2022 First Down Registration

Online registration for the 2022 First Down Program is now open. First Down is open to everyone born on or between 2015 and 2017.

The First Down program, an initiative of Football Canada, is a non-contact program for all children and introduces the game of football through age-appropriate games and drills in a safe, fun environment.

Eight one-hour sessions develop fundamental movement skills like running, throwing, catching, and kicking. The program incorporates football related movements, activities, and skills to help build physical literacy.

Our program lasts four weeks and is conducted entirely at our field in Steinbach. The program does not require the participant to provide any equipment.
