The Drumheller Ban­tam Ti­tans be­gin spring train­ing next Mon­day, April 25 and coach Paul Redmond is al­ready see­ing the ben­e­fit the Ter­rap­ins pee­wee team has had on in­com­ing play­ers.

“The skill level is no­tice­ably higher and it makes things a lit­tle eas­ier for us,” said Redmond. “We don’t have to teach them a lot of the ba­sics like stances, block­ing, and tack­ling, and we are able to start work­ing on agility and foot­work.”

With train­ing start­ing next Mon­day, the Ban­tams will be get­ting pre­pared for a Jam­boree in La­combe on June 4 where they will see ac­tion against fel­low south­ern divi­sion teams, as well as check­ing out some of the po­ten­tial fi­nals com­pe­ti­tion from the north divi­sion.

Last year the team went 3-2 and lost one match by only one point, so Redmond thinks this team, which will have 11 re­turn­ing play­ers, will be tough com­pe­ti­tion for the start of the sea­son this fall.

The Ban­tams will hold their league meet­ing on May 7. The Ban­tam Ti­tans start train­ing for the fall sea­son next Mon­day, and coach Paul Redmond says the team has al­ready seen the ben­e­fit of the pee­wee Ter­rap­ins foot­ball team has had on in­com­ing Ban­tam play­ers.
