2013 Flag and Tackle Football Registration



Flag Football 2013

We are entering our eleventh year of Spring Flag Football. Over the past decade we have found this league to be extremely fun for all participants and a superb way for young people to begin “the football experience”. No previous experience is required and year-after year it is truly amazing to watch how quickly young folks pick-up the game and flourish in a few short months.

Our coaching staff is certified, experienced and represents some of the most accomplished individuals in the regional/provincial amateur football community. Our goal is simple; we aim to help young people be their best in a safe, fun, interactive skill development oriented setting. Many local HS Football athletes and members of the National Champion VI Raiders program began their careers with Flag Football.

Tackle Football 2013

Spring Tackle Football: The goal of spring tackle football is to introduce a fundamental skill set to participants and form the core of the 2013 Jr. Bantam (12/13 year olds) squad that will compete this coming Fall season vs Ladysmith, Fairview, Parksville, Courtney-Comox and Campbell River.

Fall Tackle Football: We will be forming teams at two levels, Pee-Wee (9, 10 and 11 year olds) and Jr. Bantam (12/13 year olds). We compete in a league with teams drawn from the above Island communities. Fall Practices will begin in mid-August with games commencing the weekend after Labour Day.

Fall Practices and Games

Pee-Wee practices are Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 PM-7 PM with home games on Saturdays. There are some Sunday games up-Island. Game times are generally 11 AM.

Jr. Bantam practices Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 PM to 7:30 PM with home games on Saturdays. There are some Sunday games up Island. Game times are generally 1 PM.

Flag-Tackle Football 2 for 1 Registration

Pee-Wee aged players who pay for their tackle football registration in spring can play Spring Flag Football for Free.

The cost to play tackle football at either level is $125.00 per-player. This fee allows us to provide the following:

• Full set of Quality Protective Equipment

• Practice Uniform

• Game Uniform

• Team/Individual Photo and a T-Shirt

For more information please contact Coach Larry Cooper 250-754-2079
