Spring is here and that means the Central Alberta Buccaneers will kickoff their 2017 season soon.
The crew has been busy prepping all off-season in order to make another run at the AFL championship.
Throughout the winter, the Bucs hosted indoor workouts in Red Deer’s Westerner. The team aimed at maintaining momentum from the 2016 season — a season that saw the Bucs win all the way to the championship game.
“Indoor workouts reduce some of the off-season rust and help us keep in touch on a social level,” said Buccaneer Vince Roth. “Hanging out together keeps the brotherly bond alive which, ultimately, makes us a better team on the field.”
But now the off-season is coming to a close. On April 29 and 30, the Bucs hit the turf for their annual spring camp. The two-a-day practices saw the returning and new players run through drills, systems, and conditioning.
“Our goals for spring camp are to create a good atmosphere for players while maintaining our competitive edge,” said team captain Mark Fay. “This year is about coming together as a collective and balling out with our brothers.”
