Youth League FAQ

  • Should you wear a cup? No, a cup will hurt more than with no cup.
  • Most people will wear underwear or tight shorts under their pants.  Pants can be washed but should be hung to dry.
  • Players should always come to practice in full equipment and bring a water.
  • Always remember to keep your mouth guard in your mouth while on the field.  If you forget your mouth guard you can not play.
  • Do we still practice in the rain?  Yes, we do, rain can be fun and we only stop for lightning.
  • Once on a team, the players will all get their game jerseys which will be worn for practices as well.  Until they receive the jersey, they can put a t-shirt, or jersey over the pads for this week.
  • Payment can be made by email transfer to this email address or at the Source for Sports on Fischer street by cash, cheque, debit or credit

2016 Youth League Rolling

The North Bay Bulldogs are humbled by the turn out we had to our Youth Football Combine/Camp. It’s always a pleasure to see our young raw athletes come out and have fun learning and executing their very first tackle, block and catch,.

So what happens next? We have one more group practice coming up so keep tabs on our event calendar. After this Tuesday’s group practice the coaches will assemble on the weekend to draft their teams to ensure even and fair distribution of players and talent.  It is with a heavy heart we retire the CFL team structure but in it’s place we are expanding our Bulldog brand (including new jerseys, logos, teams and divisions) – remember we are all BULLDOGS in the end.

Once the teams are created we will then let the coaches rudder their teams and be the central point of contact.


2016 Youth League – Post Camp Information

The North Bay Bulldogs coming in off a successful 2016 Summer season are ready to continue our momentum with its fall Youth League.

If you have registered your star-in-the-making we have some times and dates to note:

What a fantastic camp weekend. The rookies did very well and the veterans looked to be in great shape.

We will be having three more group practices that everyone will be practicing together.  These practices will be Tuesday, August 30th, Wednesday, August 31st, and Tuesday, September 6th from 6-7:30 at Rolly Fisher Field.

The coaches will then draft players to divide in to 4 teams to make the teams as even as possible.  Each team will have a senior division and a junior division and will be split into 4 groups (white, yellow, black or grey).  The senior groups will play against each other and junior groups will play against each other back to back.  So if you have brothers or sisters that are both playing and one is junior and one is senior, they will practice together, same time same place but separate games back to back.  We are going to try to have even amounts of grade 5, 6, 7 and 8’s on each team as this way when the grade 8’s move on from our program we will have kids in all age groups on the teams.  We will try to accommodate kids playing on the same team for carpooling as well.  If there is something like this we need to know please advise ASAP.   Once your child is placed on a team the coaches will contact you to let you know dates and times for practices and team-specific stuff.  All other info will come from or email blast and


If you know of anyone interested in playing and is not yet registered, please have them sign up asap.  They can email it to me, sign up online or at Source for Sports.
