UDFC U12 team collecting items for Adsum House

On December 20th, the UDFC Whitecaps U12 Boys team (Jeff Aucoin) has arranged to have a little inner-squad tournament on their last December practice to celebrate the holidays and raise awareness for Adsum House. This event was initiated by a player on the team and the team is gathering supplies for Adsum house as part of their event. UDFC is so proud of their community spirit and initiative that we would like to ask interested members to also donate items to Adsum House.

Adsum House is a safe place and support to women and families who are homeless and without resources.

UDFC Clothing for sale

UDFC clothing makes a perfect gift for UDFC players and fans. Watch need to know and social media over the next month for bundles, specials and limited time clothing offers. New gray performance touques are in stock for $15 each – limited quantity.

 

Small Group Training Update

We are going to announce our Small Group Training options for the new year very shortly. Please watch for an email with information or email info@udfc.ca if you are interested.

Did you Know? Soccer Insurance

Did you know that all registered players who get injured playing soccer in a UDFC program/team have insurance through Soccer NS? It is part of your registration fees. If your child is injured playing soccer please contact deborahm@udfc.ca to begin the claim process. (Your initial claims go through your family's primary (and secondary) medical plan(s) first. The Soccer NS insurance will pick up most of the remaining balance not covered by personal insurance.)
