    Hello Bears!

    I can’t believe we’re already half way through the summer! Now that August is here we’re only days away from the start of exhibition games, tournaments and the regular season!

    The first team to get some game action is our Atom team who’ll be playing at halftime of the Langley Rams home opener tomorrow August 6. Let’s get out and watch some great junior football, cheer on the Rams, cheer loudly for our Bears and have a great time. Don’t forget your Bear Wear and represent us proudly! Game starts at 7:00 tickets: adults $12.00 students (12-18) $7.00 and youth are FREE. For more information on the Rams check out www.langleyrams.com

    JUNE NEWSLETTER

     

    Hello Bears!

    Now that all teams are practicing I’d like to welcome you to the 2016 season! To our returning players great to have you back. To our new players welcome to the association. If you could please take a minute to read the following information:

    When we practice on the turf I’d like to remind parents that no one except designated team personal are allowed on the field. That includes leaning on the fence. Please feel free to walk or run on the track

    Don’t forget to bring extra water to practice. The temperature on the turf can get very hot in the summer.

    REGISTRATION: We still have space for players at Flag, Atom, Bantam and Midget. Please reach out to your friends and have them come out and play with the BEARS

    SCHEDULE: The most asked question throughout the summer is when does the season start and when will the schedule be released? The season will start on the Labour day long weekend. The schedule should be released (Flag – JB) mid August. Bantam & Midget will be released late August

    CLOTHING: we will have select clothing available at the field soon. New this year we are offering a much larger selection of clothes and accessories available to purchase online. Please visit www.kiwican.ca  to look over the selection. We’ll have samples at the field starting June 29.  The first order deadline is July 15th. All purchases will be delivered to the field to distribute

    FUNDRAISING: On June 11th we held a poker night fundraiser which was a HUGE success. There have been requests to hold another one in the fall. We are currently trying to book something and will announce the date (and start selling tickets) soon

    The NFL pool tickets are ready and will be distributed at practice. This is a joint VCFL/NLFA fundraiser. The more tickets we sell the more money we’ll raise for our program. Please sell all your tickets and ask for more if you can sell more. We WON’T be holding our ticket raffle this year so this is the biggest fundraiser of the season!

    ADVERTISING: Do you own a business and want to advertise on game days? Know someone who would like to advertise with us? We hope to have an advertising program this season and we’re looking for individuals or companies who would like to advertise. Please contact me for more details (information below)
