Football Kicks Off In Wetaskiwin

 

 
Saturday September 8, 2012 was Football Day in Wetaskiwin. The 10th Anniversary of the Wetaskiwin and District Amateur Football Association (WDAFA) kicked off their season with a jamboree of four football games. The day started at 10am with the Atom (ages 8 to 10) Wolverines. At 12:30pm the Bantam (ages11 & 12) Warriors squad took to the field. At 3:30pm the Peewee (ages 13 to 15) Wildcats kicked off their season. The day ended with an Alumni game with 40 “old-timers” suiting up at 7pm. All three teams played their counterparts from Camrose. 
Mayor Bill Elliot was also in attendance and congratulated the WDAFA for the time and dedication by the many volunteers that have been so successful over the past ten years. The Mayor also thanked the parents, coaches, managers, trainers, referees and the WDAFA executive for their continued commitment and enthusiasm and hoped the players will play well, display sportsmanship, and enjoy the season.
The WDAFA used the day to host a Food Bank Drive and encouraged spectators to contribute. The Edmonton International Raceway brought a number of their cars and drivers as well as their mascot, which was a big hit among the young at heart. His D- fence cheer was well received by the fans and teams. The Raceway also provided free tickets to the crowd for the September 15th or the 22nd events at the Raceway.
Wetaskiwin and District Amateur Football Association (WDAFA) provide a quality minor football program for children and youth in the Wetaskiwin county area. The league will run this fall, at the Wetaskiwin Lions Track & Field Facility named Norm Brown Field. The Bantam Warriors and Peewee Wildcats teams will be playing in the Central Football League while the Atom Wolverines will compete in the Capital District Minor Football League.
The Wetaskiwin Comp Sabres Football Team kicked off their season on Thursday with a hard fought lost against Lindsay Thurber of Red Deer.
