Boys - Must be 7 years old and under 16 on Dec 15th
Girls - Must be 7 years old and under 17 on Dec. 15th

Special Requests:
You can make special requests on the registration form to be on a specific team, or request to be on the same team as a friend. In some cases, a request to play with others will bump a player up or down a division. We are usually able to accommodate special requests only when the overall age range works. NOTE: For indoor players will need to be 12 to be in player throw.

Player Throw vs Coach Throw:
The player throw division should have everyone on the team at least be 12 years old. The INDOOR program does not have enough games / practices time to develop a QB that is 10.5 or 11 years old.

When is the season and what time do we play?
The Indoor League commences in January. The program is held on Sundays and games including practices will be 65 minutes long.
NOTE - Dates and times are tentative until schedule is sent out the first week of January!

Where do we play?
The teams practice and play at the Shouldice athletic park in the Encana Dome. 1515 Home Road NW

Special requests?
You can make a special request on the registration form to be on a specific team, or request to be on the same team as a friend. Special requests may result in being moved up or down a division or to a different team.

I see on the website that most games are on Sunday are there practices as well?
Yes, games are on Sunday. Twenty-minute practices are conducted prior to the game each week. Your scheduled time is the start of practice.
