Winter League Registration Open Now
15 October 2020 @ 10:13 AM by Joel Convery

Hello everyone,

We are into the final few months of 2020 and what a year it has been. Providing government restrictions are lifted, we plan to operate our indoor leagues starting mid-November. The lineup looks different from past years and there have been some changes, as some of the facilities we have called home for past winter seasons are facing a delayed reopening. As a result, our new venue this winter will be the Sooner's Megadome located in Kanata. This state of the art facility is ideal for teams who live in the West or South End of Ottawa. 

Please note, we currently only have enough space available to accommodate about 30% of the teams that are currently playing outdoor soccer with us. Registration is now open and you can sign-up as an individual or reserve your team's space with $250 deposit at the Footy Sevens website.

Our Guarantee To You - If any leagues are cancelled prior to their start date or cancelled at some point throughout the season, teams will have the option to receive a credit or refund for the unplayed games (prorata). 

Coed Leagues

Mens Leagues

 

New League Additions

As the indoor facilities reopen, we expect to be offered some additional field time. We hope that we can use this to offer new leagues and if we are, the homepage will be updated and teams will be informed. If you have registered to a league and a new one works better for your team, we are happy to move registrations to better suit you. 

Individuals

There will be a small number of individual spaces available this fall. Registration is open and you can sign up through the homepage. 

Looking to get on the field before the start of the Winter leagues?

With the current restrictions, we are unable to run our leagues or pickup games until November 7th. If you are looking to get out, we have a couple of options for you to get some touches in. 

  • Training Sessions - We will be running our soccer training sessions for the next few weeks. 
  • Soccer Golf - A new course design is in the works and we have teeoffs starting this weekend.
  • Field Rental - If you'd like to get your team out for a quick practice or training session, drop us an email at admin@ottawafootysevens.com for pricing and availability. 

Volleyball

While we don't have our usual great lineup of mixed 6s volleyball, we have returned to the fantastic central location at Carleton's newly refurbished Norm Fenn gymnasium. Registration is still open and the season will resume following the 28 day lockdown. Full details and registration can be found on the Ottawa Volley Sixes Website.

You can find the full details of each league on the Footy Sevens Website.

 

FAQs

We know you and your teams will have a lot of questions about the forthcoming leagues and what will happen. Obviously, this is a season unlike any other since the league began. Here are some FAQs about the most common ones we think you will have.

  • Will there be leagues at Ottawa U Lees Dome? Not this season, the Lees Dome is going to be closed until mid-January. The indoor leagues available just now at other venues will end in mid-January, in time for teams to join our leagues at Ottawa U.
  • Will there be leagues at the Louis Riel Dome? Right now we don't know. We do not have enough confirmation of opening or availability for Louis Riel to allow us to post all of our usual east-end leagues. As soon as we have confirmation one way or the other we will let all of our current captains know.
  • What happens if we register for a league and then you post a league at a venue we prefer? If we post a new league before the upcoming seasons begin, we will transfer your registration to your preferred league.
  • What happens if the venue gets shut down or there is another provincial shutdown? In the case of a shutdown of more than a week or two, REFUNDS FOR ALL REMAINING GAMES WILL BE ISSUED. We will not be forcing teams to keep the balance on credit, refunds will be issued if requested. If there is a short shutdown (e.g.a week or two) the league will resume once the facility reopens and the league will finish a week or two later.
  • What happens if we change our minds after registering? We have to commit to renting time in the domes, so we have to have a firm idea of whether teams are committed to playing or not. Unfortunately, we will have to hold teams and players to their deposit/registration once they book their space. We are all going into this in the knowledge that the pandemic continues to be active in our local community, so please make sure that you and your team are comfortable committing to the season before registering.
  • Will there be new procedures and protocols indoors? Yes, each of the venues will have their own procedures and protocols in place. As well as the entry, exit and sign-in procedures, masks will likely be mandatory to enter all of the facilities, but not whilst playing, and a pre-entry symptoms checklist is likely to be required.
