The Valley Community Football League’s Starbowl is fast approaching, and there will be a large contingent of Mission talent participating in the league’s annual all-star games.

The Starbowl is the VCFL’s annual end-of-the-year celebration, honouring the year’s best on the gridiron. The five-team league is represented locally by the Mission Niners.

The big game occurs on April 30 at Exhibition Stadium on Chilliwack, with Pee Wee division players kicking off at 10 a.m., Junior Bantam at 2 p.m., and Bantam at 4 p.m. The event is coordinated by the VCFL, as a way to continue its traditions and celebrate the achievements of all five associations.

Insertion camps for the Starbowl ran last weekend in Abbotsford. Teams for the Starbowl will be a mixture of all five clubs in each age group.

Mission players heading to the game are:

– Pee Wee players – Sagan Sing, Gurbir Dhaliwal, Ethan Gailey, John Kurtis Jr., Hayden Royal and Nathan McMahon.
