SOCCER

After a long hiatus due to COVID-19, Halifax PLAYS is please to announce the return of soccer... We look forward to be reuniting with our awesome players & meeting new faces as well!!


Now, our format has been significantly adapted from the usual, with strict adherence to guidance from the Department of HealthSoccer NS & the broader Halifax PLAYS organization. All prospective registrants should read our return-to-play protocols @ halifaxplays.com/soccer/rules.


Based on this, we will be having two variations of 4/5-a-side, non-competitive games, consistent with Soccer NS's guidelines. Both will run over 8-10 weeks in a Winter season: 

  • Halifax PLAYS Rec Soccer: Structured in a similar way to the Fall rec soccer offerings, with teams limited to 6 players & games being 4 vs.4 by default. These will be run on Sundays at the BMO Soccer Field, with a flat $60 registration fee for the season. This will be more oriented towards beginner to intermediate players. More info @ halifaxplays.com/soccer/rec.
  • Halifax PLAYS Saturday Drop-In Soccer: Structured in a pick-up-format, with player RSVP's strictly managed using the Bloxo app. Here, the initial registration is free & grants access to a private HP group on the app, from which one can sign up to individual games with a $6 drop-in, with most games played at the Community YMCAk. Info @ halifaxplays.com/soccer/saturdays.

One big change: We will ask players to choose which of the above two programs they can sign up for, i.e. you cannot play in both. This is designed both to minimize the switching of folks across different sport "bubbles" & also maximize the number of players who can play at least one week of soccer each week. With very limited spots, we do anticipate spots will run out very quickly.


As always, all programs are contingent on many factors, in particular interest & the possibility that there may be more sudden cancellations of games with COVID. That said, we urge all to stay safe, follow the rules, and stay positive in these difficult times... Thanks for hanging in there!


Please be advised that we are also using a new registration system (via TeamLinkt). Please do contact if you have any registration or payment difficulties in the process!
