Location

Players can come to a registration table at the entrance to the turf field to check-in and register at the start of each day of camp. For those of you new to Mill Woods Minor Football, the turf field is on 23 Avenue westbound (parking lot between ball diamonds and turf field). Our Millwoods Grizzlies Bear Den is a trailer located in Mill Woods Park just north of the baseball fields, 7008 – 23 Avenue. You can access it from 28 Avenue by the east side of Holy Trinity High School or from the turf field parking lot on 23 Avenue. Spring Camp activities will be on the turf field.

Registration and Check-in will include the following:

  • Pre-registered Players can check-in (receive a T-Shirt and water bottle)
  • Non-registered Players can register and pay for Spring Camp (cost is $40)
  • Registrations for the football season will be accepted along with any outstanding registration information / payments
  • Pre-registered for the football season?
    • Pick up your Registration Manual
    • Pick up your Swim Tickets (It has been decided that we will join with Leduc and hold our fundraiser at West Edmonton Mall Waterpark again this year. As a mandatory fundraiser, we expect that each player will purchase and pick up 8 tickets x $10 each for a total of $80. You may sell these to get your money back or use them for a Family / Friends Night.)

Equipment

Football equipment is not required for Spring Camp. Players should wear appropriate attire for exercise according to the weather. Please wear cleats or running shoes. You will also need an adequate amount of water for the day and any snacks apart from what is provided at the end of the day. There is no access to a water fountain. Bottled water is available as a beverage choice with your hot dog at the end of the day. Some other seasonal items to consider for are hats, sunscreen, or bug spray.

Volunteers

There are a number of opportunities available to volunteer to complete the volunteer hours requirement of your football season registration. Volunteers are needed for registration, set-up, tear down, serving food, barbequing, to name a few. Please contact Raechelle Redix raechelle.ochoa@gmail.com to sign up for your preferred day / time / task.

Looking forward to seeing you all at Spring Camp!
