Beckwith Irish Minor Football is a developmental full contact football league. The league is open to boys and girls from Lanark County and surrounding areas who were born in 2011 or earlier. Teams are divided into divisions based on years of birth. The season runs from April to June, as part of the spring Rideau Youth Football League (RYFL). We will play a mix of Canadian/US tackle rules football in games against teams from Brockville, Smiths Falls, & Kemptville. We are committed to providing a fun, healthy environment based on mutual respect amongst players, and between players and coaches. The size of the field, the length of the game and the number of players on the field are adjusted for Tyke and Mosquito; PW and Bantam play on a full field with 12 on 12 players. The size of football used is adjusted for each level.
Season dates: The season is expected to start the first week of April (weather permitting) and to end by the end of June. Practices will be held 2 evenings a week; Mon. and Wed. for the younger kids in Tyke and Mosquito, and Tues and Thurs for Pee-Wee and Bantam. All practices will be held outdoors at Beckwith Park from 6:00 to 8:00 pm
