Club Statement

Bryson Friesen

The Eastman Raiders Football Club is saddened to learn of the passing this week of former player Bryson Friesen.

Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

Return to Play – Tackle Football

Tackle Football

Club Statement – Return to Play

Following the release of the Football Manitoba’s (FM) Return to Play protocols just over a week ago, the Club underwent an extensive review of the protocols and came to the decision that in the interests of player safety, we will not be undertaking a tackle program this year.

The Club also recognized that with the FM Return to Play requirement that players do not participate in any other organized sports, our numbers would be so depressed that we wouldn’t be able to have enough players to play games internally.

Our decision not to offer a tackle program this year has been mirrored by all of the other Manitoba Minor Football Association (MMFA) Clubs, who have also confirmed that they will not have a tackle program this year.

Looking ahead, the Board will now be looking at setting up a Winter/Spring indoor camp with a view to, hopefully, having a more normal season in 2021.

Club Statement – Return to Tackle Football

As many of you may have seen, Football Manitoba’s Tackle Football – Return to Play protocols have been approved by the Province.

We know that many of you will be as excited as we are at the prospect of tackle football returning this season and you will have questions.

We’re looking at the protocols to see how we can make this work and we’ll hopefully be able to make a further announcement soon. Thank you all for your patience.

We’re Back with our Summer Skills Camp

Raiders Summer Skills Camp

We’re Back!!!!

After a long shutdown, we’re finally able to get back to some football. Although we may not be back to full play (yet), we are able to offer our Summer Skills Camp.

In order to get us back on the field, we’re introducing some new protocols for our players and staff.  You can read more about those by clicking on this link.

Back to Play Update

As many of you will have seen, Football Manitoba have reopened the registration portal for their flag football program. After several months of uncertainty this is a welcome development in the process of getting us back on the field.

The club is currently working with Football Manitoba and the Manitoba Minor Football Association to come up with a “Return to Play” policy that would allow us to offer skills-based/position training camps and 1st Down programs for the Raiders community. We are also looking at ways in which we can start moving towards playing tackle football, although due to the necessary close proximity of players, this may prove a bit more of a challenge.

Once we have a clear path forward and registration is open for our various programs we’ll be posting here and through our various social media platforms.

Message From Football Canada

On behalf of our football nation, we would like to express our most sincere gratitude to the front-line and essential workers across Canada. Their commitment and courage in the face of daily adversity is a testament to the strength of our communities.
 
A ‘Return to football’ is something our Members, stakeholders, partners, local associations, volunteers and fans anticipate as an annual calling.
 
In 2020 the return is facing challenges on many fronts due to the Coronavirus pandemic which will demand a thoughtful strategy.

1st Down

Now that the 1st Down Program has finished for this year, on behalf of everyone involved with the Eastman Raiders, a huge thank you to all our players that signed up to participate in this season’s 1st Down Program.  It’s always great to see you on the field having so much fun.  Hope to see you all again next year, either in 1st Down or in the Tackle program.

I’d also like to say a huge thank you to all of our volunteer coaches who helped to make the program such a success.

Finally, after 8 years of being involved with the Raiders, our 1st Down Coordinator, Coach Charli, has decided to call time on her involvement with the Raiders.  On behalf of the Board and all of the players you have coached and inspired, thank you.  Don’t be a stranger.
