The Monthly Meeting is delayed a week in an effort to hold it in the Bear Creek Clubhouse
Bear Creek Clubhouse?
If you’d love to get involved, but can’t be an executive member, the association can always find something for you to help out with. If you have a particular expertise that would benefit the club (ie: carpentry, bookkeeping, foods & services, painting, electrical, any kind of merchandising, etc.) please come and let us know. We are always looking to expand our network or resources and for more people to pitch in.
If Clubhouse is still not available, the meeting will be held, as usual at:
16080 82nd Avenue, Surrey
Please park on the street and walk in.
NSMF will be available at Bear Creek Park for registration Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm and Saturday mornings from 10:00 am to noon starting this Tuesday, June 12th.
The Vancouver Mainland Football League (VMFL) will be introducing a new format at Atom football starting with the 2018 Fall Season.
Atom players ages 8 and 9 will play a modified Flag football game. Players will wear protective football equipment and FLAGS on the hips. Blocking will be allowed at the line of scrimmage. There will be no tackling. The ball carrier whose flag is removed by defensive player will be considered tackled. All other rules will remain the same as 2017.
The Atom level will be an introduction to padded football where players will be taught safe techniques for blocking and “Heads Up Football” while the tackling is taken out of the game. This will allow this age group time to transition from Flag Football to Tackle focusing on the safety and building on the football fundamentals.
Please see below, a supporting statement from the President of the BCCFA (BC Community Football) for the VMFL moving to Atom Flag.
Statement from Joe Gluska – BCCFA President
To all concerned,
As President of BC COMMUNITY FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION, I support the position that the VMFL has taken on U -10 Atom football. Being progressive in today’ society ensures football will survive. It is not only North American society that wants to limit or eliminate contact for all youth under 13. The VMFL has taken an important step to ensure parents continue signing up their children to play this heritage Canadian game.
We continue to see rule changes to protect athletes at all levels, this is a big step at protecting football in British Columbia.
