HALIFAX PLAYS REC SOCCER (SUMMER 2019)

Halifax PLAYS is pleased to announce the return of our Wednesday summer recreational soccer league! We look forward to reuniting with our awesome base of recreational players and meeting some new faces as well!

NOTE: Our league will NOT conflict with Halifax Wanderers games scheduled on Wednesday nights! We encourage players to go and support the local team and we will schedule makeup scrimmage sessions on an alternative day decided by players.

DATES/ TIMES: While our field bookings are not yet confirmed, we plan to offer the league Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30 PM for 13 weeks! Games would go from June 5th until August 28th.

LOCATION: We anticipate the league will tentatively take place at the Halifax South Commons opposite the skatepark.

WHO CAN PLAY?: Players of all ages (19+) and genders! It is an ideal league for beginners, as many players have barely touched a soccer ball before and simply want to have fun. While highly skilled players are welcome to participate, our Wednesday rec league tends to be relaxed, fun and non-competitive. Our Saturday intermediate league is oriented towards more skilled players.

FORMAT/ RULES: -This year, we will be playing 6-aside soccer (5 players and a goalie), with each game taking place on one-third of the field! 
-Games will be played every week involving your assigned team, so please let your captain know if you cannot make the game on a given week. This season, scrimmages will only be held on alternative days scheduled due to Halifax Wanderers conflicts.
-Games are self-officiated, and players are encouraged to call their own fouls and be honest about hand-balls.
-We kick the ball in and don't do throw-ins.
-The league is recreational and inclusive in nature! Players mostly care about having fun and not necessarily about score. In fact, we won't be recording game scores at all this season! While highly skilled players are welcome to join, they are expected to include everyone in the game and accommodate to the recreational nature of the league. 
-Slide-tackling or aggressive plays will not be tolerated, and there is no-offside rule. 

COST: $35, which can be paid at Halifaxplays.com/soccer/rec/payments. If you are experiencing financial need or cannot pay on-line, please contact halifaxplays.soccer@gmail.com.
PLEASE NOTE: We have a "first come/ register AND pay, first serve basis" and anticipate the 72 available spots to be taken quickly!
