The tackle game is an integral part of the Canadian social and cultural fabric. The game challenges young men and woman to excel physically, mentally and socially. They must subordinate their own personal desires and learn to work as a team, with common objectives and support, and must show maturity and selflessness in that regard. Courage and leadership also are developed in young ball players. Such players inevitably take great pride in their football accomplishments and the related values, which provide them strength of character in these challenging times as they seek the proper path in life.
There are two tackle football clubs that operate under the SCCFA. The Midget Colts, charter members of the Calgary and Area Midget Football Association (CAMFA), and the Bantam Colts, long standing members of the Calgary Bantam Football Association (CBFA). We also work and support the PeeWee Colts, part of the Calgary Peewee Football Association (CPFA) and the Atom Colts. Together, all four clubs provide a positive football experience for over 200 young people in southeast Calgary, ranging in ages from 7 to 17.
The Colts Spirit
To provide positive, wholesome and challenging football based experiences for young men and women in the Southeast neighbourhoods of Calgary. The South Calgary Colts specifically seek to ensure that the players experience selflessness, dedication, inspiration and the pursuit of excellence through physical and intellectual challenges, all within an atmosphere of sportsmanship, and most of all, fun.
We remain true to our belief that there is no substitute for “Commitment, Discipline and Character” and our priorities remain “Family, School and Football”.
