Handsworth Football Update

Grade 8 Football Starts in April!

Hello Royals! A call-out to Grade 8 students who are interested in playing football for the Handsworth Royals – training camp starts in April!  The football team has a long tradition at Handsworth and is notable for its inclusiveness – everyone is welcome to join and there are never player cuts.    You needn’t have played community football to start playing in Grade 8 and our coaches will take you through all the steps to enjoy this great sport safely and successfully.  We provide most of the equipment to play (helmets, pads, etc.) so it is easy to get into the game!  Our equipment is top rated for safety, well-maintained and custom fitted to each player to provide the best playing experience possible.

Football is widely considered “the ultimate team sport” as all eleven players are reliant on each other to complete each play successfully.  With this dependency, the Handsworth football program generates a close team environment with player relationships built for a lifetime through their five years in the program.  Players also find themselves dedicated to fitness and healthy living lifestyles through their training experiences.  Some Senior players are usually successful each year at attaining post-secondary playing opportunities across Canada and in the U.S. if they so choose.  Will you be next?

Questions about the football program can be directed to Mr. Burtt during the day or via e-mail to the team representatives – see the football page on the school website for contacts.

We hope to see you on the field in April!  Go Blue!


Strachan Hartley Run

Thanks to our Handsworth Royals Football Team for their volunteer support for the Strachan Hartley Run on Sunday, October 20, 2019. Since 2007,  The Strachan Hartley Community Run has been organized 100% by volunteers with all the proceeds going to the Streetfront Program which helps youth achieve their full potential through sports and education. This year's run raised almost $44,000 for youth at risk. https://www.shlf.ca/the-run/.
