For some Monday June 1st is the biggest day of their young lives, as the CJFL presents its National Signing Day.
The day is earmarked every year on June 1st, the day in which players can finally sign with a CJFL club. When a player signs he is essentially signing for his entire junior football career as the player then becomes the property of that team.
So many considerations are made before signing with a CJFL club; location, team support, roster depth, coaching staff, scholarship program, etc all weighs in on a player’s decision.
National Signing Day is not only exciting for the players, but the coaches as well. Their ideas, hopes and hard work will finally come to fruition as they start to fill their roster spots.
Following National Signing Day coaches can continue to recruit and sign a player immediately if he’s a good fit for their team. That said the bulk of the players ready to play in the CJFL will sign on June 1st.
Once players sign on the dotted line, coaches can begin developing their schemes and systems around their potential starters. They can also begin preparing for their Main Camp along with Week 1 of the regular season, still to be determined as restrictions from COVID-19 begin to lift.
All three Conferences and 17 CJFL teams will participate on June 1st, signing players to their 2020 roster.
Fans can keep up to date with CJFL National Signing Day on social media with #CJFLSigningDay as teams will be posting once a player signs.

The St. Clair Fratmen Football team officially unveiled its new logo through social media and on the www.saintsathletics.ca website. The logo utilizes the St. Clair corporate Griffin inside a football while maintaining the historical text of the Fratmen nickname. St. Clair College’s traditional green and gold colours are present throughout the design.
“We think this new Fratmen Football team logo stands out and it is fittingly inspired by the griffin which ties our Saints family together,” stated SAA President Kshitij Punj. He continued, “With the launch of the new logo, my SAA colleagues and I are really looking forward to seeing the team wear our colours in action. The operations and development of this team are underway which is very exciting.”
As the season nears additional branding will be put in place featuring this logo. Also attached is the uniform design of the St. Clair Fratmen in both the white and green options.
Due to COVID, the entire league is currently on shut down of any football related activity until June 1st. The season schedule will be released when the Canadian Junior Football League leadership, after consultation with the provincial and federal health organizations, feels it is safe to resume activity.
