We know this summer will likely look different and we are excited to offer the types of programs that are deemed safe by our health authority. We are still planning to offer summer day camps as well as quality soccer programming. More details will follow as new information is released by the province.
We are in the middle of developing UDFC’s Strategic Plan, which will guide our organization for the next 3 years. We will be issuing a questionnaire this week seeking feedback from you, our members, on our direction as a club. Please take a moment to complete the questionnaire and provide your input on what you feel is important for the future.

UDFC’s friend, Mike Whyatt, has created a #Run4Heroes campaign with the goal of raising $10,000 which will be matched to become $20,000 to go toward Front Line Workers in the fight against Covid 19. Many members of our UDFC family have already participated by running/ walking 5 kms and making a $5 donation. Everyone is welcome to participate in this really great cause. https://ca.gofundme.com/f/run-for-front-line-heroes-canada
Congratulations to the UDFC groups, families and individuals who have already participated in this worthy cause.
As a show of solidarity and support for the challenging times we have been facing in NS, many community soccer clubs on the west coast have challenged each other to track how many km’s their athletes (and families) are running during the break. They are adding the KMs together and virtually “running” 6000 km (approx the distance from Surrey, BC to Halifax). Surrey United has just “passed” Montreal. You can track their progress here or search #RuntoHalifax .
Dreamscape is a free computer game that your elementary school-age child can play at home to help improve their reading skills. As extra incentive, there will be HFX Wanderer’s content packs included in the game so your child can learn about their favourite Wanderers! The game is catered to children in Pre-K to Grade 2, but kids in Grade 3-6 will have fun using it too! Fun fact: this version of the game is geo-fenced, so only those in Nova Scotia will be able to play this Wanderers version of Dreamscape.
Here is how you can sign up for FREE:
Step 1: Download the app on your computer by clicking here, or visit your smart phone’s app store and download it there.
Step 2: Click “NEW ACCOUNT” and then click “PLAYING AT HOME”
Step 3: Type in your email
Step 4: Type in your child’s first name and the first letter of their last name. Then you will be prompted to choose your child’s grade and a password for the account.
Step 5: Sign up!
Share a picture on social media of your child playing Dreamscape and tag @uniteddfc and @hfxwanderersfc for a chance to be featured on ours and the Wanderers social media platforms. We can’t wait to see how your children interact with this game!
