2020 Spring Flag Football Cancelled

Hello all flag football players!

It is with heavy hearts that we need to announce the cancellation of our 2020 Spring flag football program.

With the ongoing spread of Covid-19, the City of Kitchener and City of Waterloo have both announced that their facilities, including fields will be closed until at least June 30th which means we have no access to fields to run flag football.
We need to support the efforts to control the spread of the virus and ensure the health, safety and well-being of our football community.


Full refunds will be processed for all flag football registrations. 
Please keep in mind that we have approx 400 players registered in both our flag and tackle programs so it will take some time for our registrar to process all the refunds.  Everyone should have their full refund by May 10. We thank you in advance for our patience.

Cash and E-transfer Registrations
If you paid your registration by cash or e-transfer, you will be refunded with a cheque.
IMPORTANT: Please email Deanna our registrar to confirm your current address so that we can ensure your cheque is mailed to the correct location.

Already Cancelled Your Registration?
If you had already cancelled your registration and were charged an admin fee, please email Deanna and she will refund the admin fee.

Fall Flag Football
With the growing popularity of our Spring flag program we have received many emails asking if we also run a fall flag season.  We had decided earlier this year that 2020 would be the year we run our inaugural Fall flag program.  While we don't have any specific details at this time, we are optimistic that we can hit the field this Fall for some flag football.  So stay tuned for further details!

Online Madden Tournament (Xbox, PS4)
In an effort to engage both tackle and flag players and have some fun, the Ontario Provincial Football League will be running a Madden tourmament May 1,2,3.
There will be 2 age divisions U14 and 14+.    Prizes of $250 and an NFL jersey of choice are up for grabs!
More details will be announced next week so stay tuned!!

Recess Guardians - Activ8
Many of you have met our flag football director Nathan Moore.   Nathan has run our flag football program for the past 2 years and we appreciate all his time spent organizing teams, coaches and refs to ensure we have a successful season.
Nathan also works for Recess Guardians and we wanted to pass along a great initiative that they are running for children.
"Active8 Your Home" is a free daily video service in which you will be emailed a video every weekday with a new game idea, as well as a challenge. These games will be simple, good for all ages, and  most importantly, fun!

Please stay safe and thank you for supporting Waterloo Region Football. We are truly disappointed that we need to cancel our flag season but we hope to see you all back on the football field soon.
