2021 LMFA Return to Football
Hi all, we will keep this page up to date with the latest information on our plans for 2021.
Please understand that many events beyond our control can (and likely will) result in plans changing as we go along.
As always, we want to thank all the front line workers across our area for all the incredible work you have done during this pandemic.
July 23, 2021 – Online registration remains open on the MAIN PAGE about halfway down, there is the link to register.
Online will remain open for at least 2 more weeks (until Aug 6th). We have to order jerseys and equipment in the next few days so the sooner you register the better. We will have to make decisions on number of teams very soon.
The next in-person date is still TBA, text us at 519-852-4465 asking for info and we will send it to you when it’s available.
July 15, 2021 – The registration is open for the fall season. New players use the link on the main page (about half way down), returning players from 2020 should have received a link that will allow you to access a $50 discount per player.
If you are a 2020 returning player and you do not have the link, contact your coach from last year or contact the league at email@example.com and we will provide it to you.
July 13, 2021 – We are hoping to have the web site registration open either today or tomorrow.
As well, in person sign up dates have been announced as well, you can register using Visa, Mastercard, debit or cash.
Registration is $350 for new players, $300 for 2020 returning players. All equipment provided except cleats.
Returning players will get the discount at all in person sign ups, as well as on the website registration.
In person sign up is as follows:
Thursday July 15 from 5pm to 8pm
Sunday July 18 from 1pm to 4pm
Monday July 19 from 5pm to 8pm
Each day at 100 Bessemer Road, unit 1 in the parking lot (weather permitting), or inside unit 1.
(Masks have to be worn if we are inside.)
July 9, 2021 – Step 3 in Ontario will allow contact sports without restrictions. So, tackle football will return this fall.
This is of course GREAT news – and first up thank you to everyone who got vaccinated and followed the safety protocols during this long lockdown. Getting vaccinated and staying safe is and will be the path out this pandemic.
We are continuing to work to get ready for the season. We now anticipate starting on time on August 17th.
We plan on having registration open on or about July 15th. Watch this web site, your email, and our social media for all the details. There are still details to sort out but today is a day to celebrate !!! So, have a great weekend and get ready to return to the field this fall – FOOTBALL IS BACK
June 21, 2021 – We still do not know for sure whether contact sports (tackle football) will be permitted this fall but we remain optimistic about it. We anticipate some restrictions and regulations to remain (gathering limits, PPE, etc).
We are prepared to operate tackle football this fall, and we are prepared to operate flag football only. Ideally, we are prepared to offer both options for all age groups but that is not certain at this time.
We expect to open registration very soon, with 2020 returning players signing up first. Watch your email, social media, and keep checking this web site for updates. Thank you for your patience and understanding, we are looking forward to seeing all of you on the field this fall.
May 21, 2021 – Here are the details of the Ontario government’s 3 step road map to re-open the province.
As of now, outdoor activity is open but no football activity is permitted (no playing or practicing team sports.
Step One (which should start mid June) will allow groups of 10 to gather for skills and drills socially distanced.
The key to getting to Step One, Two, and Three is getting everyone possible vaccinated. So #GetVaccinatedASAP
We are working on our Return to Football procedures and hopefully we can be up and running this summer for skills and drills.
May 7, 2021 – We hope everyone is staying safe and keeping as active as possible during our current stay at home order. We still have no further information on possible plans for the summer or fall. We remain optimistic for fall, but nothing is certain right now. Registration will open soon, with returning players up first. Spaces will be limited based on government rules and regulations. We hope to have further updates very soon. Thank You and stay strong. We will get thru this together.
April 1, 2021 – Our winter indoor flag football program is on hold for now. We did not plan events for April or May.
Our summer plans include skills camps and flag football for beginners. We will look at flag football for experienced players if there is demand for it.
Fall plans will of course depend on what will be allowed by government regulations. We will be following all guidelines from Football Canada as well. If we are able to offer tackle football in any form, we are ready to suit up and take the field in August. If only flag is allowed, we are ready to offer flag football to as many players as we safely have on the field. We will post our return to play guidelines and all other information here as soon as we can.
