Bantam Titans host four-team jamboree

IMG 8718

The Bantam Titans wrapped up their spring season by hosting a jamboree at DVSS on Saturday, June 3.
The Titans invited Hanna, Stettler and Strathmore to play in a four-team jamboree.
“This was the first we have done that, it went over quite well,” said Bantam coach Brad Iverson.
Jamboree format is that each team takes 10 offensive possessions at the 45-yard line and plays through them before switching it up. If a team scores they reset at the 45-yard line. There is no kicking. This format allowed them to run two games at the same time.
Jamborees are very much a development format, where teams get in solid reps of plays. The coaches are on the field behind the plays, coaching and guiding the teams through the game.
“It gets them playing time and a chance to experience it for the kids too because coaches are on the field. There is a lot of learning because it is their first game-like situation against another team,” said Iverson.
Typically scores aren’t kept at jamborees. Iverson said it appeared they stacked up well against their competition, all teams that play in their league.
“In our games, we only gave up two touchdowns and scored 19,” he said.
With that, the Titans are now awaiting the fall season to begin.
“That wraps up our spring season,” said Iverson. “We started at the beginning of May and finished our season with a jamboree,” said Iverson.
