Competition

The season starts in early September and finishes at the beginning of November. The Bigside team plays in Division I of the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA), a league made up of independent schools from across Ontario. The Bigside (Varsity) league currently has an 8-10 game schedule including playoffs. We supplement the league schedule with exhibition games as well as one or two tournaments including the Canadian Accredited Independent School (CAIS) National Tournament that is hosted annually at various schools across the country. The Littleside (Junior Varsity) team plays 4-6 league games, plus playoffs and 2-4 exhibition games.
