2018 Registration Open

Merry Christmas Bulldogs,

2018 will be an exciting year for the Bulldogs family as we are hard at work planning for another great fun year of football. We are pleased to announce that we have moved from the OVFL and will be competing in the OPFL AA division and will be facing our old adversaries such as TNT, Toronto Jets, and Orangeville among others.

For Christmas, we have released our early registration program to get as many players registered during this Christmas holiday season as we can.

We will be holding a draw for an authentic NFC jersey in January for early-bird registrations.

In order to qualify, you must submit the registration forms to the Club along with a $150 deposit.

**VERY IMPORTANT**

Getting your registrations in earliest will give you priority over your choice of available jersey numbers. Returning players within the team will get first rights to their jersey numbers, however, newly available jersey numbers will be handed out on a 1st come 1st serve basis based on registration & deposit date.

We have had many people asking us for registration forms so we will be getting a heavy run on registrations during this Christmas…so be sure to register early to ensure you get your choice of jersey number. DON’T WAIT!!! Register ASAP!

On another note….we are excited & looking forward to a positive fun & competitive football season in 2018…together.

Have a great Merry Christmas and don’t hesitate to contact any member of our executive.

Bulldogs Join the OPFL

The North Bay Bulldogs have joined the Ontario Provincial Football League (OPFL).

In a move discussed since last season based on parent, coach, and player feedback the Bulldog’s executive voted unanimously to move to the OPFL. The move comes on the heels of the Nipissing Wild ending as North Bay’s senior varsity division team.  With the rebuilding of our existing summer teams (Bantam, junior varsity, NFC) and the sudden formation of the Senior Varsity team, it compelled the decision to move to the AA tier of the OPFL.

The OPFL is an active league hosting two tiers and twenty teams. Visit the league’s website, twitter, or Facebook for more insight and information

“As a club, we value the opportunity to be part of a tiered league in which we can develop our coaches and players to elevate their play to the highest possible level” – Marc Mathon President of the North Bay Bulldogs.

Game Day – Waterloo

Its game day Saturday on the road to Waterloo!  We ask our Bantam players to be at the bus for 8:30 am and the bus will be leaving by 9 am and for our JV players to be on the bus for 10:30 am and the bus will be leaving by 11 am.  Please ensure players have lots to eat and drink for on the bus for breakfast/lunch.  We will be stopping for dinner on the way back.   Leaving from the same spot behind memorial gardens.

Be sure to have all your equipment.

If your player is unable to attend the game Saturday please advise me right away.  If they are not taking the bus either to or from the game I also need to know that and have the form signed and returned either by email or Friday nights practice.http://www.ovflontario.com/front/doc/AlternateGameTransport.pdf

Waterloo has provided some game day info as well as instructions to help you find your way to the field if you plan to attend the game.  Address is 252 Columbia Street West.

Game Day – Lions v Bulldogs

Game day is coming up quickly!   For those that couldn’t make the out of town home opener, our games are lots of fun!

Players are asked to be at Northern Secondary located 175 Ethel Rue, Sturgeon Falls at 10 am Sunday morning.  We will have access to change rooms and prepare for the game.  Make sure you have all your equipment including your yellow socks, players missing equipment can not play.  We encourage the Bantam players to stay and watch the JV game if at all possible.

11:45 will introduce players

11:55 Oh Canada

12:00 kickoff

The cost to get in is $5 per person, children 12 and under are free.  The $5 gets you into both the Bantam and JV game so you are not paying twice.

50/50 will be sold and drawn in the third quarter of each game, tickets are $2 each, 3 for $5 or 10 for $10.

Our BBQ will start at 11 am and we will have hot dogs, hamburgers, desserts and cold water.  The BBQ is a fundraiser for the team and is by donation.  There are no set costs but please be fair.

Water will be provided for the players the same as last weekend during the game.

There is limited seating and the seating is fairly far back so I would suggest bringing lawn chairs to sit in.

The filed is Pet-friendly as long as you pick up after them.

Please remember to respect the refs, the coaches and team mates, this way everyone can enjoy the game!
