Despite continuing uncertainty about whether games can be played the Yorkton Lady Gridders football program is gearing up for a spring season.
“We’re trying to get something happening,” said coach Tyrell MacLean, adding “with COVID we don’t know what’s happening.”
So the organization has decided to be ready. They are taking registration for girls Grades 7 through Grade 12, with the necessary form available at yorkton-minor-football.sportngin.com
There is always a place for new players too, noted MacLean.
“Girls are always welcome to come and try it out,” he said.
While actual games remain up in the air pending provincial COVID requirements, MacLean said they will hit the field “after the May long weekend” with what he termed a “developmental camp” for the players.
At the camp they will be restricted to groups of eight, social distanced from other groups, but MacLean said that actually “works well for football,” as they typically “break into smaller groups anyway.”
MacLean added they will of course be sanitizing equipment and making it as safe as possible for the players.
As for game play, MacLean said they hope the rules relax in June to allow for at least a couple of games this spring.
