Mens & Womens Pre-season Rankings Posted
We have received a notice from the City of Brampton of their cancellation of our permits for the Brampton Tournament.
News from the Province recently has been positive and provided us with hope for the season, but until the government officially relaxes restrictions, we will continue to make decisions on tournaments in a timely fashion as their dates approach. When we return to tournament play TFONT will be issuing guidelines to remind us to create and maintain physical distancing when not on the field of play.
I am grateful for the selfless work of the league Presidents and managers during this COVID-19 pandemic as they prepare for the 2020 season and recognize that players across Ontario are anxious to return to play and working hard and doing their part during this crisis.
We are eagerly looking forward to receiving further direction from the Province, which will shape our plans moving forward.
We remain committed to having the Trillium Tour in 2020 once conditions are deemed safe.

THE MEMORY OF ED LAVERTY
Ed was the driving force behind the Ottawa Nepean Touch Football League. Under his guidance and leadership the ONTFL reached it's 50th year; where he excelled as an athlete, administrator, leader, builder, role model and noted ambassador. He also presided over Touch Football Ontario for nearly a decade and helped launch Touch Football Canada.
Ed was instrumental in enabling 40 years of Provincial and National Touch Championships across the country to take place. He introduced thousands to the sport of touch football; with second and third generations now playing.
His selfless efforts were acknowledged in 2013 when he was awarded the Mayor’s Cup Award for his Outstanding Contribution to Sport in Ottawa and in 2014 when he was inducted in the prestigious Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame where he was recognized for his 50 years of contribution and dedication as a community builder.
He was a special man, who would give you the shirt off his back. He was always quick to lend a helping hand and extend an open door to whoever needed it. He was a jokester, famous for his one liners and a loyal friend.
He’s an irreplaceable “One of a Kind” humble man who is missed beyond measure but who's legacy is carried on through his family, colleagues and the many lives he touched in world of sport and community.
