Welcome to SAMFA 2018!

Welcome to the exciting 2018 SAMFA Football Season!

SAMFA is looking forward to seeing all the new and returning players, that make this program so successful.

Our goal in this upcoming 2018 season is to provide our young athletes with a safe and healthy football environment, to learn, develop their football skills and become quality football players.

The SAMFA coaching staff, will ensure our athletes are taught the game correctly, teach them work ethic, accountability and what it means to be part of a team. They will grow from our wins and learn from our losses.

SAMFA is very fortunate to have some of the best coaching, board members, volunteers and parental support that keeps this program thriving.

Our partnership with the City of St.Albert and our local High Schools (St. Albert Catholic High, Bellerose, Paul Kane), allows us to provide our athletes with the best fields, equipment and coaching support which truly is an asset to this program.

From Novice up to Bantam, our “One Football Family" will show the athletes that it is something special to be part of the SAMFA family and to represent the football community on and off the field.

We encourage everyone to get involved and be a part of our SAMFA family.

All the best in this upcoming 2018 football season.

Derek Vanderheide
President, SAMFA Football.
