as per below.
