Beefeaters prepping for big season

2015 London Beefeaters

The London Beefeaters kick off another exciting season beginning this August. As a participant in the Ontario Football Conference, a division of the Canadian Junior Football League, the Beefeaters are a non-profit organization sponsoring junior football in London and surrounding area for players aged 18-23.

Main training camp will open on Saturday, August 6 at noon and continue until Friday, August 19. Times and location are yet to be determined. Please continue to check our website (www.londonbeefeaters.org) for further updates or contact Coach John Vouvalidis (jvouvalidis5611@rogers.com).

Joining Coach Vouvalidis this season will be Offensive Coordinator – Jordan Haylor, Defensive Coordinator – Gary Haldenby, Offensive Line Coach – Eric Armitage, Associate Offensive Line Coach – Greg Willson, Running Backs Coach – Darren Isaac, and Defensive Backs Coach – Luke Thomas. Watch our website for further coaching announcements.

In order to be eligible to practice, as well as receive equipment, players must first register with Football Canada via the Ontario Football Alliance. A player needs to also register with the CJFL, complete the 2016 version of the CJFL CCES drug education program, and if you’re a new player, you must also complete the information form on our website. If you have any questions concerning your player registration, please contact Jim Stevenson at jstevenson@execulink.com.

Beginning this season, the Beefeaters have entered into an integral relationship to develop our football program together with the support of the Western Mustangs football program and coaches. This collaboration will provide a significant mutual benefit in terms of player development and on-field success for both the Beefeaters and the Mustangs.
