If your child is into football or cheering from the sidelines, Royal City Hyack football has just the thing for your youngster.
Pre-season practices begin for most tackle programs on June 29, while tyke tackle and mini-tyke flag football will begin later in mid-July.
If you are new to the game, come out to the club’s free introductory skill clinics for boys and girls aged five to 13, which will be held on June 13 and 20 from 10 a.m. to noon at Mercer Stadium.
Flag football for kids from five to seven costs $50 for the entire season.
Mini-tykes play in New Westminster or Coquitlam and no experience is required.
Tyke flag football is for all seven-year-olds and experienced six-year-olds. Their season runs from July to November.
There are also tackle programs for children aged eight to 13 and cheerleading for six- to 15-year-olds is also offered.
The regular season begins on Labour Day, followed by as many as three weeks of playoffs.
Pre-season tournaments will be held in August.
Players will be expected to practice two to three times a week with games at various venues in the Lower Mainland played on Sundays.
Registration costs include: all protective equipment, game and practice uniforms, certified coaches, all tournament and league fees, year-end party and awards, free Hyack spirit item for all players and free football for new players.
All the players need to bring are a pair of football cleats and a positive attitude.
