Maddogs Gearing Up for Fall

by Janine Hayward

The Maddog executive have been busy putting safety protocols together for the upcoming fall season. They are working alongside Saskatoon Minor Football to make the fall tackle season as safe as possible for our young players. There are decisions that will be made in the next upcoming week that might involve smaller teams, which may result in fewer players and coaches on the field at one time. One of the outcomes may be 6-man tackle teams for this season. SMF Coordinator, Brian Guebert, is working with Football Sask and Football Canada alongside Sask Health to help with decisions to make football possible and safe in the fall.

The Maddogs are hosting a free conditioning camp starting August 17. This is a camp for peewee and bantam players. There will be separate nights for each age group to keep social distancing possible. This is conditioning so there will be no contact and players will be distancing on the field. Players must register at http://maddogsreg.5design.pro/ to be eligible to attend. Peewee nights will be from 6:30pm – 8pm August 17, 19, 24 and 26. Bantams will be from 6:30pm – 8pm August 18, 20, 25 and 27.

For those who have already registered for fall tackle, please keep checking the Maddogs website, maddogsfootball.ca or the Maddog Facebook page for updates. Anyone wishing to register for Maddogs Fall Tackle please go to kflnz.com. If you would like to register for Maddogs Flag football please register at www.saskatoonminorfootball.com. Flag Football accommodates kids from grades 1 to 7.

Keep in mind anyone entering our football field will have temperatures checked and must sanitize before entering and when leaving the field. There is a list of protocols on the Maddog website. Our priority is keeping our young players as safe as possible.

The Maddogs are also holding a bottle drive on August 12 and 13. They are asking for any donations of bottles and cans to be dropped off at the field.

Thanks so much for your support.
