The 2016 football season has commenced in Pincher Creek.  Players of all ages are taking to the field at practices this week, and the Senior Mustangs play their first game this coming Saturday, August 22, a home-field exhibition match against McCoy.  It's the first of three home exhibition games for the Mustangs, to be followed by two away exhibition games before the Southern Alberta High School Football League (SAHSFL) varsity season begins.

The Pincher Creek and District Mustang Football Society invites players from grades 4-10 to register for football this fall.  Practices are underway now.  Skill is not a requirement, and all equipment is supplied free except for a pad girdle (for hygienic reasons) and shoes.  The cost is $250 a season, including busing for the Bantam team.  All our coaches are certified for football coaching and all equipment is inspected and certified by Football Alberta.  For more information contact Faith Zachar at 403-627-7751 or Dan Crawford at 403-627-7891.

First (rainy) huddle of the season
The Senior Mustangs were practicing at Halton field on Sunday last, despite the inclement weather of the day. Mustangs Mom Kim Lissel reported "Right after warmup a coach brought the boys inside to discuss the play books because the lightning and thunder became 3 seconds apart. Pouring right now."  She also took the photos of the Senior Mustangs practice that accompany this article.  Thanks Kim!

Goodbye Coach Tom

It's with sadness we bid adieu to Coach Tom Holoboff, as he leaves his beloved Peewees and Pincher Creek for a job elsewhere this season.  He will be missed, on the field and for his wonderful Peewee Mustangs articles.
