Mixed 7-Aside Begins!
For those who have played in the Thursday Mixed Seven-Aside League in the past, things are improving this year. Andrew MacKinnon, Cara Jay, and I will be building on past seasons to improve the organization.
+ There will be paid umpires for each match! Not only does this mean we will not have to self-regulate, it also gives an opportunity for players to also umpire and earn back some of their player fees.
+ There will be goalies each and every week! We will endeavour to fill all four goals every week so that we can have some real hockey.
+ There will be mixed-sevens-specific rules! These will include gender equality regulations and short corner rules.
+ There will be online registration! This will ensure everyone has paid, registered, and insured. Please see the registration steps below.

We realize that the fees are slightly higher than in previous years. The increase is a result of decreasing numbers and the necessity to have paid umpires to reinvigorate the league. Let’s get out there and recruit new players. With more players, we will have better hockey with lower fees!
Exhibition games will run on Thursday, 20th at 8pm. Please register online now. All players must be registered by Monday, September 24th to be eligible to pay. League matches begin on September 27th. No exceptions will be made.
See you on the pitch!
