“The Inaugural Football Ontario Fall Cup will be the ultimate culmination of an unbelievable season of amatuer football in the province. We cannot wait to host the OFFL and NCAFA to crown a provincial championship and most importantly celebrate all of the hard work by our athletes, coaches and volunteers. This will be the beginning of a new tradition in Ontario which will allow us to put our sport at center stage for all to see.” says Aaron Geisler, Executive Director, Football Ontario.

This season - our first season back since the pandemic began, has afforded all of football's volunteers an opportunity to come together to get our kids back on the field, in a context none of us were ready for, under a unified umbrella we worked years to achieve. What an achievement for all volunteers, centres, coaches, boards, players and parents -- to be entering our first playoff season despite our context. The opportunity to have our champions play the NCAFA champions for the inaugural Fall Football Cup is just the cherry on top - a true testament to the power of collaboration, and putting the players and our sport first. We can't wait!" says Jodine Tavares, President of the OFFL.

Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund Grant

By KH 10/18/2021, 10:30am EDT

The Nepean Eagles Football Club Receives Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund Grant

In February, Canadian Tire Corporation announced an additional $12 million commitment to Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund to help sport and recreation organizations build back sport and play in Canada. Jumpstart conducted a State of Sport study via Ipsos which revealed the pandemic has not only impacted current access to sport and play but has real long-term effects as well. The Eagles and the communities it serves have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.

We are pleased to announce that the Eagles recently received confirmation that we will be provided with grant support through the last round of Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. In 2021, Jumpstart has now disbursed funding to more than 1,200 organizations across Canada through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know the positive impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations, and ultimately, on kids across the country.

With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to augment staffing to support programming as well as a review of policies and procedures aimed at enabling kids to be properly equipped in order to play safely at our fields.

Please let me know if you have any questions and/or if you are interested in joining our team.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Stephen Dean

For Immediate Release 

July 22, 2021

Football Ontario Announces Unifying Football League for all of Ontario 

Football Ontario to launch the Ontario Community Football League to enhance football delivery in all Ontario Communities.

Hamilton, Ontario - Football Ontario and the Football Ontario Alignment Task Force are proud to announce the launch of the Ontario Community Football League’s (OCFL) which will be made up of summer contact, fall contact and flag provincial football leagues; the Ontario Summer Football League (OSFL), Ontario Fall Football League (OFFL) and Ontario Community Flag Football League (OCFFL).  The OSFL and OFFL will be the only sanctioned provincial Under 18 contact football leagues in Ontario providing a streamlined process for delivery and participation.

The goal of this new structure is to centralize and standardize the football experience in Ontario and provide contact and non-contact football opportunities for all under one unified brand and umbrella. This alignment initiative creates one destination for all football delivery within the province for Under 18 football for both boys and girls. Through this alignment the organization will create harmonized communication, marketing, business practices, policy/procedures, and football delivery across the province. 

“The work of the alignment committee, members and partners on developing this new delivery model will provide football in Ontario the strongest opportunity to return to the sport coming out of the pandemic. Clarifying to parents and participants the pathway to getting into football is essential to growing the game. The OCFL and its three provincial leagues will do just that.” says Don Hamilton President Football Ontario

The mission of  the OCFL is:

To Provide Inclusive Football Opportunities for All Ontario Communities.

The vision of the OCFL is:

To Be the Leader in Sport Delivery in the Province.

The six core values of the OCFL are:

  1. Community Building
  2. Athlete Centered
  3. Development Focused
  4. Inclusive Opportunities
  5. Innovative Delivery
  6. Excellence

 

This new structure will ensure meaningful competition for all of its members with development and wellness of all participants at the forefront of delivery fully compliant with Football Canada’s Long Term Player Development Model. Football Ontario will be collaborating with multiple stakeholders and organizations in the public and private sector to help drive growth and development of community football through the OCFL and its leagues. This collaborative approach to delivering provincial football will help to drive down costs and increase participation.

All of the leagues, both contact and non-contact, will have standardized age groups available for both male and female participants.

  • U10 (8 and 9 years old)
  • U12 (10 and 11 years old)
  • U14 (12  and 13 years old)
  • U16 (14 and 15 years old)
  • U18+ (16, 17 and 18 years old)

 

The OCFL will contain three provincial leagues, spanning over six different regions, including five different age categories; over forty community associations and provide football opportunities to over 8000 participants.  

Action kicks off this fall with the OFFL for U10, U12 and U14. The OFFL is preparing to deliver U16 and U18+ and this will be determined by whether or not high school football resumes during the fall season in each specific region. The OSFL will be hitting the ground in 2022 and applications are currently open for all centers.
