HYACK FOOTBALL IN THE ELEMENTARY & MIDDLE SCHOOLS
 
On February 28th members of the NWSS Football program took park in Anti-Bullying Day activities with presentations in four elementary schools. The presentations were focused on cyber-bullying and were well received by the young students and staff alike.
 
In April, we will begin our week-long PE classes football units at every elementary and middle school in the city. From there the highly successful middle school tackle football program will begin with teams at all three middle schools. Practices will start on April 9th and the kickoff jamboree will take place on April 27th at Mercer Stadium.

SIX MORE HYACKS EARN UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS

Six more Hyacks are on their way to play college football this fall. Isaiah James, Sebastien Reid, Lucas Sabau, Sammy Sidhu and Finn Stark are members of the 2018 graduating class that have signed letters of intent. Rochon Bhattacharya, a member of the 2016 NWSS graduating class, who has spent the past 2 years at West Hills Jr College, has also signed with Simon Fraser University as a transfer student. This brings the total number of Hyacks who will have been given an opportunity to play college football to 40 in the past 15 years.
 
Isaiah James, OL/DL, University of Saskatchewan:
Isaiah becomes the first ever NWSS football grad to sign with the University of Saskatchewan. He was exceptional on both sides of the line of scrimmage and was named to the Provincial All-star team. Defensively he finished with 27 tackles and 2 sacks.
 
Sammy Sidhu, LB/RB, University of Calgary:
Sammy heads to Calgary following a decorated 4-year career at NWSS. In 2017, he was named Provincial All-star and CFC 2nd team All-Canadian. He rushed for 1077 yards and 15 TDs this past season, adding 86 tackles and 2 QB sacks on defense. Sammy is also an exceptional student who earned scholarship offers from all of the top academic institutions in Canada. He plans to study engineering.
 
Sebastien Reid, DB/REC/KR, University of Calgary:

2018 PREPARATIONS UNDERWAY
 
After a very short month of December off, the returning Hyacks got back to work in early January, as they get set to defend their Provincial title. With the majority of players returning from the 2017 championship team optimism is high for another outstanding season.
 
Those that have stood out in the weight room thus far include: Varsity - Arjun Bal, Darrio Cade, Pavan Kainth, Vishaan Narayan and Evan Nolli. JV - Jayden Kastelein, Leonard Lastrado and Balraj Munjal.
Positional skill development and speed school sessions began during spring break and varsity 7 on 7 spring league begins on April 20th.
 
The 2018 game schedule has also been set and can be found here.

THANKS TO ALL OF OUR SPONSORS
 
Our program's success over the past 15 years would not have been possible without the support of so many sponsors during that time. In winning the provincial championship we also took the opportunity to recognize some of our most generous and longest serving partners with championship rings and pendants, many of whom have been platinum sponsors since we began the program in 2003.
 
Among them were: David Sidoo, Ryan Beedie, Dave Vallee (Re/Max Advantage), Lara Graham (The Record), Adam Isfeld (Key West Ford), Matthew Oommen (White Spot) and Louise Perry (G&F Financial).
