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 adherance to guidance from the Department of HealthSoccer NS & the broader Halifax PLAYS organization. All prospective registrants should read our return-to-play protocols @

Based on this, we will be having two variations of 5-a-side, non-competitive games, consistent with Soccer NS's guidelines. Both will run over 10-12 weeks in a combined Summer-Fall season: 

  • Halifax PLAYS Rec Soccer: Structured in a similar way to past rec soccer offerings, except with teams limited to 5 players & no switching between games. These will be run on Wednesdays (and the occasional Monday) on multiple fields across the peninsula, with a flat $30 registration fee for the season. More info available @
  • 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 fee & grants access to a private HP group on the app, from which one can sign up to individual games with a $5 drop-in, with most games planned at Gorsebrook Park. More info @

As always, all programs are contingent on many factors, in particular interest & the possibility that there may be more sudden cancellations of games. 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 SquadFusion). Please do contact if you have any registration or payment difficulties in the process!
