  • Training Supplies, Safety and education

Players are required to purchase their own football cleats and practice jersey.  A oversize t-shirt instead of a practice jersey will do or you can purchase one at the field if you wish.

Once Fees are paid at time of registration and all deposit and gear deposit and volunteer cheques (bond cheques) are received, your child will then be able to receive his/her equipment and take part in the on field activities, not before.  Gear deposit and Fundraising/Volunteer Bond Cheques are held by the club until the end of the season. As long as fundraising and volunteer requirements are met and the gear is returned the cheques are shredded or returned.  The CFVA does not want to cash these cheques as we would rather have the volunteer time and have our gear back!

Cowichan Football welcomes and encourages both male and female players to play at all age group levels.

If your child has any individual needs, contact the team Head Coach and Team Manager so that they can maximize your child’s enjoyment and involvement.

Pre-arranged payments for Kidsport/Jumpstart Programs are also available. (see link below)
