What equipment do I need?
You are required to wear shin pads, as well, proper soccer shoes are recommended. You will be provided with socks, shorts and a jersey.
What if I’ve never played or haven’t played for years?
No worries, we’ve had multiple players join last year who had little to no experience and they loved it. We also take this into consideration when making the teams and will try to match you up on a team with players who possess strong leadership skill the ability to coach.
I’d love to play, but I fear people will take it too serious and I might hate it
We understand – and we hear you, this is why we started a recreational divisions mainly for this purpose. Although the intermediate division is considered recreational, it can be more competitive than some people like. Therefore the recreational division is a laid back version where it’s all about fun and teamwork.
What time and day are the games usually?
Recreational Division plays on Tuesday nights (with the occassional Friday match)
Intermediate Division plays on Thursday nights (with the occassional Monday match)
Super Division plays on Monday nights
game times are usually 6:30 / 7:30 or the occasional 8:30 start time
How are the teams determined?
he teams are determined by the committee who manages the league. Each player is assigned a skill level and based on that “rating” the teams are balanced based on a final total score. Later in the season, we may adjust / move players from team to team if things become uneven
Are there any refunds if I decide not to play (after making my payment)?

- Before the second scheduled game is played – 50% of registration fee
- Once the third scheduled game is played – no refund
What are the rules?
Here is a link to FIFA rules with the difference that we DO NOT allow slide tackles in our league
How come you don't re-use the jerseys?
We tried collecting jerseys one season, we offered $5 dollars for each one returned after the final game. Unfortunately we only received approximately 25-30% of the original amount. When we tried to utilize them for the next season, we could only use about 15% due to sizes, change in sponsor and jersey colours available.
How come the games are only 60 minutes?
The short answer is that we don’t have access to more fields. We’re limited to what fields are available (since we’re not the only ones renting them) other factors are increased costs (for fields, refs and linesmen – longer games = more pay) and additional days for scheduling. (instead of just playing every Thursday, games could be on a Friday or Saturday as well)
