Format: 7v7 (co-ed)
Location: Adanac Park (SW Pitch, grass), and Empire Fields (South Pitch, turf)
Days of Week: Sundays
Kick Off Times: 1 pm, 2 pm, 3 pm (Adanac Park); 8 pm and 9 pm (Empire Fields).
Start Date: September 16th pre-season for new teams; Sept 23rd for returning teams.
Season Length: 10 weeks.
The number of games that a team plays within this 10-week period varies according to a number of factors, such as the number of teams that register, weather cancelations, and on whether or not a team makes a post-season competition, and more. 10-weeks does not necessarily equate to 10 games played. When field permits, weather etc. allows, we try to do pre-season games but these are not guaranteed events. They should be considered a bonus. They may take a season to 11 weeks in duration.
If a team is unavailable to play on a holiday weekend, we will endeavor to schedule a make-up game, which could require that the team plays a double-header (two matches a night). If a team does not make itself available for a double-header on offer, then we may not be able to offer another opportunity to play the missed match.
A typical 8-team league will involve 7-regular season games and a playoff competition for all 8 teams. Most playoff competitions will be a single-knockout format. However, we always try to make post-season competitions a double-knockout affair. The above restrictions (weather, holiday Mondays, etc.) often preclude the double-knockout format. But we try to make it happen as best we can!
If a season has more than 9 teams, the format can result in two divisions, plus playoffs, or an English Premiership-like format where all teams play each other once, with no playoffs. Such a format, as above, takes place over 10 weeks but does not mean every team will play 10 games. For example, a 10-team league played for points like the Premiership would involved nine games. A two division format would involve fewer regular season games but an interdivisional post-season competition, involving more games than a standard single-division format.
In short, we adapt to many different variables and always endeavor to provide games each and every week over the 10-week period.
Other Important info: We are the only rec. league in the city to use BC-certified referees, professional league match balls, and to allocate proceeds to local causes for youth-in-need.
We are also the only rec. league in North America to be the recipient of the MLS Community MVP Award.
Another thing that separates us from the others: We love competitive play but not at the expense of good sporting conduct to one’s own teammates, to opposition players, and to referees. Accordingly, we have a super strict policy on upstanding conduct, and we do follow through with that policy in practice.
Any questions or comments? We'd love to hear from you!
