Ponoka Bantam Broncs football tryouts April 23 and 25

Become a Bronc

In 2018, the Ponoka Bantam Broncs football team enjoyed its most successful season yet. Not only was it successful in the win column (the team finished with a silver in the B-division of the Central Football League with a 5-3 record), the Broncs grew as a program itself.

Each Bronc on the team grew as football players and individuals, greatly surpassing the expectations of their coaches. Their solid play, strong character, and dedication to the sport earned them the Most Sportsmanlike Team award for the Central Football League.

For the first time in the history of the team, the Bantam squad will enjoy a large roster of returning players. This core group of players will bring a wealth of football experience and knowledge into the team.

As a result, the team can continue to expand on ideas and concepts taught in 2018 (rather than have to start from zero). Additionally, these veteran players will help teach rookie players the basics, expediting their learning process.

Overall, this new group of Bantam Broncs should hit the ground running in 2019.

Any kids currently in Grades 6, 7, or 8 have the opportunity to become a Bantam Bronc football player on April 23 and 25 from 4 to 6 pm at the team’s annual tryouts.

At tryouts, athletes will run through a series of football drills that teach and reinforce basic football drills (catching passing, blocking, etc).

Tryouts are non-contact (players are issued team equipment the week after tryouts).

Those in attendance need to bring active clothing/footwear, water, and their parents’ contact information.

E-mail for more details.
