For players born 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004.
Richmond FC is now offering kids (boys and girls) across Richmond a chance to play indoor soccer during the winter months, in five locations around the city, on Sunday nights between 5pm and 9pm.
Players will be drafted into teams closest to where they live, across the city, in West Richmond, City Centre, Cambie and King George, in the U13/U14 and U15/U16 age groups.
The league is intended for all levels of skill, for both boys and girls, and is intended to be played in a fun, good natured mindset. There are no practices, but each game time will have a warm-up period.
Play for the Terra Nova Terrors, the Minoru Mariners, the Seafair Stingers, the Cambie Highwaymen, the Ironwood Inferno, or the King George Royals, and show the rest of Richmond what you’re made of.
Games will be played in two 25-minute legs of ‘5 on 5’ action every Sunday evening, with a golden goal playoff if the scores are tied. A championship table will be kept updated online and a finals series played on the final weekend.
Teams will consist of 10-player rosters and substitutions will be automatically run in a ‘last man off, last man back on’ basis, similar to cosom hockey. Games will run with no goalkeepers, will be refereed by RFC coaches and referees, and will continue from November through to the spring, with a Christmas break.
The cost of registration is $50, which covers the league fees, and a team t-shirt.
Players will provide their own shin-guards and use non-floor marking sneakers. RFC will provide balls and goals.
Overly aggressive play, cheating, mocking, and poor sportsmanship will be penalized in a yellow card/red card manner and persistent infractions will see the player in question sit out the game, at the referee’s discretion.
Games will be played at the following venues:
* Quilchena Elementary off No.1 Rd and Blundell
* McKay Elementary off Granville and No.2 Rd
* Wowk Elementary off No.2 Rd and Steveston Highway
* Talmey Elementary off No.4 Rd and Bridgeport
* Mitchell Elementary off No.5 Rd and Cambie
Registration will remain open until October 20, or until available team numbers are filled.
