New 2022 MGFA Tackle Football Program
We are excited to introduce a brand-new program at Eastman Raiders in 2022. This will be our first year participating in the Manitoba Girls Football Association (MGFA) 2022 Tackle Football League. The program offers spring tackle football to girls born between 2005 and 2012 in two age groups:
- Junior Division 10-13 year old.
- Senior Division 14-17 year old.
The games are played in a six-on-six format with a reduced size field. While these divisions are competitive, we are primarily concerned with teaching the fundamental skills and techniques involved in the game in a safe and controlled environment. All of our programs emphasize the continued development of skills. Because of this approach to coaching the program is open to anyone regardless of experience.
We must provide the league with potential player numbers in March in order to participate in the league. Anyone who is interested in playing is asked to use the form on this page to express their interest. As soon as you register your interest, we will keep you updated on any developments and milestone events for the season ahead.
Formal registration will open around the beginning of April, current COVID-19 Manitoba Health Orders permitting.
Registration Fees for the 2022 MGFA Tackle Season have not yet been determined as the cost of the MGFA and Football Manitoba fees for 2022 has not yet been confirmed.
- Jumpstart and KidSport are national charities administered by Canadian Tire and Sport Manitoba respectively that helps to remove barriers and assist less fortunate children to participate in sport – so all kids can play.
- Based on demonstrated need, assistance is available to children between the ages of 5 and 18 to help offset the cost of registration fees.
Registration costs include all equipment, except for cleats (footwear) and mouth guards. Football is affordable!
