Peel board, Football North build on partnership to introduce junior varsity prep team for grade 9, 10 students

Beginning September 2018, the Football North preparation (prep) program will field a junior varsity team, along with a varsity team. The prep program is offered at Clarkson Secondary School in Mississauga and geared towards high-performing student athletes who train year-round in football.

"Football North has committed themselves to the Clarkson Secondary School community through sports infrastructure at the school, community-building and professional development for all Peel board football coaches," says Mary Zammit, principal at Clarkson. "We're excited to build on the existing partnership and continue the success for all students and staff involved."

In September 2016, the Peel District School Board entered into a partnership agreement with Football North to offer a first-of-its-kind football prep program, offered in a Canadian public school. Since its inaugural year, more than 100 top high school football players from across and outside of Ontario have been selected by Football North to be a part of the program, with many of the students receiving university scholarships for football in Canada and the United States.

"Football North ensures our student-athletes get a world-class football and educational experience, already enabling some to get scholarships from top schools like Syracuse, Hawaii, Maine, Western, and more," says Larry Jusdanis, head coach and director of football operations with Football North. "The junior varsity program will provide the best year-round football training and academic support. Multiple years of competing against the top high school programs in North America will be a difference maker for these student-athletes. " 

Applications to the Football North prep program are not being accepted through the Peel board or through Clarkson. Families/Players must contact Football North directly to learn more about their recruitment process, which they run independently. Students who are accepted into the Football North prep program will be registered as students at Clarkson. For more information and to apply for the prep program, visit www.clarksonfootballnorth.ca.
