Stettler’s PeeWee Panthers practice for the upcoming season

Stettler minor football teams gear up for jamboree

On Monday, PeeWee Panthers took to the Waverly/Elks Field being trained for the upcoming jamboree on June 10.

On any given Monday, leading up to the football season, all the football fields in Stettler are packed with action, as the coaches rigorously train young minds for the ensuing games of the year.

It was no different this Monday, May 29, as PeeWee Panthers took to the Waverly/Elks Field being trained in fundamentals.

“This early in the spring season we’re still teaching the kids fundamentals basic football skills; but what’s really exciting about this year is how quickly the kids are picking it up,” said Kirk Black, O-Line Coach. “We as coaches are able to move into play install already and make corrections on both the basic skills as well as what went wrong on a play at the same time, and the kids are able to correct both.”

According to Blake, part of this can be attributed to the Atom program introduced last year, which taught most of these kids the right fundamentals, but the rest is just a reflection of what a talented group of players these kids are.

“Moving forward from now to the end of spring camp we will be concentrating on the players’ discipline and attention, so we can install more plays leading up to our jamboree games here in Stettler on Saturday, June 10,” Blake added.
