I have two sons that have participated in Junior Ravens football since the inception of the program. I can't recommend this program enough. Well-organized, excellent instruction from Ravens players and coaches in a controlled, respectful environment. It has made my kids better football players and developed fundamental football skills. Keep up the great work! Looking forward to the Spring program! Go Ravens!

Like most parents, we’ve tried lots of camps for our kids. Our son loves football and dreams of being the next Tom Brady, so finding a camp that focuses on skill development was a priority. More important: finding a camp whose team demonstrated a genuine interest in kids, not a paycheque or their cell phone.

Parents know the signs that our kids are happy at a camp: they want to go; they get out of bed and are ready to go to camp (on time!); and the last day of camp, they ask when the next camp starts 👍🏻

If you met the coaches, you’d understand why my son loves the Jr Ravens Football camp. I’ve never met such a professional, kind and well-rounded group of councillors who possess a mature confidence usually found in experienced executives and professional athletes.

If I were CEO of a company, I would hire whoever hires them. Clearly they have a formula for finding quality people. The Jr Ravens football staff will give your kids the encouragement and genuine attention that all kids need to reach their full potential.

My son is all-in, and so are we.

Congrats on an amazing job.

With gratitude for your enriching our son’s life,
Jennifer & Mark Gillespie

Our 7-year old son participated in the JR Introductory program and loved it! Staff is amazing and so engaging with the kids. For a kid who never played football before, our son felt confident right away with the help of coaches who encouraged him from the get go. We also felt that, as parents, we were engaged in the program and always well advised of the necessary details. Sessions were organized and extremely well run! We actually enrolled our 4-year old daughter in the FirstDown program as well, and are excited for her to give it a try. For someone who doesn’t know much about football, I am looking forward to learning the basics with her. We highly recommend these programs to anyone!

Our daughter ( 10 years old) participated in the Grid Iron girls touch football over the winter and it was fabulous. She gained a huge amount of confidence in herself and she made a great friend in the process , they already are talking about the next camp!! The camp was was a fun way to get the girls out of the house during the winter months and burn off some energy. Kudos to the coaches for keeping all the girls actively involved. They seemed to be having as much fun as the Grid iron girls did and it really helped our daughter feel confident in throwing the ball around.
