Rules

Rules for the Summer 2015 Recreational Adult Soccer season are still being finalized.

However, rules for our Winter 2015 season, which will be similar, can be found attached at the bottom of this page. Everyone in the league, including subs, should read these rules in full.

The biggest change that we will be implementing for our rec league, especially for games that will count, is a "No-Intentional-Contact" policy, borrowed from a fun rec soccer program in Ontario that one of the league organizers participated in. This rule is intended to promote passing plays involving all teammates, while discouraging physical play involving intentional (not incidental) contact.

Our "Sub Policy" and "Waitlist Policy" are two further sets of rules which are outlined in more detail with their own webpages. Please note that, like our main rules, these policies may later be revised.

The spirit of the rules is above all to: Have fun & be safe, treat all players with dignity and respect, and keep competition secondary to having a good time. Gross unsportsmanlike conduct, such as the utterance of racial, religious or sexist slurs, the instigation of fights, or conducting illegal activity in facilities rented by the league can result in suspension or expulsion from our league with no refund, at the discretion of league executives & the Halifax PLAYS Board.

We also encourage players to contact halifaxplays.soccer@gmail.com with suggestions for how rules can be further amended and improved. In fact, almost all our rules have at some point been made with the consultation and/ or voting approval of former players and captains.
