York University Partnership


The York Region Football Association is proud to be the only football club in York Region with a University partnership. Together with York University we are promoting football as a pathway to post-secondary, and to date are proud to share that over 33 of our alumni are playing football in the CIS/OUA.

Benefits of the Lions Partnership:

  • CIS level coaching (York University coach our Spring varsity program)
  • Coaching development 
  • Resources (York University Varsity Football program suppliers work with us to outfit our club)
  • Football expertise (access to Football Canada board members)
  • Pathways (York University volunteers work with our players to build post-secondary pathways)
  • Volunteers (York University varsity football players run a free camp annually for youth aged 5-9)
