Football Canada Calls for Proposed Rule Changes for 2023-24 Tackle Rule Book

Hamilton, Ontario – Football Canada is currently accepting rule change proposals for the Canadian Amateur Tackle Football Rule Book, which can be made through contacting Football Ontario.

Please be advised that all proposed rule changes for the 2023 calendar year must be submitted to the Football Canada office by December 15th, 2022.

These proposed changes will be reviewed by the rules committee. All adopted changes will be added as amendments in the current Canadian Amateur Tackle Rule Book for the 2023 season.
