After a successful year of the inaugural all female football season in the spring of 2019 that saw the West Edmonton Raiders, St. Albert Valkyrie, Leduc Cats, and the Wetaskiwin Warriors put teams in for the inaugural season, the Capital District Minor Football Association is looking to build on the success that was had by running again in the spring of 2020.
This year the hope is to run two levels of programming, U19 and U16; which means, that if enough ladies come out there will be programming for players from 12-18. The cut off date is Dec. 31, 2020 for the ages so if the player turns 19 up to or on that day she is not eligible to play this season.
This year the teams will again be playing six-person football with the U16 team playing half field shootout football and the U19 team playing full field, full special teams football.
This year the season will begin with registration and some indoor get-togethers in January, equipment handout in February and then getting into the full swing of practice in March and then games will be the last bit of March and the month of April. Yes, it is a short quick season, but that is football.
This year the Wetaskiwin Warriors would like to run teams at both levels, but they need help to do it. There is a need for coaches, especially female coaches. If this is something that would interest you contact Codey Soanes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not have any experience but would like to be involved, reach out as there are courses available and some very experienced coaches to help you along.
There is also a need for players. This is a full fledged league with practices, games, and a championship to go along with it, and the Wetaskiwin Warriors would love to defend, if not improve, on their tier two championship from last year.
Football is a sport for all shapes and sizes of players. There is a spot for you no mater what!! To register visit wetaskiwinfootball.com and use the link to register, or contact email@example.com for more information.
The Wetaskiwin Warriors executive and the football community understand the stigma that is around football and football injuries, and if this is something that concerns you they would love to discuss any concerns you have. Contact Codey Soanes at firstname.lastname@example.org, facebook message him, or stop him on the street to discuss. Soanes is always willing to answer any questions.
