Abbotsford Juniors Youth Football
Abbotsford Juniors Football Club Youth football program builds upon the introduction players gain through Junior Football, moving players into teams playing in the Canterbury and District Soccer Football Association (CDSFA) football competition.  The training focus for players is to continue their individual skill development while learning about game and positional play.
