Bulldog Football Scheduling a June Kick Off

The North Bay Bulldogs are excited to announce the progress of its 2021 non-contact summer football programs. Bantam and JV registrations are ahead of last year’s fall season’s pace with limited spots left.

The Bulldogs NFC edition will be coming together to work on the passing game and will be involved in NFC competitions vs other NFC teams where permitted by regional guidelines. In addition, the Bulldogs organization will be operating a local full spectrum of non-contact football divisions Sunday game action across the City.

This year the Bulldogs are operating 6 divisions with
TYKE (09, 10, 11),
BANTAM (07 & 08)
Jr. VARSITY (05 & 06)
Sr. Varsity (02, 03 & 04),
Open Adult and
brand new for this year an OPEN WOMEN’s Touch Football League

“We recognize there is an important need for our kids and adults alike to get out into the fresh air and get exercise. Our volunteers are shaking the cobwebs off the footballs and preparing for football in June!” said Bulldogs President Marc Mathon

The actions all starts 2nd week of June and spots are limited so it will be important to get registered before the spots fill up. In 2020, the Bulldogs operated a very successful non-contact football league in the Fall filling up 5 divisions in a very short 3 weeks. The 2020 Fall season comprised of 126 games in 6 weeks so executing a heavy schedule is nothing new for this club.

“We are excited to offer for the first time ever in North Bay an open Women’s touch division. We have room for 4 or 5 teams and 6 players. Women in football is expanding all over the world, including tackle and we really want to offer than here in North Bay.” Explained Mathon.

The action will start with training camp-style practices for the kids on June 8 while games for everyone will be starting June 12th and running through until August.

Registrations for the NFC team are being accepted for NFC non-contact action at the same time and NFC players will automatically eligible to play in the Sunday adult league as well.

“We do need people to help out, so if you are looking for something exciting to contribute to, there is no shortage of fun working with the Bulldogs family”, says Mathon.

2021 Summer Football

GREAT NEWS!! We are prepared to release the news that we will be operating Summer Football this year!

Please find attached a Draft of the 2021 Registration Form for Bulldogs Summer Football. The OPFL will be offering provincial competitive football where permitted by government restriction rules. All indicators from the gov’t signal that tackle football will not be permitted during the summer. So we will be operating a non-contact football program.

We propose to structure a dual-level touch football program this summer where we will operate a local summer touch football league on Sunday and Saturdays will be scheduled for our rep teams to compete against other centers in the OPFL whose health units permit visiting sports clubs to compete in their local fields and to visit North Bay.

We will provide at least 2 practices per week, with one at least reserved for the Club Rep teams to prepare for their Saturday OPFL matchups. Meanwhile, we will operate a city-wide touch football program on Sunday much like we did last fall.

We will offer this in all age groups except PeeWee and Tyke, but in the non-contact context this will provide a genuine opportunity for younger but athletically advanced kids to play at the Bantam level and develop their pass game skills, offensively and defensively.

Meanwhile, at the NFC level, we will be practicing twice per week and scheduling competition vs other NFC clubs in a touch home and home series format as we did last year, except in 2021 there are a number of other clubs very much interested in being involved. I will prepare an NFC registration form later this weekend and circulate it to the group of players with birth years of 2001 and older.

I genuinely believe that our efforts this summer & again in the fall will play a very important role in keeping our city’s kids out of trouble and focused on productive activities with positive goals to set.
