The quest to restore a football program in Cranbrook continues to make strides.
The Rocky Mountain Rams wrapped up its Youth and Junior practice sessions last week.
Coordinator Daniel Harrick says 17 kids came out for sessions in June.
“I think we’re building a solid base for the future.” says Harrick. “Like any program things take time to build and it’s hard to just take off right away at full speed so we are trying to build the program up with a solid base of youth and also get those older kids some experience in tackle football before they graduate.”
The Rams are still in the process of acquiring equipment for tackle football and are actively seeking partnerships to assist in funding.
“We’re hoping that we can get it in place.” says Harrick. “If we don’t have the funding we’re not going to be able to provide the opportunity for the kids this fall so we’re still striving for that September start date but we have bit of work to go here yet.”
Practice for the Senior Rams program begins in August.
