The U16 Football Program serves as an entry point to high performance sport for athletes. The U16 team participates in several weekend training camps and exhibition games against Nova Scotia before competing at the Football Canada Eastern Challenge and Atlantic Bowl. Both teams will participate against Eastern Canadian provincial teams in either a 12 a side or 6 a side game format.
Each year Football NB goes through an extensive selection process and identifies the elite athletes in the province.
Players must be 14 or 15 on or before December 31st of the calendar year they will be competing in.
