Registration Now Open

The Edmonton Eskimos and Football Alberta are proud to offer the Eskimos Youth Flag Football League.

Current Eskimos players guest coach alongside players from the University of Alberta Golden Bears football team to teach children entry-level, five-on-five flag football.  No experience is necessary. Boys and girls are welcome.

How it works

  • The novice league is open to boys and girls born in 2008, 2009 or 2010. The atom league is open to boys and girls born in 2006 or 2007.
  •  Players are placed in divisions and teams based on skill level and gender.
  • There are 10 players per team, in four novice divisions and two atom divisions. A waiting list is created once the 350 player capacity is reached.

Practice and Game Days

  • The program runs Sundays from Sept. 11, 2016 to Nov. 6, 2016 inclusive.
  • There is one practice/game each week for an hour.
  • All novice games are played indoors at Commonwealth Stadium Field House. Atom games are outside on the main field at Commonwealth Stadium.



In addition to coaches from the Edmonton Eskimos and Golden Bears, parents are welcome to become assistant coaches or managers. To do so, please indicate your interest when you register your child. All parent coaches and managers will be given a seminar and “how to” book to get started.
