What age can my child start playing soccer?

U4- Child must have 4th birthday

by December 31 of current year.

What if not enough coaches volunteer?

We will not be able to field all of the teams and will issue refunds to those players who are unable to fit on a team. (Max numbers are set by the OSA and we cannot go over these.) If we are short coaches/teams players will be placed on teams in order of registration.

WHAT ARE THE EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS?

The following are required 

  • Shin guards, must cover full shin
  • running shoes, preferrable - soccer cleats( must be soccer, no metal, not baseball cleats)
  • U4-U8 Socks, Shorts, Jersey is provided by Timbits
  • U10+ Socks (tall enough to cover the shin guards) &  Shorts Preferably both black  Only Jersey is provided

All items of jewelry (necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, leather bands, rubber bands, etc.) are forbidden and must be removed. Using tape to cover jewelry is not permitted (with the exception of medical alert bracelets). Make sure you think twice before getting pierced. The healing time might bring you into soccer season, and you will not be permitted to play with piercings for safety purposes.

Rubber bands to hold your hair are permitted, but wearing them on your wrist is not. Bobby pins are very dangerous. A quick header the wrong way and it goes through your skin or someone's eyes if there is an accidental collision.

All players should also come with full water bottles.  Exercise is thirsty work!

 

When will I know what team my child is on?

Shortly before the start of the season, you will hear either from the convenor or your child's coach informing you of their start date. Please watch your junk email. The website will also be updated with information as we have it.
