HORNETS YOUTH FOOTBALL gets boys and girls ages 7-17 playing under certified coaches in a safe environment – and learning life lessons along the way.


Five age-specific youth football teams to choose from. Our Atom, Mosquito and Peewee teams play in the Montreal Regional Football League (MRFL). Bantam and Midget teams compete in the Quebec Bantam Football League (QBFL) and the Quebec Midget Football League (QMFL).

Payment plans or reduced rates are available depending on family revenue. To see our sliding scale, click on the button below.


All our youth football coaches have Quebec Amateur Football Federation certified safety training. They attend clinics about the latest in safe practices, behaviours, and injury prevention. Following strict protocol, our coaches ensure daily safety compliance, encouraging players to play freely in a safe, healthy environment where they are supported.

Please note that due to the recent air quality problems in Montreal, activities may be changed or cancelled at any time. Read our policy on the subject.



The top players start in the classroom: kids in our football, basketball and hockey programs must do well in school. We offer scholarships to former Hornets athletes who pursue post-secondary education, and all athletes get regular check-ins for grades, with academic help provided for those who need it.


Our Football program is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year!

Our Bantam and Midget football teams were named Association of the Year in 2023, while our Midget coaches, led by Dimitri Manolopoulos, won the Coaches of the Year award in recognition of their team’s resilience. The team stood out for the commitment of its volunteer coaches and the quality of their work with our young athletes.
