To be involved in a Football BC provincial program, you have to attend an upcoming Football BC Combine Series session.
What are some of Football BC's provincial programs? Here's a look at where we're projected to be in 2014.
Senior Bowl - Top Grade 12 graduating Players
This camp features provincial coaches, including representatives from University & Jinior football, who will encourage all players to continue playing football in their post-secondary careers.
Players practice for a week and then compete in an exhibition game to close out camp. The camp is hosted at the BC Lions Training Facility.
FBU Grade 6, 7, & 8 National Championship
The only football tournament of its kind with 64 teams from all over North American competing. Runs from December - January.
Red River Cup - U16
A strong Manitoba tradition that has become the premier football event for this age group in Canada.
Players shortlisted from the Combines are invited to a May Long Weekend mini-camp while the final team competes in early July.
U.S. Army All American Underclassmen Combine
Football BC seeks to provide select underclassmen from our province with the opportunity to compete in the largest and widest-spreading Combine. Our hope is to have one of our players selected to compete in the U.S. Army All American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.
All American Games/FBU International Showcase - U18
An incredible football experience that coincides with the All American Army Bowl week and the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Texas in early January. In years past, American, European and Mexican teams have competed in this showcase.
Players who are interested in this opportunity are first shortlisted from the Combine and invited to a mini-camp over May Long Weekend. Additional selection camps may follow.
Football Canada/USA Football International Bowl - U15 (American age cut-off)
A football competition between select Canadian and American players. Teams will be representing their nation, state and province, respectfully. This tournament takes place in the first week of February in Arlington, Texas.
Remember, attending a Football BC Combine Series session is the first step towards trying out for one of these programs. Make sure you're there!
