Away Game Information – Rebels

As per my earlier email, please continue to let me know if your player is not at Saturdays game and or if they are not taking the bus to or from the game.  This allows us to know what coaches, water boys etc… can fit on the bus and allows coaches to game plan around players not able to attend.

Remember to check and double check that you have everything in your bag to play, we do not bring extra, mouth guards, cleats helmets, pants etc.  If you don’t have everything you just don’t play.

Weather will not cancel practice unless there is lightning in the immediate area or the city closes the field. We will let you know when the practice is called off. Otherwise, dress for the conditions.  As you will notice practices are heavy up until our first game as we prepare to be ready game one May 19th here at home. (11 practices before game one).  Please note all practices up to and including May 17 are at Omischl on Lakeshore.  Starting May 18th onwards will be at Rolly Fisher behind the memorial gardens.  Please try to make as many practices as possible as every practice there will be new plays being added.  

The Bulldogs are looking forward to a great season of action so we don’t want you missing any of the lead-up or the games.

OFA Registration

Since 2013 we have been part of 3 different football leagues and this year marks the 3rd league as the OVFL has folded. We are excited about our groups and joining the OPFL. In joining the OPFL, there is a requirement for all players to become nationally registered into the Ontario Football Alliance system. This facilitates access to OFA programming as well as medical insurance coverage. This insurance coverage will cover medical expenses related to treatment and rehabilitation from a football injury that is not covered by OHIP.  No Bantam, JV or SV player in Ontario can participate in OPFL or OFC without acquiring this coverage.

In addition to the sports injury medical insurance benefits, this membership opens players up to the opportunity to participate in Provincial, National and International Football events and programs. Team Ontario, Team Canada, etc…

At the same time this process will deem players eligible for the coming season in their respective age group (Bantam, JV & SV) in the OPFL. It should be pointed out that OFA Registration is a requirement for all football players across the province playing summer football in Senior Varsity levels or below.

It is not required for NFC as it is an open league.

Please go to the following link and complete the registration process. There is a fee required and is payable online.
