As we continue to move forward with our Fall Season we are excited to see most of the other clubs have committed to fielding teams for Fall football. The goal is to have all teams in 1 league and properly tiered. The Scarborough Thunder have committed to field teams from Atom to Senior Varsity ( U10 to U18+) in Tier 1. The league is looking to start games the weekend of September 11th with a 6 game schedule, Playoff, October 30th and November 6th and Championships the weekend of Nov. 13th. They are also in discussion with NCAFA (Nations Capital Football Assoc.) to have our Tier 1 Champions possibly Play their Champions the weekend of November 20th.

Please bring 2 PCS of ID to Handout as we will need to have copies for our team binders. Those that already have equipment we will setup a night at the practice field to gather the ID and get player Photo.
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.
