Seahawks start training

The young footballers will be training through January to February for the upcoming spring season

The Sooke Seahawks have started their cross training program to prepare for the upcoming season.

According to coach Andy Carrier, the clinics works on areas like conditioning and strength training.

The kids received the opportunity to work  with coach Tim Kearse, a former wide receiver with the CFL and NFL.

Carrier said he saw rapid improvement in the young players after they trained with Kearse for just 45 minutes.

“It was night and day. The posture, the speed, the everything.”

Carrier added it has been nice to watch the players, who range between the ages of 7 to 14, interact.

“It’s amazing to watch them interact, the older kids were helping the little guys.”

The Sooke Seahawks will be training twice a week from Jan. 17 to Feb. 28.

The spring season will begin on the first weekend of March.
