Our indoor soccer program is strictly recreational and stats are not kept. Players do not have to play outdoor soccer in order to play indoor. Teams are formed mixing players from all areas, skill levels and both years of birth in each age group. Requests are not considered. One session per week (no practices). All sessions are on the indoor fields at the Capital News Centre (4105 Gordon).
Registration deadline is September 30 but we will accept registrations until the age groups are full. Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis. No requests. Due to limited field time we are allocated, we can only register 1,000 players and of the approximately 4,600 children that play outdoor soccer.
Our program is run with volunteer coaches: please sign up to coach your son or daughter. We cannot accommodate co-coaching requests but a coach may recruit from their team for an assistant.

There will be a helper/mentor present at all sessions to assist/help/answer questions. There are no referees. Coaches are allowed on the field. We recommend the coach has one other parent to assist so one is on the field and the other is with the subs on the sidelines. For liability reasons, we cannot allow other adults or siblings to be on the actual fields. The structure is in the 'GAG' format of Game/Activity/Game.
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: For anyone that is applying for financial assistance through KidSport (or elsewhere), the fee must be paid in full, up front. Once we receive the funding, we will reimburse you. Kidsport's link is: http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/index.php?page=british_columbia_how_to_apply

A pro-rated medical refund would take into consideration: the refund fee ($25), uniform fee ($15) and a $10 per session fee for each scheduled session that passed by before the Doctor's note and written request was received. Medical requests received after November 20 would also be subject to an additional fee ($21-$34 depending on age). No refunds will be considered after 7 scheduled sessions have passed by.
