Cloverdale minor football struck gold in Chilliwack a couple weekends ago.
All three teams came home with gold medals after winning all their games in Chilliwack’s annual Chilli Bowl summer football tournament Aug. 21-22 at Townsend Park.
“The teams did really well, going undefeated, winning gold medals in their respective divisions,” said Yeera Sami, president of the Cloverdale Community Football Association. “They built on the previous weekend and gave a solid performance, improving as the games went on. Confidence and comfort level were the key factors.”
Sami said he was proud of the teams and their coaches.
“We are now looking forward to a very successful season.”
That regular season kicks off in September as league play begins for all teams and runs until December.
CCFA’s in-house flag program is for 5 to 7 year olds. There is a nine-man contact team for 8 to 9 year olds, the Lions, which participates in the VCFL. CCFA also has a nine-man flag team, the Tigers, which is also for 8 and 9 year olds, which plays in the VMFL.
Cloverdale also competes in the VMFL in 12-man tackle leagues in Peewee (10-11), Jr. Bantam (12-13), Bantam (14-15), and Midget (16-18).
Sami said Cloverdale is still looking for players for their in-house flag football league for kids ages 5-7 and for their Atom division flag football team (for 8 to 9 year olds.)
“Registration is still open.”
