Langley, BC (June 28, 2017) – Football Canada’s women’s national team will go for gold on June 30 at 7:30 p.m. PT at the 2017 IFAF Women’s World Championship after defeating Great Britain 35-0 on June 27 at McLeod Stadium in Langley, British Columbia.
Canada handed Great Britain their first-ever tournament loss after Great Britain previously defeated two-time defending bronze medalist, Finland, on June 24 in their women’s worlds debut.
The 2017 gold medal game is a rematch of the 2010 and 2013 finals. Canada will look to avenge a pair of gold medal game losses on home soil.
The host nation will be in for a tough task as the US has yet to lose a game at the IFAF Women’s World Championship. So far in Langley, the US defense has yet to allow a single point scored against them at the 2017 tournament.
Wolfville, Nova Scotia will host eight provincial teams competing at Acadia University’s Raymond Field for the under-18 tackle football national championship, the Football Canada Cup, from July 8-14, 2017

|Ottawa (November 2, 2016) – The search for the inaugural Football Canada Coach of the Year is now underway. Up for grabs are national U14 and U18 Community Football Coach Awards.
These awards help recognize the positive impact of active community, club, and high school coaches from across Canada who dedicate themselves to the development of youth both on and off the field.
“Coaches volunteer their time so that participants across the country can enjoy the great game of football,” said Shannon Donovan, Executive Director of Football Canada.
“The awards unveiled today help recognize deserving coaches for their contributions. They are not awarded for wins and losses, but rather recognition of the positive impact that coaches have on their athletes and their community.”
Nominators are asked to provide a submission (video or written) recognizing the positive impact the volunteer coach has on young players. Nominators are asked to consider how the coach teaches respect, safety, motivation, leadership and appreciation for the game of football when drafting their nominations.
