Raider Spring Training 2018
Include names & details so that we can post it!
Thanks for joining us at the Jamboree!
Luke Anders MacNeil (July 26, 1995 – July 5, 2017) was a player with the West Edmonton Raiders organization from 2003 to 2009. Luke was known for executing his position as Safety with passion, ferocity and skill. Luke was an “all in” player, but his dedication to his team and his teammates went far beyond the field, and resulted in friendships that lasted throughout his lifetime.
Luke loved every moment of the time he spent playing for the Raiders. In his memory, his family is sponsoring a player in need of assistance with the hopes that they will be able to find the same complete joy in playing the game as Luke did.
“Football doesn't build character, it reveals character.” – Marv Levy.
Luke’s true character: courageous, talented, brave, and fiercely loyal, was revealed on the Raiders’ field and we will be forever grateful to coaches, volunteers and teammates for giving him the opportunity and sharing the experience with him.
WHY KIDS QUIT SPORTS?
IT'S A PRETTY WELL KNOWN FACT THAT 70% OF CHILDREN QUIT YOUTH SPORTS BY THE AGE OF 13.
WHAT IS NOT AS WIDELY KNOWN IS THE REASONS WHY THEY QUIT. THE SCARY PART IS THAT MANY OF THE THINGS WELL-INTENTIONED PARENTS AND COACHES DO FOR THEIR ATHLETES ARE THINGS THEY BELIEVE ARE HELPING, BUT ARE SOME OF THE BIGGEST CONTRIBUTORS TO THE HIGH DROP OUT RATE!
THE NUMBER 1 REASON WHY THEY QUIT IS THAT IT STOPS BEING FUN!
WHAT KIDS WANT ARE:
1. RESPECT AND ENCOURAGEMENT
2. POSITIVE ROLE MODEL
3. CLEAR, CONSISTENT COMMUNICATION
4. KNOWLEDGE OF SPORT

As one of the most popular sports among young boys in America, football has surpassed baseball as the nation’s leading sport. Football teaches discipline, teamwork and dedication, all of which are beneficial beyond the gridiron. But American football is also a great sport for health and fitness.
