Spring Flag Registration is CLOSED.
Welcome to 2021! We hope you all had an enjoyable holiday season. Looking forward to the 2021 Spring and Fall seasons, I wanted to share with you some upcoming events. More details will be provided as we move forward, so please follow us here on on social media for updates.
Spring Flag usually starts with registration in late Feb, practices in mid March and games starting late April. We are planning to go ahead, based on Covid restrictions/guidelines.
Spring Flag Football is open to boys and girls ages 6-18. Teams are built by the coaches and players will register to their respective team. If you do not have a team yet, or are new to North Surrey Football, you will be able to add your name to our waitlist.
Watch for updates when registration is open.
Tentatively, the below are the VMFL Jamboree dates. Depending on any restrictions that may be in place, there may be format changes (i.e. less games per day, less games per field, games split over 2 days by division, etc). When we know what the provincial restrictions are at that time, we will provide more details.
This is something new this year that the VMFL has started working on. More details will be available in the coming weeks.

North Surrey Football Family,
It was a hard morning to get the news that the VMFL has had to cancel the rest of the season. The latest numbers and travel restrictions definitely brought things to a quick halt. I wish we could have seen it out the end, I know the kids were looking forward to it.
I would like to thank each of you, Parents, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, babysitters, neighbours… whoever took the time to support the kids this year in their journey and bring them to practices and games. I would especially like to thank you for trusting North Surrey Football with their safety. All of our volunteers from executive to coaches, managers and trainers, knew going into this there would be bumps, but over everything, the kid’s safety is always our first concern. Many of you had tough decisions to make about participation this season and we understood that. So thank you for trusting in us.
When we started practices in July, we didn’t know if we would be able to have any games, but with guidance from our Provincial sports authority and the hard work of the executive team and league, we were able to show that we could play football, that Cheerleaders could cheer and stunt through these uncertain times.
There are still some season wrap up activities including team pictures, cheer pageant and equipment/uniform return, so please keep in contact with your teams as information will be shared with you.
This will definitely be a Football & Cheer Season to remember, and here’s to hoping that things can go back to normal in 2021. I miss our game days with the burgers and fries cooking, music playing, bleachers full of fans and kids playing together long after their games are done. I want to go back there and I am sure you do too.
Watch out for information in Feb/March about plans for the 2021 season.
Again, THANK YOU!! We appreciate you all and wouldn’t be able to do any of this if it weren’t for you believing in us and being a part of our #footballfamily.
President, North Surrey Minor Football
Each year the Vancouver Mainland Football League (VMFL) will award a $500.00 education grant to a qualifying Bantam player, Midget player and Senior Cheerleader. However in the event a player receives a grant at the Bantam level, the player will not be eligible at the Midget Level. Players and Cheerleaders must be in their senior year of each level (17 year olds are permitted at the Midget and Cheerleading levels). The grant is to be used for post secondary education at the university, college, Technical or vocational level. Correspondence or night school programs may not be acceptable.
Players wishing to be considered for a grant must apply in writing to the VMFL Education Grant Committee by December 31 of the current year. All references, including academic records, must accompany application.
Week 8 Games Cancelled
North Surrey Minor Football wishes all it’s players, cheerleaders and families a happy and safe Halloween. Be sure to bring some candy for your coaches and managers!
Due to Covid limitations we will be playing at limited fields this season, Please pay close attention to the field your team is scheduled at.
Please note!! Most fields have limitations on spectators due to Covid-19. These limitations are put in place by each City and not the Clubs themselves. Please be respectful of these limitations.. Failure to do so could result in spectators not being allowed for future games, or your removal from the venue.
Spectators must social distance.
Checking AQ Index (and just looking out the window), Surrey is still at 7 HIGH RISK. PRACTICES for tonight are CANCELLED
If you missed your scheduled gear night, you need to speak to your team manager and plan to come in tonight to get gear.
If you need to swap anything, you can come in tonight to swap. Make sure whatever you are swapping has been sanitized first.
Watch your team pages as coaches may be adding extra practice days next week to make up the missed days due to air quality.
Practice update for Tuesday September 15, 2020
Due to air quality advisories practices tonight will be cancelled.
Lions gear issue will go forward as planned
