Christine Advincula wins Jr. Defensive MVP honours

Manitoba Girls Football Association held its 6th championship at Investors Group Field.

North Winnipeg NOMADS team won the Junior Silver Medal and one of their team members, Christine Advincula, received the Jr. Defensive MVP award.

The next season of all girls football tackle will resume in Spring of 2017.

The Manitoba Girls Football Association is the first of its kind in Western Canada.

The MGFA is dedicated to developing and fostering opportunities for girls to play football against girls. We are not competition for minor football in Manitoba, our leagues are played in the spring, this allows girls learn how to play, hone their skills and compete against each other, and if they so choose to compete in the youth leagues in the fall. It is a stand alone program that allows the girls that only want to play against other girls to do so, and still allows the girls that wish to play fall football to do so as well.
