Our Li'l Sambas Kids Soccer Programs:

We launched our new Li'l Sambas kids program last year and had an incredible response with over 350 kids joining us each week at Immaculata by the end of the Fall season.

All of our Li'l Sambas programs are a joint venture between Footy Sevens and Futuro Soccer Academy. Those of you who have watched the Futuro Academy kids train before or after your Footy Sevens game will already have been amazed at the level of technique and attention to detail at each session. Those same core principles will be adapted to each age level to give an unrivaled start in the game for both beginners and kids with little experience.

New For 2022 - Sunday Morning House Leagues

We've already got 250 kids registered for our developmental programs on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings at Immaculata. This year we'll also be adding Sunday morning house leagues for ages 6 & 7, 8 & 9 and 10 & 11. No training or drills, it's a weekly league game just like your Footy Sevens adult leagues.

Covid & Vaccine Policies as of March 1st
3 March 2022 @ 10:33 AM by Andrew Park

Hello Footyseveners, 

Despite the changes from the provincial government regarding vaccine passports, both uOttawa and Carleton will continue to be require all those who enter the facility to show proof of vaccination. We understand that this policy will continue until the end of the semester for all indoor facilities, at which point it will be reviewed and likely removed.

All other venues (Ben Franklin Dome, Hornet's Nest Dome, Sooner's Megadome, Immaculata) will no longer require proof of vaccination. 

All domes will continue to require players to wear masks when entering and exiting the facility. If and when this changes, we will update everyone.

Please let us know if you have any questions,

3 January 2022 @ 1:03 PM by Andrew Park

Hi everyone,

Following today's provincial announcement, all leagues will be postponed until January 26th at the earliest (see below for venue specific information). The impending lockdown will also cause delays to the start dates of the Winter 2022 league program. Over the next few days, the admin team will be updating league schedules to reflect the new restrictions and plan for the restart. We will operate under the premise that sports will return by the end of the month and will keep you updated if restrictions are changed or extended.

  • The current Fall and Winter leagues that were in progress as of today will be postponed until January 26th. 
  • The Winter 2022 that were scheduled to start in January & February will be delayed anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks from the date of reopening. Start dates will be adjusted on our homepage, but please note that these are tentitive and subject to change.

As it stands, the current reopening dates for venues are as follows. Leagues will resume as soon as it is permitted to do so.

  • Opening on January 26th: Ben Franklin Dome, Hornets Nest, Sooners Dome, Carleton University, Redeemer High School
  • Opening on February 1st: uOttawa Lees Dome, uOttawa Montpetit Gym

Stay safe and Happy New Year,

What's coming up at Ottawa Footy Sevens
24 November 2021 @ 3:32 PM by Chris Surgeoner

Hi Footyseveners,

With only a week until the last of our winter leagues kick-off, we wanted to reach out with a quick update on what the next few months have in store. Included below is information on our remaining league spaces for this season, an update on next season (Winter 2022), pickup soccer, kids programs and a holiday offer.

 

Winter Leagues (November/December Starts): - remaining spaces.

 

Winter 2022 (January/February Starts):

Registration for next season will open the week of December 6th. The lineup for next season will look very similar to the current one with leagues located centrally (uOttawa & Carleton), the east end (Gloucester Hornet's Nest) and in the west (Ben Franklin Dome & Sooners Megadome). Full details of all league options will be online in the next week or so.

 

Charity Outdoor Pickup Soccer:

100% of the proceeds of our remaining Outdoor Pickup Games will be donated to local charities. We've had a great 4 or 5 months of pickup soccer, and built up a great community of players. Since we are obviously coming towards the end of the outdoor season, we've decided to make all remaining outdoor 60-minute games only $8 and 90-minute games $10 and give all of the proceeds to local charities, We'll also be starting to phase in some indoor pickup games, but they will be a far more limited supply than the outdoor games have been.

You can find the list of upcoming games on our pickup soccer website

 

Li'l Sambas Kids Programs:

After a successful outdoor season, we continue to build our new youth program alongside Sanjeev Parmar and the Futuro Soccer Academy. Our first winter program kicks off at uOttawa at the beginning of December. We only have a few spaces left until it is sold out and registration for the following season will open in mid-December. You can find full details and registration at the L'il Sambas website.

Important Information on Vaccine Requirements for League Games
2 September 2021 @ 3:49 PM by Chris Surgeoner

Hello everyone,

Thank you all for joining us again for our late summer/early fall outdoor leagues. It's been great to see both new and returning teams back on the field and even some familiar faces and team names back after an 18-month hiatus.

Fall Leagues and Vaccinations

The Province of Ontario announced yesterday that it would be introducing a vaccine passport. It appears that this applies to indoor sports, but not to outdoor sports 

However, it looks like it will be mandatory to provide proof of vaccination at some of the outdoor venues that we will be using for the current leagues. Venues are introducing and updating vaccine policies as the new school and university term approaches.

In order to participate in a game at any venue, all players must abide by any policy or regulation that is in place at that specific venue. At some venues, this may include providing proof of vaccination. This is not negotiable with Footy Sevens, rules and regulations are set by the venue, and cannot be ignored or superseded by the league.

Here is what we know regarding the fields that we will be using:

Immaculata High School: Procedures will follow Provincial vaccine policy. No current change to procedures or vaccine proof required,

Carleton University: All visitors to the Carleton University campus including the Stadium and Raven Road fields must upload proof of vaccination to the Carleton U website and be able to show this proof of vaccination or they will not be allowed onto the campus.

"all individuals who are coming on to campus must attest to receiving their first dose vaccine by September 8, 2021, and their second dose no later than October 15, 2021. "

https://carleton.ca/covid19/health-and-safety/covid-19-vaccines/

University of Ottawa: All visitors to the University of Ottawa campus including Lees Field must upload proof of vaccination to the uOttawa website, be able to show this proof of vaccination and complete a daily COVID symptom check-in list or they will not be allowed onto the campus.

"all visitors (external clients, contractors and spectators) must be vaccinated to access all our athletic facilities on campus as of September 7th (first dose) and October 15th (second dose)"

https://www.uottawa.ca/coronavirus/en/mandatory-covid-19-vaccination

A few FAQs

What happens if I have a game at Carleton U or uOttawa and have not completed the vaccination requirements and proof? You will not be allowed to take part in the game and asked to leave the campus.

When do these requirements start? See information for individual venues above

What happens if I am exempt or wish to apply to be exempt from these policies? Anyone who wishes to discuss the policies at Carleton University or uOttawa or apply for exemption should do so directly with the University, we do not have any ability to ignore or alter their procedures on behalf of any individual.

Can we make a request for all of our games to be at a venue that does not require vaccination? Unless a league specifically says that it is only played at one venue, we cannot guarantee that any team or player will not have any games at any specific venue.

I'm vaccinated, but I don't know where the proof of vaccination is? If you were vaccinated in Ontario, you should have got an e-mail with a document titled "dose_admin . . ." . Try searching your email for that.

We will provide updates as we have them,

Good luck for the new season,

The Footy Sevens Team

  • No limits on division sizes. 
  • We continue with our contact tracing checkins but now that we've entered Phase 3, no longer required to complete the screening questionnaire at most venues (the exception being Carleton University).
  • We continue to encourage our members to be conscious about carpooling and respecting government guidelines when not in the facilities.

 

Youth Leagues - New Seasons Begin late-August - Spaces are Limited

Youth Leagues - Begin July 2nd - Spaces are Limited

We launched our new Li'l Sambas kids program a couple of months ago and had an incredible response with over 325 kids already signed up to play in the spring program at Immaculata. We'll be partnering with Futuro Soccer Academy and those of you who have watched the Futuro Academy kids train before or after your Footy Sevens game will already have been amazed at the level of technique and attention to detail at each session. Those same core principles will be adapted to each age level to give an unrivaled start in the game for both beginners and kids with a little experience.

Spring League Update & Return to Play
23 May 2021 @ 9:45 PM by Andrew Park

Hi Footyseveners,

We hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the great weather over this long weekend. We all wish we were back on the field playing the game we love and are hopeful that it won't be long until we're back underway. As the situation here in Ottawa (and Ontario) improves, we wanted to reach out and give you a quick update regarding our Spring/Summer leagues.

We were hoping for an immediate return of safe outdoor sports but unfortunately, it looks like we will have to wait until Phase 2 of the reopening in late June or early July. If there are any changes to the provincial timeline for sports, we are ready to get going right away and will update everyone as more information becomes available. 

We've put together a short FAQ that covers some of the more general questions we've received. 

When will the leagues begin? The provincial announcement allows for league games to resume in Phase 2 of the reopening plan, currently slated for late June or early July. The dates posted are based on the information we have received to date. They are subject to change and if we're able to start earlier, we are ready to get going as soon as we are permitted to do so.

Can I still register? Yes! We still have spaces remaining in all of our Spring/Summer leagues. Team and Individual registration is open. Click here for all league information.

Will my team play the full 8 game season? Yes, all Spring/Summer leagues will be played in their entirety. 

Where will leagues be played? All Spring/Summer leagues will be played outdoors and games will be scheduled at Immaculata High School or Carleton University, as advertised. 

Kids Soccer - Li'l Sambas Programs for Ages 4-10 years old

We launched our new L'l Sambas kids program a couple of months ago and had an incredible response with alrmost 300 kids already signed up to play in the spring program at Immaculata. We'll be partnering with Futuro Soccer Academy and those of you who have watched the Futuro Academy kids train before or after your Footy Sevens game will already have been amazed at the level of technique and attention to detail at each session. Those same core principles will be adapted to each age level to give an unrivaled start in the game for both beginners and kids with a little experience.

Pickup Sports and Field Rentals

We are waiting to hear when we are allowed to reopen and what is or isn't allowed when we do: as soon as we are allowed to open for field rentals and for our popular pickup games, they will be available! Keep watching this space for updates.

THANK YOU! Needless to say, but we'd also just like to say a big thank you to all our members for your continued support throughout the pandemic. We couldn't do this without you and we're looking forward to getting back on the field.

If you have any questions about any of this or a specific league, drop us an email and we'll answer your questions to the best of our ability.

Ottawa's Stay-at-Home Order
12 April 2021 @ 9:34 AM by Andrew Park

Hi everyone,

We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. As we all know by now, Ontario is under a stay-at-home order until at least May 6th. Under this order we are unable to offer league games, pickup games or training session. We've had a few questions from people about the status of the leagues and while the situation is very fluid, we wanted to provide a brief update.

  • All leagues that were underway when restrictions went into place have been postponed and will resume once we are allowed to do so. 
  • All leagues that have yet to begin may be delayed slightly as we get caught up. Once we have more information regarding reopening, we will be in touch with individual leagues and teams to update them on start dates, etc. 
  • We'll be in touch as more information becomes available but if you have any questions, please drop us an email. 

Thanks for your patience (again!) as we navigate this challenging situation. 

- Your Ottawa Footy Sevens Team

 

Winter League Update
13 January 2021 @ 12:07 PM by Andrew Park

Hi Footyseveners,

We hope everyone had a good holiday and we wish you all a happy new year.

As you know by now, Ottawa is under a full lockdown and indoor sports are prohibited until February 11th. With these restrictions in mind, we wanted to reach out to update everyone on how they will impact our current schedules and the next season of leagues. 

Winter Season:

Providing restrictions are lifted and indoor team sports are permitted, the winter season will resume on February 11th. We have started updating schedules and will confirm the adjustments once we know that government restrictions will be lifted. The final weeks of the winter season will be condensed and likely involve doubleheaders. 

Winter/Early Spring Season:

These restrictions have had a knock-on effect on our next set of winter/early spring leagues and some start dates have been delayed. Please double-check the homepage of the website for specific league information.

Our Register with Confidence Guarantee:

Registration is open for our Winter/Early Spring leagues and your team space can be secured with a 250.00 deposit. If the Winter/Early Spring season is cancelled due to Covid restrictions, registrants will have the option to receive a refund for any unplayed games.

In order to keep things manageable on our end, we'll not be accepting full team payments until we have confirmation that provincial restrictions will be lifted. For a full list of our leagues click here. 

We are currently operating under the assumption that measures will be lifted in February but recognize there is a level of uncertainty. We'll continue to update you as to the status of our restart as information becomes available. 

 

Until then, stay safe and we'll hopefully see you back on the field soon!

 

Andrew, Chris & Matt - Your Ottawa Footy Sevens Team
