Football in Squamish

Published on

Football season has hit the corridor, and thanks to GSL Northshore Football, kids in Squamish are getting their equipment on and heading out to the field.  GSL Football runs from September to late November and is open to both boys and girls. The Divisions are age-seperated with two years for each division. The exception is with the Flag Division where the age span is from 6 years to 9 years.  All games are played at Norgate Park in North Vancouver or at Brennan Park in Squamish on Sundays. Flag teams have 12 players per team and use a modified set of rules which prepares the players for later play in the contact division, while the tackle divisions have 18 players per side and use the Football Rules Book published by the National Federation of State High School Associations.
