How long is the season?

Our season basically lasts 4 months, March until the end of June. We begin our season with some off-season workouts during March, April and early May. Once fields open up in mid-May we start official practice and preparation for our regular season games. Games begin after the long weekend in May and run until late June. We are all finished before school is out.

How often do you play/ practice?

During our off-season sessions we are trying to keep commitment to approximately 1½ hours per week until we are allowed on the fields approximately the 2nd week of May. From that point onwards you can expect to have 3-4 sessions per week at 1 ½ to 2 hours per session, this will include practices and games.

How many games are there and when are they played?

Games begin after May long weekend and run until late June. We play eight regular season games and at least two play-off games. Games can be played on any weeknight as well as on a weekend. Primarily we can expect to play Friday evenings…..and Sundays. We may organize some exhibition games per age level, played prior to the May long weekend.

Where are practices held?

We will practice at Stonecrest Elementary School or West Carleton Secondary School

Who do we play against and where?

Wolverines are part of the National Capital Amateur Football Association. Our home games will be played at West Carleton Secondary School. We have teams from Kanata across to Cumberland in our league, so it is safe to expect some cross city travel during the season. We have teams in Orleans, Cumberland, Ottawa, South Nepean and Kanata.

When can we register?

We will offer registration at all our pre-season conditioning sessions.  The website will announce upcoming sessions.

What is your club philosophy?

Our goal is to provide a FUN and SAFE atmosphere for the girls to enjoy and learn the game of touch football. All girls that are selected for the team will see regular and fair playing time.
