Philosophy of Junior Ravens Football
The preparatory period is scheduled in the early part of the program. During this period, the technical and tactical skills will be taught with an emphasis on reviewing football as a contact sport. Whatever the level of the player, this period will allow adequate familiarization prior to playing situations. For players with a little experience, it will be a period of improvement.
During the first weekend, all players will be assessed on different physical and technical abilities. Some assessments will be administered during the preparatory period. The results will be recorded in order to balance the caliber of teams in the league. The age, experience and technical competencies (throwing, catching, blocking and tackling) and physical qualities (strength, endurance, agility and speed) will be evaluated. Equitable sharing of all resources will be made during the formation of teams.
Junior Ravens Football offers each player the opportunity to play several positions to acquire the technical and tactical skill-sets that are essential to experiencing a long-term football pursuit.
- Equipment: Each player will receive full equipment from the program. Participants will only be required to bring proper footwear.

Hi, I’d first like to thank you very much for the football camp. It is in fact the very first sport that we’ve been able to get Noah involved in.
Not only that, he looked up to his coaches and genuinely loved it.
My older son plays competitive hockey all year round, with soccer, and other sports somehow mixed in there as well, but Noah has never been interested in playing anything.
Then he asked me to play football and your camp was the only available place for him to play. He only turned six two days before the camp began.
I will say this much, having played up until junior hockey myself, and having had my older son in numerous camps as well, this football experience was absolutely the best camp I’ve ever had a child involved in
Great organization, great motivating, and excellent teaching. And again, my son Noah, who doesn’t like sports, loved it!
We will be returning next year for sure, and thank for the great time.
– Vince Gravel
