Spring League Line-Up
As always we’ve got a terrific line-up of 7-a-side leagues available and this year we will be concentrated on three main venues:
- Central (Outdoor): Carleton University’s two outdoor turf fields.
- East (Indoor): Louis Riel and Hornet’s Nest Domes
- South-West (Indoor): Ben Franklin Dome
We will also have our annual summer men’s downtown 11-a-side league taking place on Friday evenings at Ottawa University’s Matt Anthony field.
Carleton University – Sun, Mon, Wed, Fri
We’ve always had dozens of teams playing at Carleton University in our spring and summer leagues on Fridays and Sundays, and this year we are able to add Mondays and Wednesdays to the mix. The 90 minute coed league on Sunday evenings is always the first of our spring leagues to sell out and we have been able to increase the capacity for that league as well as add 60 minute men’s and coed leagues. We’ll also have a Friday men’s league as well as Monday, Wednesday and Friday coed.
Louis Riel and Hornets’ Nest Domes – Mon, Tue, Wed, Sun
Our Monday and Wednesday 90 minute indoor coed leagues in the east of the city are our longest running leagues and provide cracking value for those teams who don’t want to gamble with the weather over the summer. The leagues are coed, as are our 60 minute Tuesday and Sunday leagues at the same domes.
Ben Franklin Dome – Tue, Thur
The Ben franklin Dome is a great venue for those of you based in the west and south of the city and we’ll have a 60 minute men’s league on Tuesday evenings and 60 minute coed on Thursdays.
All leagues at all venues begin in May 2015.
Late Winter Leagues Still Available
Don’t forget we still have some of our late winter leagues starting in early March on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Hornets’ Nest and Louis Riel Domes as well as our first ever indoor outdoor league which starts indoors at Ottawa U and goes outdoor at Carleton U once the snow clears.
