Please read below for more information. If you are interested in taking part, please register before 11pm, October 18, 2020 - . Spots are limited - if you are interested register early as the tournament is only available on a first come, first serve bais.
You can register here.
What is it?
A simple exhibition tournament, designed to give the players more on-field game time in a period of time when competition is rare. The tournament is not designed to have winners or losers, but rather to give players a chance to play. For the younger age groups, fun and friendly competition is the main goal. For the older age groups, the goal is the same, however Halifax City will also be inviting University coaches to watch and potentially scout as well.
When is it?
The weekend of October 23rd, 24th & 25th. Games will be played between UDFC and Halifax City teams, with all teams playing a minimum of 3 exhibition games.
Where is it?
Halifax Mainland Commons Turf - These are the two outdoor turf fields behind the Soccer Nova Scotia building.
The teams will NOT be aligned with our current Fall 2020 season rosters. Halifax City will be mixing and balancing their teams within each age group, and have asked we do the same. This means that after we have filled all our open slots, we would make balanced teams from all the registered players.
The age groups are slightly different to normal. Age groups are for both males and female players.
U9 & U10 combined - 2012 & 2011 birth years - 8 players per team (5-aside) games on Saturday and Sunday
U11 & U12 combined - 2010 & 2009 birth years - 15 player per team (9-aside) games on Saturday and Sunday
U13, U14 & U15 combined - 2008, 2007 & 2006 birth years - 15 players per team (9-aside) games on Saturday and Sunday
U16, U17 & U18 combined - 2005, 2004 & 2003 birth years - 18 players per team (11-aside) - one game a day, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
The tournament will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Spots are very limited, so if you would like your child to play, make sure you sign up fast!
Coaches for the tournament will depend on coach availability. Once we have teams, we will assign coaches to each group for the weekend.
What does it Cost?
U9 & U10 - $30
U11, U12, U13, U15 & U18 - $40
What do we get?
Each team will have 3 exhibition games, across the 3 days.
Every player will be guaranteed at least a minimum of 50% of each game, likely more based on the maximum number of players.
Clashes With UDFC In-House League
This tournament does coincide with the first day of our UDFC In-House League. However, both schedules will be made to make sure no age groups overlap. The expectation will be that players involved with the In-House league and the Halifax City tournament attend both.
Our UDFC Family has been invited to take part in a really fun challenge - basically sing the song "Happy Together" in Wanderers or UDFC clothes and we will be part of the video HFX Wanderers FC is creating. We want teams/ groups/ families and individuals to take part.
(Parents - contact your team/ group coach about helping the group record this at their next session)
This Friday and every Friday the Wanderers offer a zoom chat with players. If you (or your player) are interested in attending this chat - please fill out this quick form and we will email you the zoom link for as long as the team remains playing. The chats are an amazing way to get to know the players and ask questions. Very cool for a player to attend.
This week, 3 Wanderers players will be on the call and it will take place at 7 pm on Friday, Sept 4.
