This past summer season we inducted the 2017 Hall of Fame Class. We have updated the HOF and are now paying homage to some of the greatest touch football players in Manitoba history,

The Assassins are just the second team to be inducted into the Team category of the Manitoba Touch Football Hall of Fame. The criteria for the Team category is as follows:

"To be considered for selection in the Team Hall of Fame, a team must have won at minimum five Touch Football championships. Those five championships may come from any division and include championships from both indoor and outdoor seasons. Teams may also be considered if they have played a minimum of ten years of football (both inside and outside of the PIT) and have reached a level of success (as measured by sportsmanship, productivity, and perseverance) in lieu of five championship trophies. In some cases longstanding teams may change names over the course of their history, thus teams must demonstrate that the majority of players have successfully transitioned from one team to the next to be deemed eligible. "

The Assassins began playing in 1978 in the WCTFL the precursor to the Winnipeg Touch Football League (WTFL). During the next three decades they were one of the most decorated touch football teams winning, a then record, 23 Manitoba championships. Along the way the Assassins won championships in the PIT Football league, the Ultimate Touch Football League and finished 2nd at Nationals.

A few highlights:
23 Manitoba titles
26 Labor Day Tournament championships (a record that will never be broken!)
6 Western Championships
2 TouchBowl Championships
2 Coed Championships
1 A (intermediate) National Title
