2020 SEASON AGE DIVISIONS
This year we are changing our program structure to provide a better opportunity for ALL players to develop their skills and compete at the highest level and align with the OUA model of developing and accessing player potential. As a result, we are moving away from the tryout sessions and introducing a training camp that will allow for progressive training that will provide players a greater benefit, as they are fully immersed within the program, strengthening relationships with our coaches and staff, and developing their skills on a week-by-week basis.
Our training camp will start on March 26 with 2 in Gym sessions dedicated to Safe Contact. The Jr Gaels Football Club has been leading the way for many years in terms of player safety, and Safe Contact is an integral part of our curriculum to ensure our athletes, old and new, know the techniques to play the game safely. This will include our combine to benchmark your overall performance. Equipment will be handed out and we will take the field until April 23rd,, at which time the coaching staff will make the final selections for the team dress rosters. Players selected to a dress roster will be assessed weekly for game day roster and depth chart based on attendance, practice performance and discipline. No starting position is guaranteed, and you will have to earn your spot weekly.
*Last regular season game is July 4th, Playoff games July 11 and 18 with Championship on July 25
