Flag is on for 2021!
The Nepean Eagles received approval from the City this morning to proceed with our Flag Football program while also adhering to Covid 19 protocols. We have been given the green light to proceed with player groupings on the field to support 4 quadrants of 10 players each … up from 10 players for an entire field previously. This was a show stopper that has been removed with significant help from City staff!
As such, the Nepean Eagles will be finalizing rosters by Friday of this week with a view to starting twice weekly practices and games (60 minutes duration) starting June 21st. We are looking at 2 nights per week in June, July for games/practices and will end August 9th with a year end tournament .. looking at a July tournament as well to be held on a weekend. We heard you on the survey response and are scheduling games/practices on week nights during the summer.
Coaches will be contacting players next week to provide the location and time for their teams practices and games. Players will be provided with a list of requirements they and their parents must follow as there still remains a number of Covid 19 protocols to follow.
We will be finalizing our rosters this Friday. There remains the possibility that those who have not yet registered may be wait-listed as we have a limited number of coaches and teams. Please register as soon as possible. All players MUST be registered with the OFA before being allowed on the field.

We look forward to your participation this year as we shake off the doldrums of Covid 19.
See you at the field!
President, Nepean Eagles Football Club
