IMMEDIATE ACTION: Litter and Reported Consumption of Alcohol on City Fields
Monday June 13, 2016
To All Team Reps
The HTFA has been sent notice from the City of Hamilton regarding complaints about the prevalence of litter at fields used by the league. In addition, reports have been made about alcohol and "tailgating" occurring at the fields.
Contents of the letter from the City:
"In addition to the litter, it has been reported through residents in the area that there is some aspect of tailgating that occurs following play. I am informing you that the consumption of alcoholic beverages on City of Hamilton sports facilities is strictly prohibited. It is an offense under the Liquor Licence Act, in regards to liability, and furthermore, is in violation of Section 11 (1) and (2) of the City of Hamilton By-law 95-126 (as amended), without written authorization of City Council, and shall only be allowed provided certain conditions are met."
Further reports of the above can lead to the league losing access to the fields.
We ask all teams and players to immediately regulate their team and to leave the field in good condition without litter and that consuming alcohol at the fields is prohibited.

The following message was sent to team reps regarding team registration.
Thank you for you're understanding on the NEW registration via TFONT. For those who paid and left without getting the info might be surprised with what has to be done as a team rep now.
As stated there will be bumps please be patient and it is the REPS responsibility not the HTFA to make sure all players have done their both waivers and are legit to touch the field of play.
Remember ALL teams must have goal post pads 6 feet tall, 2inches thick, min 4 securing straps.
All players will have a the same shirt, or jersey as the team registered. That number will be his/hers for the remainder of the year.
If your team colour is the same as the team your playing against home team must change and as stated all players must have THEIR number to be eligible to play.
TFONT waiver, and our HTFA waiver must be filled out and handed in at next meeting…. NO EXCEPTIONS. NO PLAYER CAN PLAY WITHOUT BOTH WAIVERS AND ON THE TEAM ROSTER.
I will be asking TFONT if we can as a league keep our max player 23man roster …
Here is your link to register via TFONT for your roster…
Updated Fee Schedule and Waiver Forms Due April 20
Tuesday March 29, 2016
To all team reps:
As you know, the process for paying the $150 per team insurance fee that has been historically paid by HTFA on behalf of the teams is changing.
Teams will now register their team through the TFONT website and pay the $150 fee directly to TFONT through the online registration process.
In order to align our league fees with this new process, all team fees are reduced by $150. Balance of league fees are due at the April 20 meeting noted below. Teams will still need to pay $150 to TFONT separately.
First League Meeting
Wednesday March 23, 2016
Huntington Park Rec Centre-Room 2
Teams need to bring $750 to hold a place in the 2016 HTFA League.
Final League Meeting
Wednesday April 20, 2016
Huntington Park Rec Centre-Room 2
Teams will need to submit a completed hard copy of the HTFA Waiver Form found on this website on the Links page. There must be 1 completed waiver form for each player who is registered with TFONT and playing on your team in the HTFA for 2016.
Teams will also need a final payment to be included in the schedule as outlined below.
Teams who have not registered with TFONT and paid the insurance fee by April 20 will not play in the HTFA 2016 season.
Mens League: total cost per team-14 game season and playoffs
returning team: $1,750 -$150 = $1,600
new team: $1,900 - $150 = $1,750
Womens League: total cost per team-10 game season and playoffs
returning team: $1,250 - $150 = $1,100
new team: $1,400 - $150 = $1,250
All teams will need numbered uniforms for all players this season. Prepare now for this requirement this season.
The e-mail from Kieran with the information on registering with TFONT is coming soon.
Keep checking for updates.
See you for Kickoff 2016!
