Ardrossan Bisons Football -
Once a Bison, Always a Bison
If you have information as to where team alumni are currently playing at a higher level, we would love to hear from you so that we can post the information on this page. We are proud of our Bisons; no matter where or if they continue to play and we are always happy to get feedback from them personally as well.
The Ardrossan Bison Football Program has been instrumental in producing skills and nurturing natural talent. The program also supports players that wish to go onto higher levels of play. Many Bisons play junior ball (Edmonton Huskies or Edmonton Wildcats) while others play at the college level (for various universities across Canada and in the US). Some players even advance to the professional level.
Whether players do continue on at other levels of play or whether alumni go on to coach others, the Ardrossan program equips them to play on or give back to football in other areas.
Our program aims to instill in our young men:
Confidence in their abilities
A sense of Fairplay
A hard Work Ethic
And many more characteristics that will be required and can be drawn upon in all other areas of their lives.
We believe football builds maturity and a readiness to take “life by the horns”.
