Estevan Minor Football is preparing for what they hope will be a successful season for all of their teams.
While it's still a good bit too cold for teams to be competing, winter camps are beginning for some teams.
That includes Estevan's U18 viragoes, whose coach Mark Tribiger was a part of a meeting recently between the coaches for teams in the EMF.
He says they've got a good feeling about this upcoming year.
"We're looking pretty good. I know the Viragoes, we had a rough season last year but we're looking to build on some of the momentum we had towards the end of the season. Then we have the Chargers, they're coming off a league championship so they should be a strong team once again, and for the players moving up from the chargers to the oilers, they should be a strong team again this year."
One team is looking to start up football even sooner than the rest, with the possibility of a spring season.
"The only one that looks like we're gonna be doing it is the Viragoes. We're probably going to have a home and home with moosomin, It'll be probably in June. We're waiting on what football Saskatchewan has to say in regards to COVID and stuff," said Tribiger, "They're making up the plans right now."
Tribiger says that between the winter training they're doing and the spring league, he hopes 2022 is a better year for the Viragoes.
"We had a rough season last year but we're building on it, and we're hoping to put a fairly competitive team on the field this year.
