Spring teams all work hard to get better (don't they?) but a lot of their work is actually getting players out to play & that's where some clubs fall short, communication skills are not the greatest nor is advertising, the parents & league don't understand social media is teens main communication tool, and the league itself does zero to get players to play, which shows not a whole lot of leadership but is the usual 
none of the Minor football leagues from Bantam to Midget train even close to enough players for all the high school teams

Hey CSFA, get the snow clearing plans in place just in case, no waiting a month of the season this time to figure it out while telling the
flunkies that "it can't be done, which was not true

Yes, I would assume they all work hard to get better.... I was really asking which ones had started camp already. Can we have one thread that is positive and not about corruption and focusing on what people are not doing? Lets talk about what is being done and actual football topics for once.

They all started training such as it is indoors, not much else to say until they can get outdoors to play games or jamboree
for that the snow needs to be gone/removed, period

since none of the football leagues put out rosters of who their players are or from what high schools (why not? for what reason?) are it's almost impossible to have any discussion except in really broad generalities until a person can see that team on the field in full game mode
 
the loaded teams with the most Div 1 players will do the best, the teams that have lesser talent will struggle more, the way it will be

there are some decent qb's and qb's who complete @ 1 out of 20 passes in live games, and other qb's from lower divisions who will have to prove they can play this level where game will come at them a lot faster & which is Div 1-ish for top teams and below that for not so good
teams & coaches will find the all of the weak links & the strong players as the season goes on through viewing game film on Hudl, can't hide

interesting, at least one of the football clubs has been not run very well, this happens in other sports too, usually when a small closed clique runs club, board meetings at someone's mom's house etc, functioning by well intended seats of their pants

Of course, The CFSA is not run as a separate society, it is some undocumented offshoot of the CBFA, they are not all all transparent and on and on, but good for this club for making changes.

The League should provide all of the clubs with a blueprint to follow, but doubtful that happens.   

**

As you may be aware, there has been a significant amount of turnover Board in the past 12 months. This has led to unavoidable gaps in addressing some key issues facing our Association. I’m optimistic that our current Board will be able to focus on the priorities of the Association to ensure a positive experience for the player, parents and coaches who participate in Football.

The tenets of our Board are:

1. Transparency – this includes financial stewardship and sharing this information with the members, regular evaluation of our processes and guidelines to gauge outcomes and addressing issues in a timely and thorough manner

2. Communication – The Board is committed to improving communication at the team level and the board. This will involve a review of our website so that it is a more appropriate means of communication

3. Collaboration – this includes building positive relationships with other associations and boards involved in minor football in Calgary to improve the football experience for everyone

The Board is currently working on the following:

1. AGM – we are finalizing the minutes from the last AGM and will submit the required annual returns as required by the Societies’ Act

2. Pee Wee Head Coach – The notice regarding the Pee Wee Head Coach vacancy will be going out in the next week.

3. Finances – we are reviewing the financial records and our goal is to provide a draft budget in the next 2 – 3 months. Once this is prepared, it will be circulated to the membership for review and comment

4. Fields – we will be working on identifying practice fields that can be used by our teams throughout the year. This may be a combination of City playfields and community spaces.

5. Equipment and Supplies – in the next few months, we will complete an inventory of our equipment and supplies. We will use this information to work with the teams to provide the items necessary for safe play.

6. Recruitment – we are working on establishing a small working group of members that can develop and implement a strategic plan to improve the number of players in all our programs

7. Camps – we will be working with the coaches to identify the camps that will be offered this year

8. Registration – we will be working to update the online registration process to improve the process

These are all important steps to improving the organization and operation of the BFA.

In an effort to increase transparency and communication, future Board Meetings will be open to all members.

Any confidential discussion (i.e. complaints, etc.) will be scheduled at the beginning of the meeting and members will not attend this portion of the meeting.

What do you mean? Because of the sheer amount of recruitment that happens most Bantam all stars are going to 3 schools. If players actually went to their designated schools we would have a much more competitive league. Some players slide through the cracks and play at Div 2/3, those great players typically get scholarships.

No Scouts really don't care about which school you went too, good talent is good talent, its why some tier 4 players have been recruited.

The whole football community is such a cancer that some div 1 coaches get actively upset when they see non div 1 players get scholarships because it ruins their spiel. Imagine being such a POS human.

Well, most players won't stick with it anyway but University coaches DON'T watch all divisions the same amount, that is not true. This has been addressed before. Yes, some Div 2 players get an offer but far less than Div 1.
in 2018 the top teams in Spring football were

Cowboys & Hilltoppers in North 

Colts & Wildcats in South

and the vast majority of the best players on all those teams were Division 1 players. There were some other good players from D2, but the large majority were from D1. One team had 8 "All-Stars" so to speak & 7 of them were from Div 1. Same with other teams.
In the fall some D1 teams do field some not very good players because they have to and it is some kid who never played before, not everyone in Div 1 is a good player but if you want to be seen, that is a good place.

USports coaches from out of Province also watched Calgary Spring/Midget football, so there is that too.

your argument actually fell apart on its own, the more successful Spring league teams share almost all of their territory with the more successful Div 1 high schools. which means that all those "recruited" kids you keep referring to already live in their designated school area. the two most successful high schools, Francis and ND, are also affiliated with the three most successful north teams: Hilltoppers (city champs), Cowboys (city finalists), and Mavericks (Division 2 champs). Cowboys have also been to 4 straight div 1 championships. in the same time frame, Francis, their main feeder high school, went to 4 straight provincial championships. before that? Hilltoppers were the power of the spring league and ND won 5 tier 1/2 provincial championships and 5 city championships. The lone year one of the three north teams didn't make the finals, The Colts and the Bobcats were in the finals, it was also the year BOB won the city championship. Mavericks also had two years of city finals appearances in the middle of it all.

This isn't a coincidence, Spring football is a massive indicator of how the following high school football league will go.

The whole football community is such a cancer that some div 1 coaches get actively upset when they see non div 1 players get scholarships because it ruins their spiel. Imagine being such a POS human.

this is completely false. show me one example anywhere where any coach got "actively upset" that a non-div 1 player got a scholarship. imagine making up crap to fit your narrative.

the Bulldogs and Stampeders were the City Finalists in Bantam, so...
you are just pointing out how incompetent the youth leagues are in revising Club boundaries based on rising population, they just sit there
 
take a look at the map, some of the areas for Clubs are nowhere near these high schools
forty years of lying does not lie
the COWBOYS HAD TWO BANTAM TEAMS TO DRAW FROM GENIUS
YOU GET ZERO CREDIT FOR RECRUITING KIDS FROM 3 BANTAM TEAMS INTO 1 HIGH SCHOOL

the coach was recorded on CBC Radio and TV saying just that...

so anyway, the more good division 1 players a team has the better off they are going to be in Spring, this is not even a point of dispute
have some fun because there's no money at the end of this trail in USports or CFL (that $700,000 American QB from Texas who is not worth it will get your money)
and no one from here is going to NCAA D1 where there is real scholarship money

how is it recruiting if the two bantam programs feed into the high school?

here is another map to go look at, the Calgary Catholic school district. if you go to schools, select high schools you will notice that there are only three Catholic school that resides north of 16th avenue. Bishop McNally, Notre Dame, and St Francis. Mcnalley is the only one in the northeast, Notre Dame is in the center-north and Francis is the only Catholic school west of center street and north of the river. That is a massive territory draw. the three spring league teams? Hilltoppers, Cowboys, and Mavericks.

I don't know why you're ignoring the evidence I presented that there is a clear correlation between the successful teams in the Spring league and the successful Div 1 teams in the following fall season. The lone exception was the Wildcats beating the Mavericks in the finals. Even in 2014 when the Airdrie Raiders loss in the finals to the Mavericks, George Mac high school beat Cochrane and won the Rocky view championship for the first time in forever and haven't won since. Even Aberhart, Robert Thirsk and Churchill/Bowness have been seeing div 2 success as of late, so clearly not all the talent in the northwest is just going to Francis and Notre Dame. Football in the north is just strong across the board.

side note: typing in all caps makes it hard for anyone to take you seriously.

Again, let's look at the facts. In the High school level, a northern school won the Division one or division 2 championship 8 of the last ten time in the last 5 years. (9 if you include Bishop Mcnally) this year, the city champion was Notre Dame and the Provincial champion was Francis, meanwhile, the Div 2 championship was Aberhart beating Churchill/Bowness. Also in Spring football, a north team won the div one cities the last three years in a row and last year the top 3 teams were Hilltoppers, Cowboys, and Mavericks.

If you want to present evidence to the contrary, go ahead. But calling me delusional in all caps isn't a very good argument to make.

Right now the football has been better in the North-NorthWest part of the City. This isn't an insult, I'm just stating that the stronger teams and the championships as of late has been going to the Northern football teams at a very high percentage. I mean, an 80-90% div1/2 championship rate is an insane percentage and it shows that football has been clearly stronger in the northern part of Calgary

it's a function of the set up and the recruiting involved obfuscator, look at a map of the city and see where the clubs and high schools are situated,
what a crock, the colts were 4-1 last year and the loss was the subs playing most of it to get ppl involved, you left that out
some high school get bits and pieces of 1 or 2 bantam teams in established areas, not brand new heavily populated areas where there are just going to be more players because of the mass of population moving in - this is where the Football Boards fail badly

Yea there's no corruption, its just a complete coincidence that the territory for the cowboys JUST SO HAPPENS to be very similar to the Francis territory.

I'm sure thats not on purpose for selfish reasons, I'm sure it just kinda ended that way when territories were being drawn.

And what about the success of the Mavericks, and Hilltoppers. the Success of Notre Dame, Aberhart, Thirsk, Churchill/Bowness?

They were 4-1 only playing south teams, or do you not know how Spring football scheduling and divisions work? They played one north team and lost by 3 touchdowns. you left that out.

What do you suggest the board do to balance the power between north and south? make kids who live in royal oak play for the Bulldogs? I completely agree that the Cowboy's zone is too big and it should be redrawn, but the only thing that is going to happen is the Mavericks are going to get better and the Wildcats are going to get better, The Mavericks already won div 2, and the Wildcats were second in the south, not exactly balancing the scales of power.

Yea there's no corruption, its just a complete coincidence that the territory for the cowboys JUST SO HAPPENS to be very similar to the Francis territory.

I'm sure thats not on purpose for selfish reasons, I'm sure it just kinda ended that way when territories were being drawn.

This is also inaccurate, The Mavericks territory is split up evenly with Francis and Notre Dame, also kids from Aberhart, Thirsk, and Churchill/Bowness play for the Cowboys.
