At Selects, we believe that no lessons will ever compare to the lessons that the sport of football can teach, and that passion for football is unifying. Football teaches the importance of both individual effort as well as teamwork; it teaches the importance of collective goals, as each player on the field must think as one and move as one to be successful. Football inspires greatness by instilling a sense of purpose as well as the competitive drive for success. Football players know and understand the importance of working hard in order to make dreams come true. We want to challenge Selects’ players to ask themselves how their passion for football can connect to their goals for the future. We believe this will come through in practice, training, and commitment.

Selects Football was founded by Zeljko and Deb Stefanovic in 2011. The program started with one 12U Football team, 33 young Saskatchewan football players trained through the winter and travelled to San Antonio, Texas, to compete in the International Pigskin Football Tournament in February 2012. Since then, the program has thrived, and winter football in Saskatchewan has become a reality, offering players a chance to train for an extended season and to be able to pit their talent against our neighbors in the south.

Since 2011, Selects Football has grown from one team to between four and six teams each year. Selects teams have competed in San Antonio and Dallas, Texas, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In the 2017-18 season, the Saskatchewan Selects were joined by two Manitoba Selects teams that competed in the first inter-provincial Selects Bowl at Yara Centre. In July, 2019, the Selects hosted Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a week-long skills camp and games in Regina, Sask.

Selects Football offers a new and exciting opportunity for youth football players to train and compete throughout the Canadian winter. Interested?
