"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:

Welcome to another exciting year of Lakers Football. 2017 has a lot of questions marks around it. Who will step up? Can they repeat? With the graduation of close to 20 players it will be difficult. You can still expect the Lakers to be competitive.  One of the team strengths to watch will be the offensive line, led by Team Alerta stand-out,  Carson Lethbridge. Watch for the Zenert twins to make many big plays on both sides of the both. Our QB situation is in good hands with the athletic Patrick Bennett. Caleb Johnson will be a player that probably won't leave the field much and he will take over the kicking duties. As the season goes on we will need many grade 10 to improve and contribute for the Lakers to be successful. All of this could't happen without the volunteer contributions of our parents especially, Crystal Loewen and Denise. Thank you to everyone in advance and let's play some ball.
