All, the city of Hamilton has updated the date for facility closures, the city has moved to phase 2 of the provincial reopening as of Friday June 12, 2020. This includes the restart of outdoor sports, if physically distanced, for training only and with NO SCRIMAGE OR GAMES. We received notice from The HWDSB (The Hamilton School Board) all field rentals are cancelled for this summer. We will continue to monitor the city updates and update the website accordingly.
Thank you for your patience.
We have added a new tab under the “Fields” menu. Using the “Field Status” link you can now check for field closures as they happen.
Teams must take pictures of the front and back of ALL gamecards. Please email the pics to

Karelo allows for 22 players on the roster, the HTFA will align our roster size to be 22 players as well. This will eliminate the need for players to sign an HTFA paper waiver or roster sheet to be eligible to play in the HTFA for 2020. Players 21 and 22 on the roster are not eligible for Touch Football Ontario tournaments.
Team Managers are responsible for ensuring that all players participating in a game are registered with TFONT and have accepted the on-line waiver.
