REGISTRATION IS OPEN!!

Posted by Russell Minor Football Association. at Jan 30, 2019 4:47PM PST

Registration is now open for the 2019 season!! Click on the registration tab above to register. Help spread the word, we are looking for players and volunteers!!

As Coach Nick mentioned to the kids at the end of today’s practice we are not cleared by the school board to be on the outdoor field yet as it is still too wet. This week’s practice will be as follows
Tuesday – cancelled
Thursday – in the dome from 6pm-7pm
We are hoping that we are able to start our regular Tues/Thurs 6:30pm practices outside the following week. Thank you for your patience.

As well we are in need of Mosquito parent coaches. If you are at the field during practice please step up and come help out at the mosquito level. Sometimes it appears we have a lot of help on the field but these are mainly students. We are still in need of parent volunteers. No football or coaching experience is needed, Coach Maddog (the head of the Mosquito division) is highly skilled and experienced and will walk you through practices.

See you all Thursday!

Registration is now open for the 2018 season!!! New this year, we are now accepting e-transfers!!! (I know this will make many of you VERY happy) The cost for the 2018 season is $250.00 (this includes your refundable $50.00 deposit for borrowed equipment) Register online and send e-transfer (to admin@russellminorfootball.ca – make password Renegades) or bring payment (Cash or Cheque only) either in person to Christina Martin (Address will be provided when necessary) or just bring it with you when you come for equipment pick up!! (Sunday March 25th – Please note equipment will not be handed out to the player until registration has been paid) With the new Sports Dome in Russell being open we are hosting our Sundays in April in the Dome, in full equipment!! We have the Dome for 4 Sundays in April for an hour in the mornings. (See Tentative Season Schedule attached)
COACHES!!! We are in need of coaches. We will need, in advance, a minimum of 2 head coaches, 2 assistant coaches and 3 “trainers” at each division or that division will not be run this year. It is not safe for the kids if we don’t have enough trainers on the field. No experience is necessary to be a coach and/or trainer. Coach Nick will be hosting a coaching clinic. Head coaches will help to run plays during the game and at practices, Assistant coaches will be on the bench with the team on the sideline during games and will assist the head coach in running plays during practices. Trainers will assist the Head and Assistant coaches during practices by holding pads, helping run drills etc. This is a minimal commitment as the league only runs from beginning of April till end of June. In April, we run once per week, May and June twice per week with 2 added Friday evenings. There is a spot on the registration form to register to be a coach/trainer. Please fill this in and help out as we would love to see all 4 divisions get to run this season!! If you are interested in coaching or know someone who is but are not registering a child in the league, please send an email to admin@russellminorfootball.ca with your contact info and what level you would be interested in coaching. This is a great opportunity for volunteer hours for high school students!
Looking forward to a great season!!! If you know anyone who may be interested in learning the game of football or coaching/helping out please pass this email along to them!!!

Looking forward to a great season!
