The Bantam level is for U16 players, or players who will turn 14 or 15 years old this calendar year (2004, 2005 birth years) with games played 12v12 and identical to the full Canadian game.
Maximum team roster sizes are 36 players. Players are evaluated on a number of factors including skill, speed, attitude and coachability. Those who do not make the final roster are able to tryout for another team in the league.
The Bantam program will hold evaluations through the summer and begin regular season practices in July. Generally, practice will be three times per week and a weekend game until the end of the season. Depending on play-off success, the season could run until the first week of November.
The season fee ($520) includes the loan of equipment (helmet, shoulder pads, knee pads, game and practice pants, practice jersey, mouthguard), t-shirt and game jersey to keep, all team sessions including the end of season banquet. Additional fees include the Football Canada National Registration fee ($54) and any individual fundraising the team chooses to undertake (to be discussed with parents).
Optional costs include protective girdle (if player doesn't already own one), photography and replacement mouthguards. There is a $50 non-refundable component of the season fee that goes toward equipment purchases and field rental during the try-out period.
