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.

DOGS Summer 2021

2020 Youth and JV Playoffs

It has been a great privilege to be part of this tremendous endeavor. With school sports being shuttered due to the pandemic the North Bay Bulldogs knew we needed to step up and give the kids and fans an athletic outlet. It was logistically difficult and overwhelming but the support we received from our players, fans, volunteers, and executive made it all happen. And after an exciting season of fun, it’s time for the playoffs.

We wish all the teams good luck. More to the point we wish all the teams have fun. The true intention is to grow the skills of the players, let them make memories playing with their team all the while giving them an outlet to enjoy Bulldogs Football. Please encourage all the teams and cheer for all of the players. We are ALL Bulldogs.

Noah Dugas

Here is the situation for Noah Strong from their Facebook page
In the last few months, Noah has had some health concerns which led to the last incident on August 29th, 2020 being a more severe stroke. Since this day, Noah has battled through many challenges and continues to do so each and every day.
Noah’s medical needs have led the family to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. This has meant both parents Dave Dugas and Jody Luesby Dugas having to leave their home, employment, and beloved daughter back in North Bay in order to be with Noah during this difficult time.
Each day, Noah is showing signs of progress, however, his journey will be taking him to a Rehabilitation Centre where he will continue his brave fight.
Today the North Bay Bulldogs send our thoughts, positivity, and support to Noah Dugas from the North Bay Trappers. Whether it’s a hockey player or a football player- it transcends their sport and affects us all. Your local football community stands with you. Noah, we hope and pray to see you back on the ice – or even football field one day. Stay strong, keep fighting and we wish you a speedy recovery.

If you want to send assistance to the family you can visit their Facebook page

E-transfers are being accepted to noahdugasstrong@gmail.com to help offset their expenses. #NoahStrong #71Strong #NorthBayUnity #northbaysports

We are pushing the camp to September 12/13 and will let you know the times as soon as we have the schedule ready.

JV and SV can register as a team, which will have to be approved by the exec for fair play or as individual players and be placed on a team.  Tyke and PW players will return to their teams and new players placed where needed.  If registering as a team, please register individually and send in a list of your team.

Please register ASAP so we know what kind of numbers we are looking at!  With many sports not going, please feel free to recruit players that have never played before!  We welcome everyone!
