Cloverdale minor football took gold in Chilliwack a few weekends ago.

All three teams came home with gold medals after winning all of their games at the annual Chilli Bowl Summer Soccer Tournament in Chilliwack August 21-22 at Townsend Park.

“The teams have done really well, going undefeated, winning gold medals in their respective divisions,” said Yeera Sami, president of the Cloverdale Community Football Association. “They built on the previous weekend and gave a strong performance, improving as the games progressed. Confidence and comfort level were the key factors.

Sami said he was proud of the teams and their coaches.

“We are now looking forward to a very successful season. “

This regular season begins in September as league play begins for all teams and continues through December.

Sami said the CCFA has teams competing in three different leagues: an internal flag league, the Valley Community Football League (VCFL) and the Vancouver Mainland Football League (VMFL).

The CCFA internal flag program is aimed at children ages 5-7. There is a nine-man contact team for 8-9 year olds, the Lions, who participate in the VCFL. The CCFA also has a team of nine players, the Tigers, also for 8 and 9 years old, who play in the VMFL.

Cloverdale also competes in the VMFL in 12-player tackle leagues in Peewee (10-11), Jr. Bantam (12-13), Bantam (14-15) and Midget (16-18).

Sami said Cloverdale is still looking for players for its internal flag football league for kids ages 5-7 and for its Atom Division flag football team (for ages 8-9).

“Registrations are still open. “
