North Star football camp welcomes returning, new players

Players gather on the field for football camp.

The regular season may be four months away, but the North Star Wolves are getting ready nonetheless.


Football camp started last week with three days of practice and continued this week with two more days at H. Murray Smith Centennial Park. Coaches ran players through various drills with returning players getting in their work before helping incoming players who will be enrolling in Grade 9 in September from the local feeder schools.


There was an average of about 27 returning players out last week while roughly 13-16 incoming players came out per day last week.


“It’s going good,” said North Star head coach Joel Charron last Wednesday afternoon. “I’m really pleased with the numbers we have had in the past few days.”


Charron said he was pleased with the talent level of the players that came out.

“We’ve got what is looking like some potential game-breakers,” he said.


Getting some additional football experience and getting some current elementary school students who are entering North Star in the fall to come out is “paramount,” he believed. By bringing out students from North Star’s feeder schools, it allows them to get a taste for what they can expect in the fall.


“Getting into the feeder schools was a focus,” said Charron. “Administration did a good job in getting the word out.”


Nine players from the 2023 are graduating, but Charron believes a lot of their core players will be back.


“It looks like we’ve got guys to fill the roles of the graduating players,” he said. “I like the talent level we’ve got out.”


High school football programs are only allowed five days of practice in the spring and Charron said they wanted to take advantage of that. He said the Wolves’ football program is like a family and they were pleased to get everyone together for the spring camp once again.


“We picked up right where we left off,” he said. “Everyone is buying into what we’re selling. We’ve got a lot of excited kids. I’m excited.”
