Level The Playing Field
The Level The Playing Field Program aims to grow the sport of football in the Greater Toronto Area. One of our main objectives is to support the safety of football through education and mentorship.
Since 2009 the Toronto Argonauts have been successful in adding 11 football teams to the education sector within Toronto. Through a variety of partnerships, the Argonauts have provided a value of close to $400,000 in funding to provide subsidies for athletic therapists and helmet certification.
A key part of the programming includes various appearances at practices, games and clinics to encourage positive climate on and off the field of football. Each year the Argonauts host a football leadership seminar entitled Captain’s Club. A variety of high school football captains hear from speakers such as our GM Jim Barker and Michael Clemons.
We continue to develop relationships with various school football teams and Minor Football organizations through the many school boards and the Ontario Football Alliance.
