This is an exciting time around our program as we start our spring camp this week. We will practice each night this week and conclude by practicing at McMaster on Thursday March 24th. We will then take a break for the Easter weekend and get back to work next week, concluding our spring camp with another combined practice – this time against the Waterloo Warriors on Saturday April 2nd here at Laurier.
As part of our spring camp, on Thursday March 31st we are hosting an on-field coaches clinic that is free to all coaches. Half of the field will be our normal Laurier spring practice while the other half will be dedicated to conducting a coaches clinic.
