Youth Football presented by BellMTS

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Bell are committed to making youth tackle football more accessible by supporting families who may require financial assistance. All thirteen clubs affiliated with the Manitoba Minor Football Association (MMFA) will benefit from a grant program funded by Bell to cover registration fees associated with their tackle football program.

Youth must be between the ages of 8-16 years old and must be enrolled in school.

Youth Football Coach of the Week

The Blue Bombers want you to join us in honouring youth football coaches (tackle) through our new Youth Football Coach of the Week Program. The goal of this program is to give youth football coaches the recognition they deserve while promoting the development of youth football throughout the province.
The Blue Bombers will select ten (10) coaches during the 2022 football season. Each winning coach will receive a Bombers gift pack, a commemorative game ball, and be honoured during a Bombers regular season home game. All youth football coaches in Manitoba are eligible regardless of their team size, league, or division. Coaches or their immediate family members are not eligible to nominate themselves.

Parents Coaches Clinic

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are pleased to announce the launch of a program aimed at educating football moms and dads with information on player safety. In the spring of 2022, the Bombers will host free clinics to provide helpful information to parents who have children either considering or currently playing tackle football.
