Rams/Thunder Spring Camps This Weekend

Under the tutelage of first-year head coach Steve Bryce, the University of Regina Rams will kick off the 2016 season this weekend with the Laurentian Bank Securities Spring Camp from Friday to Sunday on campus at the U of R Field.

Bryce will address the players and staff at a team meeting on Friday at 4 p.m. That will be immediately followed by position meetings, and the first on-field activity will stretch from 6 to 8:15 p.m. on Friday night.

“The first couple of months I’ve been trying to get familiar with the program and with the University, but really this weekend marks the first moment of what I’m hoping will be an exciting new era for the Rams,” Bryce said. “Our goals this weekend are to establish the depth chart and trim the roster, and set the tone and expectations for our level of performance moving forward.”

Saturday and Sunday will both see the players on field from 10:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The Rams have 97 players on the camp roster, including 64 returnees from last year’s team. Among the returning players are nine offensive starters and eight starters on the defensive side of the ball.

A complete position-by-position breakdown for the Rams as they enter the Laurentian Bank Securities Spring Camp will be released on Friday afternoon.

The Regina Thunder have hosted three off season indoor workouts in Moose Jaw since January to identify participants as well as one out door session at Mosaic Stadium. Spring Camp will host approximately 130 players from throughout the province.

Schedule for the Spring Camp is as follows.  All events take place at Mosaic Stadium:

The Regina Thunder go into the 2016 season looking to get back on top of the PFC (Prairie
Football Conference) and Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) where they were the Canadian
Champions in 2013. The 2016 Regular Season starts at home Saturday August 14th vs the
Edmonton Huskies.
