Greater Victoria Minor Football Association is hosting a spring training camp at Bear Mountain Stadium on Saturday.

About 100 kids ages seven to 13 are expected to attend and learn the fundamentals of tackle football.

Coaches will break down basic tackling, blocking, passing, catching, ball handling, and coverages.

This year’s camp will feature help from Mount Doug Rams and Belmont Bulldogs veterans. Team Canada U15 head coach Paul Orazietti, formerly of the West Shore Rebels, will be helping out.

Parents with a child interested in playing tackle football can register at the camp. Practices run through March in preparation for the season, which runs from March to June.

The training camp is on Feb. 25, 4 to 8 p.m. at Bear Mountain Stadium at City Centre Park in Langford.
