What does one have to do, or be, to be eligible for the CFL Draft. Do you have to be a Canadian Citizen? Also, what are some ways to contact scouts while overseas? I am interested in playing in the CFL, but am currently overseas playing ball right now; though I am American. Any info would be helpful.

Gunner13, you should hit the various team’s websites as they post when and where they are holding walk-on try-outs. Generally though they are in the States. I don’t know of any teams that hold anything in Europe. In case you didn’t know though, CFL teams are bound to a Canadian Content quota and this will limit how many ‘imports’ they can carry on a roster. 19 of the 40 man roster can be imports, the rest are non-imports.

Who is a non-import? Not necessarily a touque-wearing, Labatts drinkin Hoser as you might expect. The rules are as follows:

a) A player who has never received football training outside Canada, or,
b) A player who participated in a game outside of Canada after his 17th birthday, but had prior to his 17th birthday received training only in Canada, or,
c) A player who lived an aggregate period of five years in Canada prior to turning 15.

Some other restrictions apply, like legal stuff, Can-You-Cross-The-Border type things, the CFLPA might be able to shed more light on that stuff. Good Luck!
