Throughout the 2017 season and onwards, TBMFA will be collecting donations towards our "Declan Lozinski Fund". Last year during the off-season, we lost one of our TBMFA alumni, Declan Lozinski. Declan was a proud and passionate football player who loved the game. Football was a family affair for the entire Lozinski family. His brother and cousins all played minor football, his uncle was a coach, grandfather was an announcer in the booth, and his mom and aunt were team managers. Declan unfortunately passed in December 2016 and is sadly missed. The goal of the memorial fund is to honour Declan and his family, and help to support others to play football, the sport he loved so much. In addition to these fundraising efforts, there will also be a new "Declan Lozinski Award" presented to a graduating Bantam player at our annual banquet. Further details will be revealed upon presentation.

This year, we will begin our fundraising drive by selling off old team/game jerseys at all games beginning September 23 and onwards. Our Kick/Pass/Punt BBQ will also help raise funds. 

Thanks TBMFA Family for your support of our sport, our league, and Declan's memory!


Our 2017 Game Schedule has been posted to the Schedule Page.


Our 2017 Kick/Pass/Punt competition for enrolled players is on Sunday, October 1st at James Street Field at 11:00am. The compeition allows each of our players to attempt to kick, pass, and punt the football as far as possible and there are prizes for our winners! There will be a BBQ after the event, and donations will be collected for our "Declan Lozinski Fund!"
