Hyack Banner 2011




ATTENTION all parents .... New to Hyacks? New to Football? Or always wanted to know more about the game?
Join us in the bleachers of Mercer stadium on Wed. August 26th @ 6:30pm for a casual session on Football 101. Watching your Hyack player is far more enjoyable with a solid knowledge of the game's basics.
Learn the field, the scoring, the positions on offense and defense, the strategy behind the plays ... Everything from "what is the chain gang and what is it used for" to "the Hyacks are 4th and 2 and should they go for the 1st down?"
This is a very casual and interactive learning session seated in our home bleachers in front of our field for visual reference. You WILL learn, you WILL enjoy you WILL appreciate the game more from this basic FOOTBALL 101.
Mark your calendars: The 12th annual Hyacks Football Tailgate Auction - presented by River Market, will be held on Saturday, October 17th at LaPerla Ballroom. It is the largest fundraiser of the year for the football program. For more details on how you can get involved with this fantastic event, please contact: Nancy O'Connor

Fall camp is underway with close to 80 players battling for starting positions and doing their part to make sure the 2015 Hyack Football season is a memorable one. Fall camp runs from Aug 24 through Sept 3rd, consisting of practices every weeknight, and includes film sessions, position meetings and weight room sessions. The complete schedule can be found here.

This year the Hyacks will travel to Chilliwack for a portion of fall camp, departing at 9 am on Wed, Aug 26th and returning on Fri, Aug 28th. This will be an overnight camp with players staying at CFB Chilliwack for 2 nights. All meals and transportation will be provided at no additional cost. All players are expected to attend. We ask that players arrive at Mercer on Aug 28th by 8:30 pm packed and ready to go.


The Royal City Hyacks youth football program has already been practicing for much of the summer. On Saturday the Pee wee Hyacks scored on a final play TD pass to defeat Cloverdale in their tournament. Last weekend most of the teams and cheerleaders took part in the Langley tournament and placed very well. Both Jr Bantam and Atom teams finished 3-1 and took 2nd place in their respective divisions. Four flag teams also took part with all of them faring well. All Hyack teams will open the regular season on Monday, September 7th with a full slate of games at Mercer Stadium.
While registration has now filled up for most of the teams, our pee wee team is still looking for more players. If you know of anyone aged 10-11 (2004-2005) that is still interested in joining, please have them register online here


With the season just around the corner, the Varsity Hyacks are looking for help in a number of areas off the field. The most pressing need is for a Game Night Coordinator. If you are interested please contact coach Lalji at [email protected] to get more details. But there are a number of smaller roles also available. Our program has always received outstanding parent and community support, so we expect 2015 will be no different. We look forward to hearing from you.
