Transition
 
March is a pivotal month for the Barsby Football Program.  We have held 2014 player registration, our feeder program is up and running and the annual Garden Manure Sale will be complete, this Saturday. 
 
The manure sale is awesome!  Everyone in the program gets together in common cause to raise much needed funds for the kids.  The players themselves have a hand in putting their uniforms on their backs and develop a strong sense of program ownership.  Much like spring itself, this is the time when the program germinates again for another year of football.  We are extremely excited about the coming journey and the development of all the players as we write the 2014 chapter of program history.  This year's JV and Varsity squads are unwritten books and it will so fun and rewarding as they strive for and attain the status of being the best Barsby they can be!
 
As March winds down and April begins, we will be transitioning workouts in the weight-room, gymnasium and on the grass.  There are camps ahead, evening throw-arounds and a spring combine.  There will be baseline concussion testing, certification and some new additions to the coaching staff.  May will seee UBC arriving for a camp on the 3rd and then Spring Practice, Program Photos and Jamborees to wind-up the month.  There is much, much, much to do in order to GET BETTER!
 
Exciting!

Getting Better

The work is ongoing.  As ol Socrates said, "...you are what you do every day, therefore excellence is a habit."  Thursday, 6 March is a "Get Better" day for sure.  Classroom, gym floor, weight-room for sure. Today, five Sr.'s from our 2013 squad are beginning the process of giving back.  They are providing twenty and thirty minute blocks of instruction to an entire elementary school in their gymnasium across the entire day. Yesterday, while scooping gear for the session, one of these young men remarked that it is exactly ten years ago that he first stepped on the school field for spring flag-football.  Here he is now with his with his mates, a two-time provincial champion, teaching another generation this great game.  In fact, today is his eighteenth birthday and he is spending a great portion of it making a corner of the world a little bit better.  Amen!

Tonight, long-time coaches on our staff, Randy and Larry Cooper are leading over sixty players aged 9-13 through their second practice of the 2014 spring football season.  Flag for the 9,10,11's and tackle for the 12 13's.  The brothers Coop are not alone!  With them on the field are a superb Cadre of community coaches, alumni and current HS players helping our young folks get better!  Saturday will see parents and again, long-time volunteers help out with game-day operations.  It is truly a thing of beauty when a group of diverse people come together in common cause.  I truly believe that everyone walks away "better" in some way from each practice and game than they were before they showed-up.  The friendships that develop out on that patch of dirt are lasting and are the sinews that hold our program together.

There is always room out there on the field for newcomers.  Everyone has something about themselves that is unique and that they can contribute. This applies to youth and adults alike.  The best food you ever ate was probably made from scratch and the mix of folks out on the field tonight will fit within that paradigm just swell.

Today, Thursday 6 March is a great day. Today we get better!

Thankful!

Effort!

Not a day goes by where I am not thankful for being a part of this program!  There is ALWAYS something to celebrate, ALWAYS.  Performance and Leadership class was flat-out awesome!  The guys push so dang hard.  Effort ruled the day today. A block took things to a new level!  B-Block wasn't far off.  We were gifted one hour and ten minutes and we used it to the max! Here is how it went:

1) Announcements/ 45 crunches/ABC/30 yard build-ups followed by Stretch

2) We skip roped 440 plus yards switching styles and rhythm every 40 yards

3) We harnessed up and dragged partners 300 plus yards in 20 yard all-out increments

4) Thirty plyo push-ups and thirty jack-knife sit-ups with 15 lb medicine ball

5) Transition to weight-room 3 x 10 full squats minimum 185 lbs

6) A-Block then rocked a 20 station timed circuit 3 x 10 reps in 80 seconds or less

7) Bell rings during clean-up

The guys supported each other throughout and NEVER QUIT !!!!!!!!!!  We  GOT BETTER!

INSPIRATIONAL!  

There are no lies on the football field! 

Rippin-It-Up!

2013 Alumni Game

2013 Game Loads Of Fun!

Played every year at high noon the first Saturday after Christmas, this year's game was a classic.  The split was between 2008 and 2009.  The "Old Dawgs" wore red and white while the "young fellers" wore black.

It sure was good to see everyone including all the parents and coaches from years past as well!

Week 8 Recap

Week Eight

The eighth week of the season saw our JV's crash into the playoffs with a punishing 36-20 win over the Bellmont Blue Bulldogs on Wednesday "In The Canem Cage" on John Barsby Field.  Kudo's to the hard training and persistence by this group in 2013.  We have been living up to our motto of "Getting Better Each Day" and after a bye this week, will be on the road against a top seed for the playoffs.  Fellas, use this week and next to improve!





At Varsity, our foes were the Carson Graham Eagles.  Much adieu was made in The Province newspaper of them working out at 0730 this year.  That put a bit of a smile on our faces as we own the AM!  Carson came to play and were a great team physically.  We accepted the challenge and won 21-0.  We could see these guys again late in the playoffs so no let downs at all!!



Next up for our Varsity is the Nanaimo District Islanders in the Ray Kocher Classic, 1:46 PM, Friday, November 1st at Merle Logan.

Go Dawgs!

Huge Game This Week!

 


 
VS
 
 
Varsity Dawgs vs Windsor Dukes
1:46 PM, Friday, 18 October, Merle Logan Field Nanaimo
 
This is a playoff game for both teams.  The winner secures a minimum of second place in the division.  The loser faces a tougher post-season road for sure.  Windsor will be PREPARED!  They are led by one of the smartest coaches in Canada and the number one rated qb is BC.  The supporting cast is very, very good, technically sound and rarely out of position.  Time to bring our A-Game Barsby!
