"we don't play to win...we practice to win"

Welcome to Lakers Football

Football was re-introduced to the community of Sylvan Lake in 1997 with the H.J. Cody Lakers Football Team. The team is comprised of athletes in Grades 10 through 12. After a few years of growing pains the Lakers have forged themselves into one of the most celebrated programs in Central Alberta. Having won 4 League Championships, the success of our program is explained quite simply. We expect to Win. It is not a win at all costs attitude, but rather, through preparation and hard work that we believe in our ability to overcome our opponents. It is this attitude that we feel is important to impart to all of our players to make them successful both on and off the football field. “We Don’t Play to Win… We Practice to Win!”

Coach's Message:

  2016 looks to be another great season for the Laker's football club. We graduated some players we will sure miss, however the Grade 12s this season look to be one of the best groups ever. The Lakers are loaded with depth and talent at many positions. "next man up", will likely be the motto for this season including Quarterback with two capables in Mike Smyth and Patrick Bennett. Running backs are in capable hands with Tristan Koller and Ethan Mearns. The line will be anchored by the talented and gigantic Carson Lethbridge. Expect to see Rayden Thomas and Brett Zenert making a lot of plays on defence and Jonny Payne to be the special teams leader. I want to thanks Denise Kennedy and Crystal Loewen for all their help. I would also like to thank the Laker's assisstant coaches and trainers.
