The 2013/14 Season has been a fun filled and exciting one for the Nakusp Falcons Bantam team.

The 2013/14 Season has been a fun filled and exciting one for the Nakusp Falcons Bantam team.

The season began with a few challenges; trying to gather enough players to even have a team in the league, then securing a coaching staff.  In the nick of time, two former Midget Rep Players, Ryan Bateman and Shea Weighill, stepped forward to claim the job, with Carla Trenholm taking on the Manager’s position.

So far they have played eight games with one win. This group of kids remains positive and determined and they continue to improve every week. The outlook for a great season finish is as positive as they are!

The next Bantams match is against Trail on Jan. 18 at noon.

The 2013/14 Bantams: Back Row: Killian McCrory, Anthony Maxinuk, Arturs Vilks, David Faucher, Cole Lythgoe; Middle Row: Coach Ryan Bateman, Kalen Jones, Trainer Pat McCrory, Ben Gardner, Coach Shea Weighill; Front Row: Eric Vieira, Madison McCrory, Alex Roberts, Viktors Vilks, Brayden Reardon  (Missing from photo: Manager Carla Trenholm).
