September 16, 2013, Edmonton, AB (ISN) – The Edmonton Eskimo’s Novice Flag Football league had their first team practise session Sunday September 15, 2013 at Commonwealth Stadium Recreation Centre where they will be playing their entire season as well.

The league consists of 3 divisions of 4 teams each plus a division from outlying areas. The teams each wear the colors of one of the 8 CFL teams. The division are named for former Edmonton Eskimo Greats Jackie Parker, Tom Wilkinson and Warren Moon. These 150 plus children (girls and boys) are coached by University of Alberta Golden Bears. 4 times throughout the season members of the Edmonton Eskimos will also be on hand to lend and hand and give the players some helpful advice. This is the league’s second year and has grown immensely that there is a waiting list of children ages 6-8 waiting to play as there is not enough space available for all that want to play.

Jack Sponarksi a first year U of A student and Golden Bear studying arts mother Sheryl Smith was out watching her son coach says she is so happy that the Golden Bears coaches have the boys out coaching and assisting the young players by being positive role models for the younger children.
