The Elks are committed to supporting amateur football in Northern Alberta through the Champions in the Community program.  As part of that commitment, the team hosts and participates in the following initiatives to develop the stars of tomorrow and support amateur coaches.


Annual Amateur Football Camp
This football camp immerses 100 Atom and Peewee aged players from the greater Edmonton area in a controlled-contact teaching environment to demonstrate the fundamentals of football and allow players to better understand the game through mini games and skills stations.
Elks Youth Flag Football League
The Elks along with Football Alberta are proud to offer the Elks Youth Flag Football League for kids aged 5-15. No experience necessary.  The league runs from late August until the end of October right at Foote Field. 


Northern Alberta Football Summit
Launched in 2013, the annual invitation-only event brings together football leaders from all levels of the sport to help build a more competitive amateur football environment that supports coaches and develops the stars of tomorrow.
