About Us


In The Beginning

The Mill Woods Grizzlies were incorporated as a not-for-profit society in 1996. That year Peewee and Atom teams participated in a league with the Sherwood Park Minor Football Association. In 1997 Bantam and Pewee teams played in the Capital District Minor Football Association (CDMFA). The Atom team was revived in 1999.

Since 1998, the Grizzlies have had an active Board of Directors, with Annual General Meetings and election of officers. The Board organizes a variety of activities to foster the development of the football program, with primary focus on fund-raising and finances, social activities, and communication with parents.
