How to Register

Predator Rep level athletics focus on competition and excellence. The Predators program begins with the recruitment and selection of the best coaches and players.

If you want to be a part of CIS football, then Predators is where you’ll be scouted by CIS schools. Over the last 7 years, there are currently over 70 Predators playing for university teams.  Find out more about our Alumni Here.

Overview of the Predators' Program:

The Predators Varsity Division is for players aged 11 -19. The mission of rep competition is to enable players to improve their skills and team-member attributes, while advancing through the age and performance levels. Our Predators teams are the best opportunity for elite football players to represent the Twin Cities against top calibre players from other associations across Ontario. In the past three years we have had over 35 1st team WCSSAA all-stars from Predators and 56 overall selections. Being a Predator means access to first rate equipment, the best local and university facilities, trainers and coach busses to away games.

Predator tryouts will take place starting the first week of April.  The first two weekends of tryouts at the JV and Varsity levels are structured mini camps, similar to what is being done at the university and professional levels.  Practices through April and into mid May will be on turf, twice a week.  From mid May through the end of the season, practices are scheduled three times through the week, with film breakdown being part of it.  The Predators OVFL season starts the weekend after the May long weekend and runs through July, with playoffs to follow and the Championship day at the beginning of August.  We recruit and select the best coaches and players - don’t miss your chance to train and play so you can stand out as an athlete in high school and for CIS scouts!

Before trying out for Predators, players are required to register with the Association and pay the full registration fee or sign up for the split payment option. If you are not fully paid or on our split payment option, you will not be fitted for equipment - fittings are held towards the end of March. Please be aware of our equipment procedures and policies.

In 2008 the Ontario Football Conference (OFC) established a Varsity Division to prepare athletes for Junior (CJFL) or Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) competition. For more information about the Ontario Football Conference, please visit www.ofcfootball.com.

In 2013 we placed an additional Junior Varisty team into the Ontario Minor Football League (OMFL) to heighten the level of competition at the Predator level. For more information, please visit their home page.

A second Junior Varsity team is always a possibility each year due to the demand and interest level at this age group.

In 2017 the Peewee Predators will be competiting in the OFC.

 

In 2017 Waterloo Region Minor Football joined the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).  The Waterloo Region Predators (Bantam, JV, SV) will be competing there for the 2017 season.
