Prince Albert Minor Football's fall 2017 season will start on Sunday, August 27th! Programs are available for Atoms (age 9 & 10), Pee Wees (age 11 & 12) and Bantams (age 13 & 14). All necessary equipment is provided except cleats and water bottles! Register your Pee Wee or Bantam by August 15th and SAVE $75.00 on the registration fee! Online registration is available at www.pariverriders.com.

The Atom program starts Monday August 28th and runs until Friday, September 29th. All of the basic skills required to play football are taught to participants, culminating in their first game of real six-a-side tackle football by the end of the program. The registration fee for Atoms is $100.00.

Following a recent recommendation by Football Canada, the Pee Wees will play 9-player football starting this fall. It is anticipated that reducing the number of players on the field will help players better understand the often complex game that is football, leading to better player development.

The Bantams play standard 12 player Canadian amateur football.

Both the Pee Wee and Bantam programs start on Sunday, August 27th, with our 8 game regular season concluding the week after Thanksgiving in October. All teams will have at least one playoff game in the last full week of October. Online registrations received by August 15th will pay a $175.00 registration fee. Registrations received after August 15th, including walk-ups on Sunday, August 27th, will pay a $250.00 registration fee.

Please note that a $250.00 equipment deposit is also required for all 3 programs. This may be cash or a cheque post-dated for the end of the season. Deposits are returned when all equipment loaned out is turned back in at the end of the season.

More information and online registration is available at www.pariverriders.com. Register your child to play football TODAY!
