Play with the Pros

Play with the Pros proudly supported by BC Egg matches BC Lions players with boys and girls, providing them with an opportunity to participate in a non-contact skills clinic hosted by their favourite BC Lions players.

The participants are divided into groups and rotate through various skill stations every 10-15 minutes. One player, one alumnus and one volunteer coach (local high school or community) are assigned per station, teaching skills such as passing, receiving, pass routes, and proper running techniques.
