Welcome to all the new players and welcome back to the returnees!
We will be doing an equipment handout this week on Wednesday and Thursday, September 8 and 9 in the evening from 6-7:30 at Krown Rustproofing at 514 Gormanville Road. We ask that all players and parents wear a mask while in close contact with others. All equipment is supplied except for cleats and mouthguards. If you have old cleats that no longer fit we accept used cleats, if you have outgrown your cleats and could use some gently used ones we can check what we have available. There are lots of cleats and mouth guards available at Source for Sports to purchase as well. Soccer cleats are also good for football. I suggest having a couple of mouthguards on hand as if they lose theirs or forget theirs they can not play.
The camp is on Saturday, September 11th Bantams will be at 5:30-7:30 at Rollie Fischer field. We ask them to wear full gear including a mouthguard. After the camp, the coaches split up the teams and you will be contacted about which team your player will be on and what nights they will be practicing. You should hear from your coach no later than September 15th, the first games are September 25th.
Kids are back to school Tuesday, tell them to tell their friends about football and get them to sign up too! We try to accommodate friend requests as best we can. Register at www.northbaybulldogs.com.
Player fees can be paid by email transfer to me at this email firstname.lastname@example.org or at the Bulldog’s Store https://northbaybulldogs.com/shop/ or at source for sports on Fisher Street. The fees are $275. If you are having problems with player fees, you can apply for kid sport or jumpstart. We also run a BINGO every second Thursday and you can work off your player fees by working bingos, if interested let me know.
Games will be on Saturdays at Rollie Fischer Bantams are at 12 and 1. Tykes play before this so there is a chance games could start a bit later. They play 2 one hour games back to back each Saturday.
Volunteers, we are always looking for volunteers. Game days we always are looking for refs, stick crew, trainers to tend to bumps and bruises. If you are interested in coaching also let me know. If you are interested in working Bingos we always need help there too!
