White Rock South Surrey Titans wrap ‘hugely successful’ minor football season

Online registration for spring 2024 already underway

As the holidays near, the White Rock South Surrey Titans minor football organization is celebrating the wrap of an active and triumphant season.

The White Rock Titans Atom (age 8-9) team are the Vancouver Mainland Football League and BC Professional Football Association provincial champions, in the first-ever age category in B.C.

The Atom squad won the provincial title at McLeod Stadium in Langley on Nov. 25 vs. Coquitlam, winning with a 42-16 final score. Titans MVP was awarded to No. 10 Madden Haynes.

In addition, the WRSS Titans Junior Bantam team (age 12-13) won the VMFL division title at home at South Surrey Athletic Park on Nov. 12 vs. New Westminster Hyacks, winning 32-0. They then went to the BCPFA provincials on Nov 26. in Langley, but lost to the Saanich Wolverines, giving the Titans the No. 2 spot in the province.

“It was an amazing season – hugely successful – right from spring to our fall program. We ended up right where we wanted to,” said WRSS Titans president Drew Kightley.

“We had eight full teams, everybody had a great time and the kids learned lots… now we take a few weeks off.”

Registration is already open for spring 2024 minor football, he noted.

“We’re already off to a great start! It looks like we’ll probably have about a 35- to 40-team spring flag season, which puts us ahead of where we were in 2023,” Kightley said.

“We continue to grow and that’s what it’s all about – getting more kids out there playing this great sport.”

The Titans cheer team also had a phenomenal season, placing placed first in the annual VMFL Cheer Competition Nov. 18 in the junior mixed squad category.

As a volunteer-based organization, Kightley said they depend on everyone, noting how so many people give so much of their own time – often several days a week for practice as well as games – for several weeks and months without fail.

“We depend on every parent and every person,” he said, emphasizing the work the coaches, team managers and others do silently and efficiently throughout the season.

“A huge thanks to our team managers, our coaches – to all the people who put in a lot of extra work behind the scenes, who really ensure that the organization is ready to go and runs extremely smoothly. There’s a lot more to it than just showing up.”

Practices for the 2024 spring flag football season start in March and games are played from April to early June.
