The Ladysmith Steelers football teams enjoyed a very successful season on and off the field.
The Pee Wee Steelers dominated the majority of their games this season, with two very successful games versus the John Barsby (Harewood) football team.
The Pee Wee Steelers won both games versus the Harewood team with a stellar defense by not allowing a point by their arch rivals from the North. Success can be attributed to a balanced attack on offense along with overall good special teams play by all.
The Junior Bantam Steelers perservered through a challenging season. The bantam team started to really hit their stride late in the season with two very successful finishes the last two weeks versus Campbell River and Fairview.
The young and upcoming group of players that make up the majority of the junior bantam Steelers will be back next season ready to make a run deep into the playoffs. This is a tough group of players.
All the players on the Pee Wee and Junior Bantam football teams had a lot of fun, learned the fundamentals of the game of football and played with a physical component all season.
I’m proud of this group of young players from Ladysmith. They are great kids to coach!
The Ladysmith Minor Football Association would like to thank all the parents, players, coaches, volunteers for their commitment to making the sport of football in Ladysmith an enjoyable experience for all.
A special thank-you to the Ladysmith Eagles and Ladysmith Kinsmen for their generous donations to purchase protective equipment for all the players.
