Unlike most other minor sports that a child may participate in, Red Deer Minor Football provides each player with the protective equipment that is needed to play football. They have worked very hard over the years and spent a great deal of money to supply each player with high-quality equipment. What does this mean for families? It means that once their registration fees are paid there are no other expenses to participate other than a pair of new or used cleats. For the hours of practice and playing time that each player receives during the season, there is NO better value for minor sport in Red Deer than football.

Many have said that there is nothing better than Pee Wee football. It is a great experience for the player and their family. Pee Wee football combines some of the introductory & fun components of the Atom program with some of the competitive aspects of higher levels of football to create a one-of-a-kind football experience. Pee Wee football is open to boys and girls. Athletes eligible to play Pee Wee football must be 11 or 12 years old in this calendar year. Unlike most other sports, football is a game that relies on all 12 players on the field working together at the same time to execute a play. Therefore, practice time is extremely important for the development of each player and for the development of the team. Players and families are expected to display the level of commitment necessary to ensure personal and team success. Football is a wonderful sport that teaches many valuable life lessons. A football player will learn about teamwork, commitment, giving their best effort, perseverance, and many other important qualities. Unlike our society today that values instant gratification, football is a game that values commitment over time to achieve team and personal satisfaction and success.
