Swift Current Minor Football (SCMF) is pleased to announce that Shaw Communications Inc. is continuing its title sponsorship of SCMF for the next five seasons.

Shaw has been the title sponsor of SCMF since the league’s inception in 2006. This partnership extension will see Shaw’s support of the league continue through the 2020 season.

Through Shaw’s support of the league, participation has increased to three divisions with over 150 players representing three host communities: Swift Current, Gull Lake, and Shaunavon.

All players receive equipment supplied by the league (helmets, shoulder pads, pants, and team jerseys). Footwear is the only specific cost for parents beyond their annual registration fee.

“Shaw Communications’ support of the league has allowed us to keep the game affordable for our participants,” commented SCMF president Elden Moberg. “Their support of football in Swift Current, and at the grassroots level in general, is a big reason why our league has been able to grow and gain traction over the past 10 years. We look forward to working with the Shaw team over the next five years to strengthen the game in southwest Saskatchewan.”

In addition to the league sponsorship, Shaw is also introducing its Touchdown for Kids initiative in 2016. For every touchdown scored by a team within SCMF at the Atom, Pee Wee, and Bantam levels, Shaw will donate $20 to KidSport in Swift Current.

The Shaw Communications Swift Current Minor Football season runs from the Labour Day weekend through the end of October with players aged 9 to 14 participating.
