2017 Team Alberta U16 & Junior Bowl

Final Roster Announced

Team South 27 – Team North 8

The concept of the Bantam Bowl is to reward and showcase the best graduating Grade 9 players in the province in an all-star format.  The role we at Football Alberta play is to run the event in a manner in which all the coaches have to do is coach and all the players have to do is play.  The result has been an extremely enjoyable, once in a lifetime memory for player and coach alike.  With the continued development of the Bantam Bowl and the Alberta Summer Games Tournament in off-setting years, we’re hoping to further increase the stature of bantam football province-wide.

Bantam Bowl South Camp – April 7 – 9 – South Team
