2017 Season Opener Sept. 2nd!

After a long hot summer of practices and some tournament/exhibition games the regular season is finally here! It’s going to be a fantastic season and I can’t wait for our home opener this Saturday September 2. We have a full day of games plus some special events planned.

Our midget team will be hosting a fundraiser pancake breakfast starting at 8:30 until 10:30. Come out grab a plate of pancakes and juice or coffee for only $5.00. They’ll have fresh berries and whip cream too

– We’ll have a face painter at the field at 9:00 to paint NLFA logos or anything you or your kids would like painted on your face

– We have a BC Lions helmet we’ll be raffling off for free. Just enter your name for a chance to win at the clothing table. This draw is for NLFA players only.

–  Make a lot of noise and cheer for our teams but please remember be respectful

–  Just a reminder no watching the game along the fence or on the field. You must be in the stands or walking the track without stopping especially by the player benches.

– Come out and support all your teammates all day
