HAMILTON MINOR FALL FOOTBALL REGISTRATION - NOW OPEN
All kids dream of putting on the BLACK and GOLD of the hometown Hamilton Tiger Cats. Now your child can experience the opportunity to represent Hamilton as a member of the Hamilton Jr. Tiger-cats. (New minor fall programming both house league and rep is now Jr Ticats name).
As a result of our recent $118,000 trillium grant, HFA received 386 new helmets for the 2014 season with more coming in 2015. Also our Hamilton Football Association safe contact CANADA wide led initiative has resulted in all our head coaches getting Football Canada certified and trained in new safe contact coaching methods.
Unfortunately the result for some of our previous coaches that did not complete the training, we sadly have had to ask a few to step back from previous head coaching roles. We did request and hope they stay on as part of existing coaching staff and our HFA family.
We are aware you may have choices for youth football in Hamilton. We also understand deciding on the best football experience for your child has many factors. Our commitment to educate, train, develop our coaches to keep your children safe is second to none.
Please visit the new website www.jrtcats.com for more details on the HFA football experience.
