Hundreds of teams from across B.C. laced up their cleats on the Semiahmoo Peninsula last week, as the White Rock-South Surrey Titans hosted flag-football provincial championships over three days at South Surrey Athletic Park.
In the end, six teams were crowned champs of the British Columbia Provincial Football Association, and five will now advance to nationals, which will be held across at various locales across the country, depending on age.

The hosts from White Rock – who had a total of 30 teams and more than 350 players taking part across all divisions – earned one championship, as the association’s Bombers team won the under-12 division. Other champions included the North Delta Gators (U19), North Surrey Destroyers (U16), Coquitlam K9s (U14), Coquitlam Regulators (U10) and Cloverdale Tigers (U8).
In total, more than 1,700 players took part. The event also included food trucks and cheer teams.
“It was a great tournament with a cast of hundreds,” Titans vice-president Tina Giustino told Peace Arch News.
