The list of pro athletes coming to conduct the Game Ready Football Camp in Courtenay continues to grow.

Late last week, organizers added two more B.C. Lions to the coaching roster – linebacker Solomon Elimimian and wide receiver Manny Arceneaux.

They will join fell Leos linebacker Adam Bighill, defensive back Korey Williams and running back Tim Crunk. Also en route is two-time Grey Cup winner Will Loftus, Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive tackle Ryan Lucas, Edmonton Eskimos offensive linen Justin Sorenson, and University of Manitoba quarterback Cam Clark.

Comox Valley and Vancouver Island football players from age 12 to 17 can learn skills from CFL pros at the Game Ready camp, hosted by the Comox Valley Raiders Football Club May 17-18 at Bill Moore Memorial Park in Courtenay.

Players of all levels will be taken through a series of drills to familiarize themselves with the game of football and build on their current skill level.

The Game Ready philosophy teaches youth leadership on and off the field and healthy decision making, a Raiders' spokesperson said.

"Game Ready helps young men and women become mentally and physically stronger by creating a competitive, high intensity environment," the spokesperson said. "This keeps youth focused and driven to become mentally and physically stronger than they have ever been."

The camp runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days. Registration is $100 and includes all equipment except cleats. Call 250-702-5515 for more information. Registration is at the Lewis Centre.
