The current coronavirus pandemic has made planning for fall programs uncertain. Recent guidance from Football Canada, OFA and the City have placed severe restrictions on any return to play strategies.
As a result, and with concerns to the health and safety of our players, coaches, volunteer and parents foremost in our minds, we have elected to suspend all Tackle football and Cheer programming for 2020 and will set our sights on 2021.
We did not make this decision lightly and share the disappointment that many feel in taking these steps, however we believe this decision is in the best interests of all.
We look forward to Return to Play in 2021!

With the City cancelling access to all sports facilities and fields until at least June 30, the club is cancelling the spring flag and girls touch programs this year. Emails have been sent to all participants in these programs. We hope to revisit for participation in 2021.
This is a decision that NCAFA and the Eagles made jointly. It does NOT include fall tackle or cheer at this point. There will be more information on this later and I will share with you as it becomes available.
I hope your families are well and that you are staying indoors as much as possible to avoid this pandemic.
If you have any questions please contact Stephen Dean at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We had a fantastic turnout at the Midget info session held last week. Some 50 participants came out to hear our plans for midget football in 2020.
This season will see both the Nepean Eagles and Myers Riders midget teams formally join forces under a new name and color. The team will henceforth be known as the Nepean Broncos with colours blue and orange.
The Broncos first head coach is Scott Boxall. Scott has been a long time NCAFA coach and recently won the Bantam A Championships in 2019. He takes the helm of a team supported by two strong organization who have a long history of success. In fact Nepean and Myers formally joined forces in 2003 at the midget level.
We look forward to the launch of the Broncos this year with a spring camp set for June 23-25. All Bronco players are to register online for Midget today at the Eagles website.
For more information please contact Scott Boxall or Rob McLaurin.
