The Bantam Division is for Grade 7-8‘S. Our league exposes players to the game of football. It develops and enhances the fundamental skills of all players. Our Spring Football increases the players understanding of the rules, concepts and strategies of football by participating in Football 101 a series of short classroom sessions to enhance skills and strategies learned on the field. It also improves players’ fitness level through a series of fun and challenging drills.
