Program Changes

As we wait for the league and our Public Health unit to allow a full return to contact football, the Peterborough Otters will be running a Flag Football and Lineman program to keep our athletes active and allow them to continue developing their skills. Our Flag Football will follow the standard Football Canada 7v7 Flag format, which includes full field, 4 Quarters (12 minutes), special teams, and QB's can run. The internal-program Flag seasons will end in some cross over games and league tournaments as permitted under the OPFL return to play guidelines. Our Lineman program will involve these players practicing their technical skills, competing against other linemen, keeping them in a competitive football environment, and preparing them for the return to contact. Linemen may also participate in the 7v7 Games as either a Centre or a Pass-Rusher.


The Tryout/Combine Fee is $75.00. This Fee will be used to determine the division of 7v7 Teams.

If the Tryout Fee was in before January 31st, the Spring Fee is $200.

If the Tryout Fee was in after January 31st, the Spring Fee is $300.

Player Insurance is included in the cost.

Players will receive an Otters Spring shirt to wear when attending both the internal and external 7v7 Games.

Players must have cleats, a mouthguard, shorts with no pockets, and a personal water bottle.
