Laurier football weekly update

20180323 - Kha Vo - Laurier Football 2018_-105Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

The first week of spring camp was fantastic and concluded with some very fun competition against the Guelph Gryphons Saturday morning at Alumni Field in Guelph.

Saturday marked our 16th practice since January, but the first against another opponent … so the excitement, energy and motivation was clearly up. Like any game/practice there are many positives and negatives to take away and some very valuable film to learn from in meetings this week. Here are some photos from the first week of spring camp and the Guelph practice. [View Fast Action Photography photos & Behind the Lens photos]

This week, we are back on the field and will host the Waterloo Warriors on Wednesday for a very similar practice to the one we had this past weekend. Both teams will take to the field at 5:00pm and all friends of the programs(s) are welcome to attend.

The competition portion includes the following: one-on-ones, pass skelly, inside run. Team Periods will be from 5:30pm – 7:00pm.

Here’s what is happening:
