Our History

IN THE BEGINNING

The Club was formed in the South Nepean (Barrhaven) area in August of 1978 by Mr. J. Jones. The first team fielded was at the Mosquito level and the first team played was the Bell Warriors. Known as the Barrhaven Buccaneers, the team colours were maroon, white and gold.  In 1981, the Club changed its name to Redskins after a popular NFL team.  

Over the next 18 years, PeeWee, Bantam and then Tyke (in 1996) levels were added. Midget returned to the fold in 2003.

During the course of the 1996 season, Mr. Jones handed ownership of the Club over to the community. The Club operated as a non-profit organization and began an aggressive campaign to raise funds for the purchase and repair of much needed equipment for all levels of play. A formal incorporation also saw the Club officially become known as the Redskins Community Football Club.

PRESENT DAY

The Club retired the name Redskins in 2013 and rebranded as the Eagles starting with the 2014 season.  The Club currently consists of six levels of tackle football: Mite through Midget. The Club plays on Bob Stephen Field (named after a long timeCoach, Bob Stephen, who passed away in 2009). A fieldhouse at the site provides secure storage for Club equipment as well as home and away change facilities for teams on game day. A scoreboard (one of the few in Ottawa) was installed in 2010 and proudly displays the Club logo and provides a level of professionalism at all home games.

Our cheerleading squads now number four (4), with now over 45 young ladies on Mite, Tyke, Mosquito and Senior squads who are active at all Eagles home games. Our involvement in the first year of the NCAFA Girls Touch Football (est. 2003) program has now resulted in the Club fielding 7 teams at each of the PeeWee, Bantam and Midget levels.  In addition, the Club runs a spring Flag Football program for players aged 5 to 14.

The Eagles will wear the colours of its namesake NFL team, the Philadelphia Eagles, wearing green, white, black and silver.

The Club continues to promote health, discipline and sportsmanship across all levels of play and remains committed to promoting the sport of football in the South Nepean area.
