Today, I’m going to write about BC Tough Football Development Camps. I had the pleasure of being at the camp twice to help with player registration, take pictures and post them on Twitter for @Football_BC. These are really simple and easy tasks but I needed some help. Last week, because I had to attend a Korean Soccer Tournament’s Conference right after the camp, my girlfriend, Moon, came to help me out.
This is my story of my day at the BC TOUGH Football Development Camp on April 25.
When we arrived at BC Lions Facility, there were already a lot of energetic athletes waiting for the camp to start. I could feel their passion for football and I know they were looking forward to meeting Lions players.
After Kato, the equipment manager of BC Lions, opened the Facility, I began to set up inside and started working. Moon and I divided the tasks as she helped me with the registration process. She tracked the players’ information on Excel and I handed out the new BC Tough Camp T-shirts. The players looked excited about getting the surprise gift and some wore them on the field.
When the registration was finished, the players went to the field and started warming up with coaches. Even though it was only warm-up, you could tell the athletes were very focused and ready to do their best.

After the warm-up, the players were divided by their position and start training with coaches and their role models, the BC Lions players. The Lions players were really dedicated to teaching and I could see our players wanting to do their best. It reminded me of my old training days. This camp was well-organized and I really envied the players.
Even though it was an early Saturday morning, the coaches and Lions players were all working very hard and took their coaching responsibilities very seriously. I’m certain that the kids learned a lot of things from this camp and they will be tougher players because of it!
