SOCCER REGISTRATION for Parkdale has closed for the 2023 season. 

 

Thank you to all our participants!

Please contact Angus Smith, Director of Soccer, if you have any questions: soccer@parkdaleyyc.com

The tentative Schedule for the 2023 season is April 23rd to June 17th.

* The registration fee for each player in U8 & older includes a new soccer jerseywhich will be theirs to keep after the season!  *

* Teams for older kids dependent on enough participants. Days / times TBC, dependent on ICHL scheduling.

 

ICHL is "Inter-Community House League"

What does U… mean?

This is one of the most commonly asked questions. Children are grouped by age as U6, U8, etc. The “U” stands for “Under”. The number is their age on December 31 of this past New Years Eve. Your child will be assigned to the appropriate age category based on their age on December 31st, 2022.

For example, if your child is 5 years old on December 31st, 2022, your child is considered U6 (even if their birthday is Jan 1st and they will be 6 years old before or during the soccer season).

This means that players are allocated to player groups strictly based on this designation, and we cannot allow players to join team outside of their eligible age group. *Policies do not allow us to have players participate outside their eligible age group, regardless of reasons, so please do NOT register your child in a group that does not correlate their year born. Registrations done this way will NOT be processed*

Here are the categories that relate to each year of birth (ie: if your child’s year of birth is 2014 or 2015, your child is considered U8).
