Our football season begins in August. Most communities in both leagues (VMFL and VCFL) hold annual tournaments. The tournaments involve teams from all levels of football: Atom (7-9 yrs.), Pee Wee (10-11 yrs.), Junior Bantam (JB) (12 – 13 yrs.), Bantam (14 – 15 yrs.) and Midget (16 – 18 yrs.). A number of mini games are played over a period of one, two or three days depending the number teams registered. Our association provides football officials for these games. This is our pre-season; we use these games to train our new officials and to keep our members tuned up for the regular season that kicks off on Labour Day. The regular season is normally ten weeks long followed by playoff games and the community and Provincial finals.
