A second Ponoka Broncs Virtual Camp has started up, and with some creative scheduling to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions and Protocols, it’s including some in-person dryland training.
In addition to the usual weekly chalk talk sessions, team challenges and individual workout plans, the two-week camp will include dryland training. The first dryland session was held on Feb. 19.
The football team is making use of the gymnasium in the old pink school, as allowed under current restrictions.
Right now, 10 players are permitted in the gym at the same time, so sessions are being held three times a day during the camp.
“This is an excellent opportunity to increase fitness and skill in preparation for our spring season,” said head coach Todd Lewis.
The cost of the camp is just a non-perishable donation to the Ponoka Food Bank.
While the team waits for announcements regarding restrictions, what the spring season will look like is yet to be determined.
Based on what he’s heard, Lewis is hoping the team will be able to at least play a developmental season, if not an official CAFL season.
