About the Team
The Wolverines Novice Program is for our youngest players who have an interest in learning football.
It is a program for beginners. Here are some specific details about the Novice Program.
- The Novice Program is open for boys and girls aged 6, 7 & 8 that calendar year.
- Novice teams play Flag Football - No contact
- Novice teams have 5 players. Each season we'll have multiple Novice Teams based on the number of registrations, so everyone gets plenty of time on the field to practice their skills.
- Novice Teams use the Wilson K2 Ball size. This is the same ball used at the youngest organized competitive level of the game, ideal for ages 6-9.
- Game play is setup on a quarter of the football field.
- Games are scheduled at locations in Edmonton and surrounding communities (Sherwood Park, St Albert, Ft Sask etc.)
One weekend game and one practice per week (TBD each season) and will remain that night throughout the season.
Novice Program begins mid August, with league games starting after the Labour Day weekend and wraps up mid October.
