Falcons Football Club

All Manitoba Minor Football Association (MMFA) age divisions (Crunchers, Atoms, Peewees, and Bantams) utilize a strict participation policy (which should not be confused with "fair play"). This participation policy ensures that each player is on the field at least every other offensive or defensive series. Most players take turns sitting out every other series based on the particular roster size (how many players are on their team). While each player may not be on the field for an equal number of plays in any given game, this policy should result in every player having the same opportunity to be on the field over the course of the entire season.

CRUNCHERS (U10)

The Cruncher Division focuses on fundamental skills development in a safe and fun environment.

This division is non-competitive. The Cruncher division does not track scoring for wins and losses but still provides the younger players with an authentic football experience. The Cruncher division aims to provide players with fun and fulfilling practices and games with an emphasis on developing the skill sets that are necessary for the older age groups and football as a whole. There are 6 players from each team on the field at a time, along with one coach from each team who are allowed to provide instruction between plays and help players set up. The Crunchers play on a reduced field size. This division follows some special developmental rules that help promote athlete development.
