"pain is temporary...pride is forever"

Welcome

The Sylvan Lake Tigers atom football team was established in 2010 and plays in a non-competitive, fair play league. It is a full contact tackle football league, but the games are played jamboree style with modified rules, 9 players each side, and the coaches are on the field at all times. It is volunteer driven and all parents are encouraged to help out either on or off the field, regardless of their experience with the sport. The Atom team is ground zero for football in Sylvan Lake and although it is aimed at players who are 9-10 years old, an 8 year old is also eligible to play. It is impressive to see the young, energetic players that Sylvan Lake has been producing and to watch them advance to the older more competitive teams. They are eager to learn, want to play and are extremely coachable. Football at this age is very exciting, not only for the players, but for the coaches and parents too! The players experience an extreme learning curve that is fun to be a part of, especially at a player's "first game". These players get as much out of practice as they do out of the games. In just a few months, they learn to safely participate full contact and they grow from children into young athletes. Their skill development is based on the same philosophy and hard work as all of the other teams in Sylvan Lake Minor Football program. While the emphasis of this level of football is on having fun and the learning of fundamental skills, you will be surprised at how competitive the game days can actually be.

Coach's Message:

Welcome to another exciting season of TIGERS football! 2017 is gonna be another great year!

Firstly, I would like to Thank all of you parents for your dedication and commitment to the team. It's a lot of time out of a person's week to ensure your athlete is at practice on time and ready for game day on those Saturday mornings. I would also like to Thank Coach Tony Sooley and Kelly Johnson for coaching and managing again with us this season! They both play a huge role in making this team a success. Cheers to you guys! 

Joining us this season is Coach Steve Scanland and Coach Chris King. Really looking forward to having their expertise out there on the field! Thank You Steve and Chris for coming onboard!

A big Thank You is in order to departing coaches Zane Ptolemy and Frederick Schuttenbeld for their comitment to the team over the past 2 seasons. We definitley had great times coaching together and alot of laughs! Best of luck moving forward!

I am extremely excited for the upcoming season! After the last 2 seasons as head coach of the Tigers, I have realized how much fun it is coaching the little guys. Watching their skill levels develop is amazing.
We have had another great turnout for this season and I am very pleased at how well the Atom program has garnered so much interest in Sylvan Lake. It all begins at this level! The roster this season also looks great! We are looking forward to some veteran leadership and definitely have some skill on both sides of the ball. 
This season will again see us playing teams from all over Central Alberta. We are hosting a home game again this year on Saturday, September 30 at HJ Cody High School. This is our Sylvan Lake Football day in celebration of 20 years of football in Sylvan Lake. We will be joining all of the other teams from SL in playing a home game, ours being against Rocky and starting at 9:45am. It will be exciting with the addition of the new press box at the field!

Please remember that this team and league only function with volunteers so if any of you parents have some spare time, we can always use help. Whether it be doing up helmets, putting away equipment at the end of practice, or helping out at our home game in September, this help is very much needed and appreciated. 

Thank you all for introducing your kids to the game of football. Some of my best memories were made playing this game! Please call me at 403-357-3360 if you have any questions or concerns. I am excited to see you all on the field! GO TIGERS!!


Coach Jeremy
