The 2020 Portage Pitbull AGM has been set for November 10th, 2020.. All board positions are one year terms and there are multiple positions that are in need of being filled by an energetic person committed to helping youth football grow in Portage la Prairie and the surrounding area. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in having your name put forward prior to the AGM. The meeting is open to the public and social distancing will be followed. Masks are strongly recommended to be worn.
Due to COVID-19 there are some delays in our season that we hope are only temporary. All registration is postponed until June 1, 2020. The MMFA will provide all clubs with an update on league events by May 15. Please continue to monitor or site or ‘like’ us on Facebook to keep up to date on all aspects of our 2020 season.
We have confirmed with the 2019 Grey Cup champions that we will be having our 2020 Portage Pitbull Club Night at the August 14th Bomber game vs the Edmonton Eskimos. All 2020 registered players will receive a ticket to this game as part of their registration fees. Family and friends will be offered a code, once available, to purchase tickets in the Pitbull section to come along to the game and join in the Pitbull fun!
As we wrap up the tackle registration we turn our attention to the registration for the First Down program. It is a non-contact program for children born 2012-2015 to work on fundamental footwork and skills that cross over into a variety of sports. To register go to footballmanitoba.com under the Registration tab.
As the CFL gets into full swing our Cruncher teams will get a chance to see first hand what the Bombers look like this year. They will be attending the July 12th game against the Toronto Argonauts compliments of Old Dutch through their sponsorship with the MMFA. Have fun players, coaches and parents that are attending.
We are excited to announce that we have declare teams in 3 age groups, Peewee, Atom and two teams in Crunchers. Since last year we were only able to declare at the Cruncher age group this shows tremendous growth in football in the Portage area.
We would like to thank Irwin Flooring who covered the Pitbull registration for any new players as without them we would not have some of the great players we have this year and would likely not be declaring teams at each age.
As we move into April we are now only 1 month away from the in-person registration May 2-4 at Stride Place! A reminder to go to mbmfa.com and complete the online portion of the registration PRIOR to attending the May registration to reduce your registration time.
