Interested in Playing Junior Football?
Are you between 17 and 22 years of age and interested in playing football with the Winnipeg Rifles next season? Playing football in the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) provides the opportunity for young men aged 17 to 22 to participate in highly competitive post-high school football. A handful of standout players are typically signed directly to CFL rosters each season. Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) permits up to two years of play in leagues such as the CJFL before a player begins to lose eligibility for playing university ball. If interested, please send your inquiry and information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Rifles signed their 2017 Rookies Saturday June 3rd at Investor's Group Field.
