U16 Regional Challenges

Our regional under-16 football tournament, with Western and Eastern provincial teams competing against each other for the championship.

The under-16 East and West Regional Challenges help introduce players and coaches to tournament-style competition as they test their skills against neighbouring provinces. The events help athletes develop as they work towards the under-18 national tackle football championship, the Football Canada Cup, as well as national team competition.
