NIKE COACH OF THE YEAR CLINICS

The CFA is pleased to be part of the prestigious NIKE Coach of the Year Clinics (COY) offered in the United States for over 40 years.


NIKE COY Clinics came to Canada in 2019.  We've hosted clinics in Niagara Falls Ontario, Montreal Quebec and Calgary Alberta, all featuring top football coaches from the US and Canada teaching their skills.


You'll want to be a part of the clinics on an annual basis as you learn invaluable techniques, philosophy, pointers and strategy from the most respected men in their field.

Thank you for the excellent 2 weeks at CFA football camp. The camp had a great jump start for my second season of football. I can't believe how much I improved over the eight sessions and I will be coming back!  I will be looking forward to seeing you again!

Mark Studer: A Dad's perspective

I wanted to send you a note to tell you how much the CFA has meant to my son and our family. My son is 16 and has Autism.  He has never played sports nor been part of a team. Last year he met the football coach in the summer and was invited to try out for the junior football. We decided he should try and pick up a few football skills before he started football so booked him into the CFA football camp. From the moment that we arrived at camp my son was treated with the upmost respect and care. Your coaches and facilitators work very hard to ensure that respect is the most important aspect of the camp.

The whole camp is extremely inclusive for all players; no matter what their skill level or disability. In addition the quality of coaching is second to none. The former CFL and  NFL coaches that run the camps are amazing. The CFA has created a safe environment for kids of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to learn the game of football and develop as young adults. It has prepared my son to have success on the field as a player and earn the respect of his teammates. The CFA has changed his life in a very positive way and given him the confidence to take on many other challenges. You are doing a lot of good for young people and I can’t thank you enough!
