The Langley Rams junior football team is taking over McLeod Athletic Park this weekend.
From Friday to Sunday (June 13), the Rams will be holding their annual spring camp on MAP's oval field.

Training camp opens on Friday with official introductions at 6 p.m.
The players will hit the field for the first practice Friday night from 7: 30-9: 30 p.m.
On Saturday, practice sessions will be 11: 30 a.m. to 1: 30 p.m. and 2: 30-4: 30 p.m.
On Sunday, the players will practise from 10-11 a.m.
Camp wraps up with a full-contact scrimmage game from 1: 303: 30 p.m.
The Rams are entering their second season in Langley.
After finishing the 2011 regular season at 5-5 and in third place in their conference, the Rams advanced to the BC Football Conference title game, which they lost 44-0 to the Vancouver Island Raiders.
Langley opens its 2012 campaign on the road Aug. 4 against the Okanagan Sun, at the Apple Bowl in Kelowna.

On May 20 at McLeod Athletic Park, LAFC recorded its first PCSL victory with a 2-0 shutout of the Highlanders.
LAFC took its 2-3 record into last night's (May 30) game at MAP against the Vancouver Thunderbirds.
Going into the match, the Thunderbirds were unbeaten at 3-0-1.

KLIMEK MML ALL-STAR
Valley West Hawks star defenceman Jordan Klimek is now, officially, a BC Hockey Major Midget League all-star.
On Tuesday, BC Hockey announced the players selected to the 2011/12 MML all-star team.
A 16-year-old Langley resident, Klimek was among the players selected based on votes from BC Hockey MML coaches.
Coaches were prohibited from voting for players on their own team.
Each player will be presented with an award from BC Hockey.
The team captain, Klimek was the Hawks' MVP this season. His eight goals and 34 assists was good enough for fourth on the team's scoring list.
Klimek's 42 points were the best by any defenceman in the MML, and 13 more than the next highest-scoring rearguard in the league.
