The Calgary Bantam Football Association is a full contact tackle football league for youth’s aged 13 to 15 years.

The league is comprised of 13 teams, 10 of which are in Calgary, and 3 which encompass the surrounding communities. The rural teams are based in Airdrie, Okotoks, and Cochrane . All teams play their games at Shouldice Athletic Park in northwest Calgary.


Each team is sponsored in part by local businesses and community service organizations. In the year 2009, approximately 600 youth will benefit from the sportsmanship, teamwork, exercise and leadership skills that the game of football teaches.

If you would like to explore the opportunity of sponsoring one of our teams please contact the league office or the teams directly.

Equipment and Financing

To maintain a degree of equality amongst the teams as well as to guarantee that each player receives the safest and highest quality equipment possible the Association buys, controls and maintains 600 sets of equipment at an approximate cost of $400 to equip each player.

Financing for the league is provided through receipts from the 50/50 draw at Calgary Stampeders home games which is shared with the Calgary Colts junior football program. Assistance is also provided through team sponsors and game day gate donations at Shouldice Park.

League Play

The regular season starts the last week of August at Shouldice Park and runs until the City Championship during the first week of November. This is followed by provincial playoffs, select team tryouts and our annual all-star trip to the United States

.Games are played on Saturday from 9:30 AM to 3:30PM as well as occasional mid-week evening games.
