    Football Comes to Hatzic Middle School and Heritage Park Middle School


    Mission Roadrunners Football

    For the past eleven years the Mission Roadrunner Football team has worked hard to establish itself as one of the perennial contenders for the AA championships. During that time the program has earned four provincial championships at various levels and three other appearances in the final game. These results were achieved due to the efforts of the athletes, coaches and parents. With the creation of two middle schools in 2015, it is the opportune time to introduce football programs at Hatzic and Heritage Park Middle Schools. These programs will be open to all students who will be in grades 7 or 8 in September. Grade 9 students will have the option of playing at their Middle School or for the Mission junior varsity team.

    With your help, we can start new traditions at our Middle Schools and continue the program that was established 11 years ago at Mission Secondary. For more information, please pick up a brochure at your child's school office and return the completed registration forms to the school they will be attending in September.

    Registering prior to the end of this school year would be appreciated as it would allow us to order the necessary equipment in time.
