Scarborough Thunder 2021 Update.

By stuart dempster, 01/26/21, 12:45PM EST


Greetings to all our Thunder Families, New and Returning,

 As we all are very aware by now we are in Lock Down here in Ontario, until at Least February 9th, and continue to monitor the situation with our Provincial and Local Public Health Departments. As a result of this lockdown we are unable to start or even schedule  practices. The TDSB has also notified all permit holders that all permits up to March 31st 2021 have been cancelled.

 Please know the SMFA Board is reviewing all our options, with our top priority being our participants health. We have been working behind the scenes to prepare an indoor training site at our current Thunder Facility that includes an Indoor Turf area and a strength and conditioning area, under the direction of our Varsity Head Coach and FFU founder, Paul Blackwood. (Anyone with experience doing Drywall, painting, carpentry etc. that could volunteer an hour or 2 putting the finishing touches in place please reach out to Stuart at

 Once we see the restrictions lifted to at least allow training and small indoor gatherings we will look to start with small group positional training (Helmets and Shoulder Pads will be required), 2 x 1 Hour sessions weekly ( 2 week nights or 2 weekend sessions) but space will be limited based on local allowances. More details will be provided as we get updates from the government.

 To those that paid fees to start 2020, as notified  last year, your fees have been deferred to this year's OPFL/OFL season fees. Any requests for refunds cannot be satisfied at this time as without any training and/or football registrations there is no revenue to provide refunds and as we advised last year have not been refunded by our vendors etc. and continue to have monthly operating expenses. If you will not be returning in 2021 and have deferred fees from 2020 please email us at and we will do our best to satisfy these requests once we start back.

 We want to thank all our families for their understanding and support and look forward to seeing everyone soon. Please see the main page of our website or our facebook page for our GoFundMe Fundraiser if you can help with our continuing operating costs and please share the link.
