Tackle is on for 2021!

By KH 06/15/2021, 8:30am EDT

Tackle is moving forward, but many Covid restrictions remain for 2021!

The Club is proceeding with acceptance of tackle registrations for tryout camp which will commence next week. Camp will run on designated nights (initially Wednesday / Thursday is planned) from June 23 to first week of August. It is our hope we will receive provincial approval to issue equipment and engage in contact drills in early August. Until then camp will consist of skill development, conditioning, system implementation and film study (where applicable) etc.

We just received approval last Thursday to proceed with field use with a maximum of 4 x 10 player groupings (prior to that it was 1 group of 10 for the entire field). This was a major element delaying our ability to move forward. Many thanks to the City for the flexibility shown us in this regard.

Coaches will be contacting players shortly to provide the location and time for their individual teams’ practices. The Club will be running Mosquito to Midget teams this year. Tyke players will be directed to Myers this year due to low response at our final decision date.

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. Nightly check-in, social distancing, masks, etc. Player and volunteer safety is top of mind and while Covid trends are going in the right direction, we will continue to remain vigilant.

All players MUST be registered with the OFA before being allowed on the field.

Flag is on for 2021!

By KH 06/15/2021, 8:15am EDT

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.

For questions, please contact as follows:

Girls Flag .. Lina Evraire … evrairel@outlook.com

Boys/Open Flag … John Wong … johnt.wong27@gmail.com

We look forward to your participation this year as we shake off the doldrums of Covid 19.

NCAFA - Changing the way we play Non-Contact Monday January 25, 2021

(OTTAWA) – The National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA) is excited to announce changes to their non-contact programs offered throughout the National Capital region. Building on the great success of its girls touch football program, NCAFA will be transitioning to now offer flag football to both Girls and Boys (ages 8 - 21). This transition to flag football will provide a new and better opportunity for girls who participate in the non-contact program. The introduction of the boys flag football program is a wonderful development to the programs offered by NCAFA. Keep your eye on www.ncafa.ca for further updates.

The season is scheduled to run from May through the end of June 2021, while continuing to follow provincial and municipal directives associated with COVID-19. The safety of players, coaches, referees and families remains paramount while seeking innovative solutions so our valuable sports programs can endure and thrive.

“ the introduction of flag football programs for both girls and boys within our participating clubs is a great opportunity for kids to get on the field and experience a great sport. Whether it be tackle or flag or both, NCAFA has a goal to make sure that every child interested in football has a chance to experience it - no matter what and we look forward to making this a reality with the continued support of the OSEG Foundation.” said Gawain Harding, President - NCAFA.

Through NCAFA's continued partnership with the OSEG Foundation, “Our huddle includes everyone” remains a mission at the forefront of our objectives to ensure that all players have the opportunity on the play either contact or non-contact football on the field, with the aim to build not only essential football skills but also develop life skills and friendships for years to come. The league encourages sportsmanship on and off the field, and provides fun and exciting competition while promoting a healthy, active lifestyle for Ottawa youth.

National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA) - A 66 year old league and counting, NCAFA is the oldest and largest youth football league in the Ontario Football Alliance. With over 2200 players from Ottawa and the surrounding areas, NCAFA is one of the most inclusive leagues, providing opportunities to kids from the ages of 8 - 21 to learn the game of football in all formats (contact and non-contact). OSEG Foundation – The OSEG Foundation goal is to ensure all children and youth in our community have the opportunity to play, learn and develop through sports. At the OSEG Foundation, we believe that by sharing our passion for sports through structured youth development programs, kids will have an opportunity to excel and reach their full potential. The OSEG Foundation will be a catalyst for social change by leveraging the power of sport to improve the lives of children and youth.
