About SAMFA


St. Albert Minor Football Association (SAMFA) is a community league and has been a part of the St. Albert area for over 50 years. Our association and the sport of football continues to grow and we look forward to another successful season. The Executive, Coaches and Volunteers are here to provide a positive football experience for your child. We are committed to providing an experience that is safe, that fosters community spirit, promotes physical exercise and most that instils a sense of team work.

SAMFA Mission Statement

 SAMFA’s mission is “To provide boys and girls an opportunity to play football in a fun, fair and safe environment; encouraging development of individual and team skills.” SAMFA institutes a fair play policy and while some other organizations have restrictions on the number of players and teams, we have tried to ensure that all players have an opportunity to be part of the sport of football.

 

SAMFA’s goal is to provide an opportunity to play football in a fun, fair and safe environment; encouraging development of individual and team skills.

SAMFA Philosophy

SAMFA amateur football teams participate in a competitive league as part of the Capital District Minor Football Association, and as members of Football Alberta. We offer programs at the Novice, Atom, Peewee, and Bantam division levels. Our sport philosophy across our divisions is to promote progressive player skill development, increase knowledge of the game of football, support fair play and have fun. Our objectives include instilling athletes with a sense of community, team, commitment, desire and respect.  

Playing on a Team

For the Atom through U19 divisions SAMFA teams often carry between 12-30 players.  All players who practice, play, as the focus is on fun and skill development.

Spring Season Practices and Games

For Atom through Bantam, the pre-season starts in March, with the regular season running until the end of April. Depending on the division and the team’s goals, practices typically occur 1-2 times per week. There is usually 1 game per week, excluding exhibition games. Practices are often held at the Larry Olexiuk Field (Formerly Riel Field), or may be held at school football fields within St. Albert communities. Games may occur at our home field (Larry Olexiuk Field) or at the competitor’s field. Details will be provided by your coach.

Fall Season Practices and Games

For Atom through Bantam, the pre-season starts in August, with the regular season running until the end of October. Depending on the division and the team’s goals, practices typically occur 2-3 times per week. There is usually 1 game per week, excluding exhibition games. Practices are often held at the Larry Olexiuk Field (Formerly Riel Field), or may be held at school football fields within St. Albert communities.
