The following is important information regarding the 2016 season for both junior and senior players.

Junior

All new and returning players are asked to attend a brief meeting on Wednesday, September 7th, at lunch, in the main gym. To be eligible to play junior, players must be born in 2001 or 2002. Returning players who do not have equipment or those that attended the spring camp may pick up their equipment on Wednesday after school. The first practice will take place on Thursday, September 8th at 3:15 on the football field; this will be a non-equipment practice. Full equipment practices will begin on Friday, September 9th. Players and parents can download, print and complete the consent form below to get a head start on the season. For more information, please see Mr. Battistel, Mr. Honeysett or Mr. Bevilacqua.

Junior Consent Form

Senior

Practices will begin Monday, August 29th from 3:00-5:00. The basement will be open at 2:40 and practice will commence at 3:00 sharp. Practices will run through Thursday, September 1st. Normal practice schedule will start the following week, after Labour Day. New players are welcome. For more information, please see Mr. Marcon or Mr. Pearce.

*Please note that fees have gone up this year to $120. This is to offset an increase in prices, as well to cover the $15 athletic banquet fee the school will charge each athlete this year. This means that every football player will automatically be eligible to attend the awards dinner in June.
**Also, new SSSAA guidelines require that all athletes in high-risk sports undergo baseline testing prior to the commencement of the season. This includes all Grade 9s and those new to football in Grade 10, 11 or 12. Tests are administered by the LU Concussion Clinic.
