Update Spring 2021 Football

To Our Hyacks Family,

We are continuing to work towards our spring flag football season. 

At this time we are planning to open registration March 1, 2021 for spring football, waitlist only.  This means you can secure a spot for your child(ren) to participate in the spring football program.  Once we are able to confirm that the program will go ahead you will be invited to complete registration and make a payment.

If we are not able to run the regular spring flag season we are planning to offer an 8 week Football Skills and Drills program.  Details will be available as we continue organizing.

Reminder: all of our programs require volunteer support to run smoothly and to ensure safety protocols at games and practices. 

We will post updates on our website or you can email

Thank you,

Hyacks Football

2021 Flag Football Information

To Our Hyacks Family,

Spring Flag usually starts with: Registration in late February, Practices in mid-March and game play starting late April. 

Spring Flag Football is open to boys and girls ages 6- 16;

  • U8 – born in 2014/2015 (Newly Added Division)
  • U10 – 2012/2013
  • U12 – 2010/2011
  • U14 – 2008/2009
  • U16 – 2006/2007 (Newly Added Division)

Please watch our website and social media for updates regarding when Registration will open.

We are currently working with the VMFL, BCCFA, BCPFA and the City of New Westminstet to deliver a flag football season this spring. Due to the ongoing pandemic and ever changing Provincial Health Orders, we are not sure exactly how this will look at this time.  As always, the health and safety of our players, coaches, managers, volunteers, parents and community remain our priority.  

As soon as I have further details I will pass them along, we are hoping to see registration opening in the next few weeks.

Tentatively, the below are the VMFL Jamboree dates. Depending on any restrictions that may be in place, there may be format changes (i.e. less games per day, less games per field, games split over 2 days by division, etc). When we know what the Provincial Health Orders are at that time, we will provide more details.

  • Week 1 – April 24, 2021
  • Week 2 – May 1, 2021
  • Week 3 – May 8, 2021
  • Week 4 – May 15, 2021
  • Week 5 – May 29, 2021
  • Week 6 – June 5, 2021
  • Provincial Championship – June 11, 12 and 13, 2021 in Kelowna, BC

Please keep in mind that in order for the Spring Season to proceed we will require volunteer support to ensure property safety protocols at practices and jamborees.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

***** Practice START Schedule *******

Hello Hyack Families,

We are officially ready to commence practices.  Please note the start dates below as they are different for each division. 

Junior Bantam

First Practice: Tuesday, July 21, 2020

Location: Mercer Stadium

Time: 6 – 8pm

*JB’s will also practice on Thursday July 23, 2020


First Practice: Thursday, July 23, 2020

Location: Mercer Stadium

Time: 6 – 8pm


First Practice: TBD (likely first week of August)

First Practice: TBD (likely first week of August)

We are working on a rotating practice schedule for all teams which will include taking turns between Mercer Turf and Mercer Upper Grass Field in order for our Club to adhere to the BCPFA Return to Sport – 50 person requirement.  

All players (absolutely no exceptions) will be required to check-in with the Safety Officer on duty the evening of their practice before they can participate - this is required for each and every practice.  Social distancing protocols must be adhered to while checking in and participating in practices..  While we always encourage parent spectators we are asking that you vacate the facility during practice times in order to allow us to maintain the 50 person maximum requirement.  If you do choose to stay please watch from the upper stands and not from the track or standing at the surrounding fenced area.  If you are on the turf you will be asked to leave the area.  Please make sure to pick your player up on time - practice ends at 8pm for most divisions please arrive on time.

Additionally, ALL PLAYERS NO EXCEPTIONS are required to provide the following completed documentation at the start of their first practice for the season:

Form can be found at:

  1. Player Medical Information Form
  2. Parent/Guardian Contract
  3. Participation Agreement Form re: COVID-19
  4. Copy of Birth Certificate
  5. Concussion Form
  6. Photo/Media Release Form

This requirement will be upheld, no exceptions – we will have forms available at check-in on the first day of practice but it is recommended that you bring the completed forms along with a copy of your players birth certificate. 

To confirm the only players practicing this week are our Junior Bantam and PeeWee teams.  Players must bring a personal water bottle with enough water for the duration of practice.  Cleats are to be worn.  A further email will follow within the next day or two with further information regarding the rotating practice scheduled

We look forward to welcoming you all back for another season of Hyack Football.

Go Hyacks!!

Your Royal City Hyacks Football Club Board of Directors


To all Hyack Football parents,


Register here!

There will be smaller roster sizes due to restriction on gathering sizes, so spots will be at a premium. Go to the Registration page to register and ensure your child gets a spot spot.

Important information below for the upcoming season.  

The BCPFA has had its Return to Sport Plan for Football approved and has given all member leagues and clubs the green light to begin preparations and registration for the 2020 season.

We have submitted our Return to Play documents to both the City of New Westminster and BCPFA. In order for us to execute this plan at Mercer Stadium, we will require additional volunteer support, as we all work diligently to find a way for our children to safely play the sport they love in these unique circumstances.

Please familiarize yourself with this document and please see where you might be able to assist. First and foremost, we are looking for safety coordinators for each of our levels to assist in executing this plan. One of the items you will find in the attached plan is the limitation on parent spectators, similar to what other sports are currently doing. So a great way to be able to be around the field and watch your sons/daughters practicing and playing will be to volunteer in this capacity. We need to be certain that we have the infrastructure to deliver football safely and effectively, before we commit to fielding our teams, so please step up and assist, this year more than ever!




Tyke Flag: 2013-2015

Atom Flag: 2011-2012

Pee wee: 2009-2010

Jr Bantam: 2007-2008

Cheer: 2007-2013

Thank you,

RCHFC Executive

If you have any questions, please contact


The Royal City Hyacks Football Club is fully committed to our mission of building social connections and bringing people together to celebrate the sport that we all love.

We are currently navigating the COVID-19 situation collectively with our partner sports clubs and governing bodies. We appreciate your support as we work through this rapidly evolving situation. Our primary concern is for the safety of our players, coaches, parents, volunteers and community. In response to yesterday's announcement by the BC Government to temporarily cancel all events with gatherings larger than 250 people, we will be postponing ALL practices until after Spring Break with a tentative starting date for practices on April 7 2020. 

 Although we would not be at 250, we do have approximately 150+ (players, parents, siblings, coaches and trainers) that will be in close contact with each other.

Please be assured that we are not the only club taking these precautions.  We feel that this is the best course of action for our Club to take at this time. We are working diligently with our partners to confirm details that can be shared. We will continue to actively monitor the situation as we get closer to April. As for right now the spring season is continuing.

We all need to be engaged in responding to this threat and helping to slow the spread of this virus in our communities. We appreciate your ongoing support as we collectively navigate through this time of uncertainty and look forward to a healthy, robust spring, summer and fall season.

Manoli Paterakis,

RCHFC President
