The Niagara Varsity Football Club was formed as a non-profit organization in 2004 with a goal of fielding a Junior Varsity (16 & under) football team in the Ontario Varsity Football League. With an expansion in 2005 of the Varsity (19 & Under) Team and the addition of the Bantam Team (14 & under) in 2007, our goal has always been to provide an elite program within the Niagara Region, developing the skills needed to continue football careers at the next level.

In the last twenty years the Niagara Spears have made a tremendously positive impression within the football community, players, parents and the overall Niagara Region.

The Niagara Spears has regional boundaries, with its players representing over 25 high schools. During the 2019 season all out home games will be played at Kiwanis Field in St. Catharines, routinely attracting 500+ fans with extensive media coverage.

However. The Niagara Spears program is more than just football. Based on concepts of teamwork, accountability and respect, the Spears program rewards commitment and a “team first, family” attitude, helping to shape the leaders of tomorrow.
