Net safety reminder

Please remember to anchor goals and do not hang on or swing from the nets.

Injuries are completely preventable if clubs, coaches, parents and players work together to ensure that goalposts are anchored to the ground and that at no time do individuals swing or hang from the nets.

Preseason and Seeding Round
Preseason allows for a transition from indoor to outdoor maximizing the amount of play-time for teams. Teams will participate in a 4-game preseason against competition registered in the same tier. During this time, clubs will use the results and feedback from their coaches to determine if the team has been placed in the correct tier. U11-U18 tiers 1-6 participate in preseason.

U9-U10 teams participate in a seeding round against teams registered in the same tier. Over the course of the seeding round, CMSA will use the results to ensure teams are placed with equally competitive teams for their regular season and city finals.

Regular Season
Regular season schedules are created once preseason and seeding round games have completed. This allows member-clubs the opportunity to move teams to a more appropriate tier based on their performance in the preseason. The regular season is comprised of a single round robin, double round robin or in some instances, a triple round robin if there is a small number of teams registered in that group. The results of regular season determine the final league placements and post-season competition placement.

2017 Outdoor Coaches Meeting

Hello

Welcome to the 2017 outdoor season.

On Monday evening we will be holding an information session to start the season.

At this meeting we will cover some basic information to start the season, provide contact info, outline what support you will receive from the club and answer any questions you may have.

This meeting is for all coaches, assistant coaches and team managers.

We have revamped our program and we have some changes so it’s good to get feedback from the group. We want to make this what you want to see.

The meeting will be:

Monday 17th from 8-9pm @ Thornecliffe Greenview 5600 Centre St N.

I don’t want to say that the meeting is mandatory but with what we have presented in the past it will set you up for success.  Please make time in your schedule to attend.

If you need equipment for the Outdoor season please email Marlene at equipment@dufc.ca and please include your team age and name. Marlene will have the equipment ready for pick up on Monday at TG at this same time.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks

Cory Abel
