Fremont Football League Announces New Division

by Vicki Gruver

On Feb. 25 the Fremont Football League announced the formation of the Continental Division for football players ages seven, eight and nine. The formation of this division means that the younger players will have a division of their own. This division will participate in the 2005 season and will join the National Division (ages 10, 11, 12) and the American Division (ages 13, 14).

"The Continental Division is already generating tremendous interest," said Clyde English FFL president. "The board members are receiving inquiries from the community and the CAN-PASS telephone line (510) 226-7277, is receiving messages on a daily basis."

In 2004 the league was filled to capacity. The addition of the Continental Division will open the FFL to a larger section of the youth of the Tri-City area and will help distribute players within the National and American divisions.

The Continental Division, like the National and American divisions, will play full-contact tackle football. "One of the great things about the FFL," said Casey Kester, head coach of the National Division 49ers, "Is that we play all of our games at the Irvington Community Center, we don't have to travel to attain a high level of competition." The league plans to add four teams - the Chiefs, Saints, Colts and Giants - in the upcoming 2005 season.

The League is expanding and is always looking for people who are interested in coaching football.
