Frequently Asked Questions
- For the U4 and U6 age groups, we will be hosting a fun 15-minute coach led game before every regular game – the purpose is so that every child gets a chance to have time on the ball. We will be reviewing these games with our new coaches – they will be simple games created to get every child involved and hopefully more comfortable with the ball and the team setting
- Also, we will be continuing to add some detailed coaching support/instruction for new coaches – hoping to make it easier for those future great coaches to feel more comfortable volunteering for the first time!
- We are also hiring field marshals (job posting) to help us during the season – please email email@example.com if you are interested in the position.

Do I need any special skills to coach?
You need patience and enthusiasm! We have a fantastic HL Director of Coaching, Liz Shaugnessy-Rowe, who is willing to help/support you. Most HL teams have parent coaches who started off by just wanting to be involved. Without our volunteer coaches, we wouldn’t have a league. Thank you to those who step-up to help out – oh and you get a coaching jersey as well!
How long does the season last?
10 weeks – starting Monday, May 21, 2018 (Victoria Day!) running until Wednesday, July 25, 2018 (Yes they play on holiday Monday’s). If games are cancelled because of wet field conditions we will extend the season, max 2 games. As the season starts please check the schedules page on a regular basis.
What is included?
- jersey, shorts, socks
- balls for U4 & U6
- pizza party & trophy (last week of the season)
What equipment is needed?
We do not require cleats for the U4 age group, however, shin guards are required. All other age groups: Shin guards and cleats are required.
What happens during rain/thunderstorms?
Kids love playing during the rain however thunderstorms can be very dangerous. It is the ref’s responsibility to call the game if they feel safety is an issue – this will be done at the field. If for some reason the fields are too wet to play on and need to be closed then the website will be updated and coaches will be notified. Games cancelled due to wet field conditions (prior to the game start – i.e. this is not applicable when the game is called on the field) will be added to the end of the season (max 2 games) but WILL NOT AFFECT THE PIZZA PARTY DATES. Games cancelled by the refs due to thunder will not be added to the end of the season.
What happens during extreme heat conditions?
Games will carry on despite the heat. Players will be provided with additional water breaks and we recommend you bring extra water to the field for your player. It is always up to the individual family to decide whether or not to participate during hot weather.
Need a Refund?
No problem. We understand things happen. After April 1st there is a $20 admin fee when refunding players. As the season starts, if you need a refund there will be a $30 admin fee and a pro-rated amount deducted based on the date and number of games left. No refunds will be issued after the 5th week.
