Manitoba Minor Football Association
The Manitoba Minor Football Association (MMFA) is a volunteer organization that is the governing body for youth tackle football, ages 7 to 14, in the city of Winnipeg and in the surrounding rural areas.
Children play football because it is fun, challenging and exciting. Most kids love being part of a team and playing with their friends. Football teaches cooperation and team work, helps develop positive social skills and teaches respect for others. It helps build self-confidence, a positive self-image and self-worth. It enables a child to improve upon and develop a broad range of motor skills like throwing, catching, running, kicking, balance, agility and coordination. Because a large variety of skills and physical abilities are required on a football team, there is a position for every child to play.
The MMFA features over 60 teams that are broken up into 4 age groups;
***Please Note: Age is determined as of December 31 of the calendar year of the season***
HOW SAFE IS TACKLE FOOTBALL?
Football is a contact sport and injuries do occur, however, the risk of injury is no greater than in any other contact sport. The safety and well being of every child is the number one concern of all the members of the MMFA. All of our members go to great lengths to ensure that our players have properly fitted and maintained equipment as well as ensuring we provide the most responsible, knowledgeable and certified coaches, officials and trainers available.
DO I NEED TO BUY EQUIPMENT FOR MY CHILD?
Except for personal items such as undergarments and footwear, our clubs supply all the equipment necessary for your child to play football, including helmet, mouth-guard, pads, game uniforms and practice pants. Some clubs sell practice jerseys and other apparel for a small fee. Please check with your home club for availability.
WHERE AND WHEN CAN I REGISTER?
Yearly registration will take place at the various MMFA Football Clubs typically the first Thursday, Friday and Saturday of May. Check with your home club for the exact dates and times that they take registrations.
