2017 Football Season

Welcome to 2017 season of Banting Football.  We WILL be having both a senior and a junior team!!!.  Practice starts the second day of school and goes EVERY day until the first game.  After the first game, a practice schedule with an average of three practices a week plus one game will be in place.  The schedule usually comes out the beginning of the second week of school.  It is be posted at the link below and at this website.

What you need to play football.

All equipment is provided by the school, except cleats.  Please bring water and cleats for the first practice.  NO experience is needed.  Usually only 30% of the Junior team has ever played football before.  And the team usually comprises half grade 9's and half grade 10's.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Cost:

Cost to play football is $250.  This covers all our travel expenses, equipment rental, team dinner, pizza lunch, T-shirts, and first aid equipment.  An additional $50 check (please make it a separate check) is the equipment deposit.  This is returned when the equipment is returned clean at the end of the season.  Payment plan options are available to those who it would benefit.

We have never turned somebody away because of financial issues.  We use Jump Start to help when it is needed.  If a player needs assistance, please speak to Mr. Haas and he will get things set up for you.  We are committed to making sure everybody who wants to play .....can plan.

2017 Junior Football Study Hall

Players will be required to attend MANDATORY study hall once per week.  We take academics very seriously.  With the new common lunch, it will allow the team to attend together.  These dates will be posted when the game schedule is out.  Grade 10 students will be able to help grade 9 students with work.  Grade 11 and 12 students will be optional to the study hall, some will be attending as tutors as well.  Our goal is to get half the team on the honour roll, 80% or higher, on the first report card marks.  We have been very close the last few years.
