Starting July 16th the Province will move to Stage 3 of the reopening road map and it was announced that All sports can resume to normal operations with NO restrictions on contact sports! See release from our Provincial Sports Organization below
As we continue to look at the options for Fall Ball we have decided to play in the OFL (OFFL) as this has been the league of choice for most teams that are playing FALL tackle football as well they have committed to fielding JV and VR teams in the event there is no High School ball offered. There will be a change in the age grouping as per the below;
ATOM - Birth Years 2012/2013 (younger can play here)
PEEWEE - Birth Years 2010/2011
BANTAM - Birth Years 2008/2009
JUNIOR VARSITY - Birth Years 2006/2007
SENIOR VARSITY - Birth Years 2003-2005
We apologize for any inconvenience these changes cause and any confusion but we believe this league offers all our teams the best possible competition and options this fall.
As we align our teams we are making some coaching adjustments to ensure we have all teams fairly covered, please bear with us as these changes continue to evolve.
IF your player is moved up to a new division based on above ages your contact and sports engine team will be moved this weekend as well the Team managers and Stuart will be on the rosters to help answer any questions. As well emails will be forthcoming this weekend to all teams.
COST is $200.00 Non-Refundable Deposit due at Registration for Training. ALL DEPOSITS MUST BE PAID BY JULY 16th as we need to ensure our permits costs are covered for Fall Season.
Thunder will supply players with Helmet, Shoulder Pads and Uniforms. Players must supply Girdle ( 7 point is best option), Mouth Guards, Practice jersey and pants and cleats. We have a limited supply of practice pants available.
ALL players must complete the National Registry. This is a requirement of Football Canada and the OFA and is NOT part of the Thunder Registration. Cost is $35.00 per player.
$500.00 for Fall Season Due by July 31st (ONLY for Atom, Peewee and Bantam as we await word on the HS season for JV and VR)

We thank all our members for their continued support and understanding while we all navigate these unprecedented times.
