4v4 Winter League U13-U18

 

4v4 Recreational Winter League Description

This is the introductory level of soccer at Ottawa TFC.  Whether you are new to the sport and want to try it out or have experience playing but don’t wish to play at a competitive level, this is the programme for you!  Test the sport and play for the enjoyment of playing.  In this fun atmosphere, players will learn how to be comfortable with the ball at their feet, grow as players and will expand their love of the game.

Once again we will be heading to our indoor soccer fields for this winter, where we enjoyed a fun and popular season last year, despite the pandemic!  Each Saturday we will play at the Superdome Sports Centre in Gloucester (on Bearbrook Rd) for an hour between 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM (08h00 to 10h00).  This will be a fun "4v4" league with goalkeepers and nets, in which players will have lots of "time on the ball" at every session. 

Get your long-sleeves on and come play!

Level of Play:

All U13-U18 players (born from 2004 to 2009).  Balanced teams will be formed by age, ability and gender.

Season Length:

Twelve weeks, Saturdays beginning November 20, 2021, and ending February 19, 2022. 

There will be a two week break for the holidays starting on December 19, 2021, and ending January 7, 2022. 

Note: On rare occasions there may be some dome closures during the season that are beyond our control.  If this affects our programmes, no reduction in fees or refunds will be given.

Format: 

All games will be 4-a-side, with keepers and a referee.  The game will look somewhat like futsal does in a gym, but it will be played on turf in the dome.  It will be "small-sided" soccer.

  • Games will kick-off at 8:00 or 9:00 AM on Saturdays at the Superdome in Gloucester and will last 50 minutes.

Volunteers: A $50 non-volunteer fee is charged per family for each season and is refundable upon volunteering to help us out.  There are lots of opportunities to volunteer, with every field needing a Field Marshal to verify the attendance and health status of each player, coaching roles to help organise the games and players and other opportunities to help the program and club.  Indicate that you want to volunteer when you register your player!
