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.  The fee for Novice and Atom is $150, flags and jerseys are provided. Only equipment to bring is a good pair of runners.

How it works

  • The novice league is open to boys and girls born in 2009, 2010 or 2011. The atom league is open to boys and girls born in 2007 or 2008.
  • Players will be broken up into teams and divisions based on skill level.
  • 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. 10 to Nov. 5 inclusive.
  • There is one practice/game each week for 60 minutes.
  • All Novice games played indoors at Commonwealth Stadium Community Fieldhouse with Atom games scheduled for play outside on The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium.



  • The University of Alberta Golden Bear Football Team will be providing coaches for the Novice and Atom teams, with guest coaching appearances from the Edmonton Eskimos.  Parents are more than welcome to indicate their willingness to assist as an Assistant Coach or Manager via the registration process.
  • All Coaches/Assistants will be given a seminar and “how to” book to assist them in getting into the Flag game.
