Since that time the PIT has become the largest touch and flag football organization in Canada. We are now affiliated with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Winnipeg High School Football League, and play out of the two best indoor facilities in the province during prime-time hours. It has been a great ride and we hope to provide another decade of the best game day experience in recreational sports!

Registration Deadline: Friday January 5th (be warned the league will sell out much earlier)

As our membership has come to expect the PIT will offer the best facility, fields, competition, referees and prizes in the most competitive and enjoyable environment. Our mandate is to provide players and teams with the best game day experience possible and our history speaks for itself! If you have any questions regarding registration, divisions, competitive balance, or anything else be sure to contact us. No matter what division you played in previously, or if you are new to the game, we can find a competitive division for you. Be part of Canada’s largest and fastest growing full-service touch football league!

New This Season:
The Winnipeg High School Football League divisions have been expanded from one to two divisions to accommodate different levels of skills/different age groupings. In addition, we will be offering a non-contact/no blocking flag division for those 18+. Flag football is the fastest growing subfield of football in Canada with provincial, national, and world championships being held. Be part of this new and growing sport which has been selected to the shortlist of new sports for the Olympics! Most of the rules are the very similar to touch except for three downs for twenty yards rather than three for 10 (and of course flagging instead of touch which brings some tackle jukes into play!). Check out the rules here: http://footballcanada.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/FlagRB_secure.pdf
