It is with great excitement that the Charleswood Broncos Board of Directors announce that the PREMIER FOOTBALL FACTORY will be holding training sessions for all registered players of the Charleswood Broncos. Please click here for all the details.
Equipment fitting will take place on May 21st and May 23, 2013 at the Charleswood Broncos Clubhouse.
To make fitting go a little quicker, the equipment form can be downloaded from the left side and filled out PRIOR to coming to the clubhouse. If you could take a few minutes to fill out the form, it will help our coaches get the players fitted and the process move a little faster.
This year, we are splitting the teams into two dates. The teams and fittings will be as follows:
May 21, 2013 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. - Terminator and Atom Players
Players with last names starting with A-L - 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

Player with last names starting with M-Z - 7:15 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
We recognize that if you have more than one player per family these times may not work for you. We will do our best to accommodate all families.
This year, because of concerns over hygiene, the Broncos will not be supplying girdles for the players. We will be selling our existing stock of girdles on a first come first serve basis for $10.00. This includes the girdle, hip and tail pads.
New girdles will also be available for sale at our apparel shop and they will cost between $25 - $50 depending on girdle.

Fees can be paid by cheque (i.e. bring three cheques) or VISA. *Kidsport is a source of funding for those families who qualify; to determine if you qualify, and to download an application form visit http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/index.php?page=manitoba_how_to_apply.

If you are planning to apply to Kidsport, please complete your forms in advance of registration.
How much does it cost? The fees for the 2013 season is $340.00 for registration. Because full playing equipment and uniforms are provided, ALL PLAYERS must provide a deposit in the form of a cheque (also referred to as equipment bond) which will not be cashed if all equipment/uniform is returned in good condition. The equipment bond for 2013 is $200.00 and the cheque must be post-dated for December 1, 2013. A volunteer bond in the amount of $200.00 and dated for September 30, 2013 must be provided by EACH FAMILY. This cheque will not be cashed if the expected volunteer hours (described elsewhere) for each family are completed. Families who do not wish to volunteer have the option of paying the $200.00.
