HALIFAX PLAYS REC SOCCER (Fall 2019)

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

DATES/ TIMES: We will be offering this league on Monday and Wednesday nights from 7:30-9:30 PM until October 30 (ignoring Thanksgiving Monday)! Mondays will be optional scrimmages and Wednesdays will be games between actual teams.

LOCATION: Our league will take place at Merv Sullivan Park off Novalea Drive near the MacKay Bridge.

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

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.
-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: $25 per individual or $250 for a co-ed team, which can be paid at Halifaxplays.com/soccer/rec/payments. Please do not pay your fee until you are notified, as this price is subject to change depending on how many weeks we get from the city. 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!
