As the 2015-2016 football season gets underway, the Stettler teams are training hard and practicing rigorously to get ready for their opening games.

“We would like to be competitive in all of the games that we play this year,” said Norbert Bahrally, Wildcats head coach. “Our goal is to make playoffs for our league and hopefully win our league and also qualify for provincial playoffs.”

With their first game in St. Albert on Thursday, Sept. 3 against St. Albert, Baharally is trying his best to get the boys conditioned, which he stresses is a vital component of the game plan.

“We run fourth quarter conditioning at the end of each practice to give our guys an advantage over our opponents late in games when we need to find the extra fuel in our tanks to get us through,” said Baharally.
