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.
The organization’s name was changed to Millwoods Minor Football Association to accommodate the introduction of a second Pee Wee team called the Maulers.
We introduced another addition to our Association. A second Atom team called the Maulers.
We grew yet again and had six teams which included the Midget Grizzlies.
We were looking forward to utilizing the artificial turf field that we have watched be developed through our last season.
The artificial turf field was open for use to the community.
We moved into the Bear Den 2.0 - a more permanent location within the Millwoods Pavilion at 7008-23 Ave.
The first season of the new Atom tackle program.
We look forward to continuing our growth and building our football family in the Millwoods Community.
