Kingston’s Porto soccer team invites you to enter your senior men’s or women’s soccer team in their annual tournament, being held this year on June 2nd and 3rd.
They are offering Competitive and Recreational divisions for both men and for women. There will also be a Men’s oldtimer’s division.
For more information, contact the Tournament Coordinator Abel Almeida at (613) 353-2052 or visit the tournament website: www.kingstonsoccertournament.com.
Managers: March 4th is the last day you may add to your roster for the current season. If you have players you’d like to register for the tail end of the 2006-2007 indoor season, you have until then to do it.
Also, if any of your player registration books are still at the SOSA office (phone: 613-546-6642), you must pick them up before the end of this week on Friday, February 23rd.
The world’s first football club was founded 150 years ago in Sheffield, UK. They’re now known as Sheffield FC and they’re planning celebrations for their sesquicentennial anniversary. Kingston’s own Limestone City FC will be celebrating along with them this summer by staging an “expedition of football”, and you’re invited!
The LCFC is looking for soccer players to enjoy a unique 10-day soccer experience that will include playing matches against local opposition in Manchester, Liverpool, and Sheffield! The cost of the trip will be around $2,000, including accommodation and air travel departing from Kingston. You will leave Kingston on August 1 and return on the 13th.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Gord Lever or Henk Kuchlein for details. The deadline for signing-up for this exciting trip has been extended to March 14th, with the payment due by March 28th.
If you’ve played senior soccer in Kingston in the last couple of years you know that we have a shortage of referees. There’s lots of men’s and women’s soccer being played throughout the summer, but there simply aren’t enough referees to do all the games.
You can support your local soccer leagues, and community athletics in general, by becoming a senior soccer referee. Take the first step towards that by attending the C4 Referee Course for Adults that starts this Saturday, February 17th! C4 is the entry-level certification for adult referees; there are no pre-requisites for this course. Upon completion, you’ll be eligible to be a paid assistant referee at a senior soccer match.
The course consists of five sessions, each about 2-1/2 hours in length. They will be held at the SOSA office at 1201 Division St., Kingston, in the Kingslake Plaza. If you’re registered with any senior club within SOSA, the cost is only $25 and covers all five sessions. Otherwise, the cost is $75.
The proposed dates are as follows, but there is some flexibility, so even if you can’t make the first of these, please contact SOSA anyway and express your interest. They want referees and will try to accomodate your schedule.
Registration for the GKSSA 2006-07 indoor soccer league took place on Tuesday, September 26th at the Quarry Sportsplex from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
Team fees this year will be $1,950.00 for a 21 week season, which start in early October. Fees must be paid in full on September 26th, without exception!
New teams must provide a redeemable $200 bond as well. New teams will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis only if there is room available.
The nets are now up on the goals at the Frontenac SS field and it will remain that way through to the end of our season there. (Games at Novelis still requires each team to bring and install a net before kick-off.)
Due to temporary problems with the score-reporting phone number (541-2000 x1486) team managers are asked to always e-mail the results of their games to Statisician Kevin McEleney at . You must report the score, goals, cards, shutouts, and MVPs for both teams. Each team must do this the night of the game. Thanks for your co-operation.
All games in the President’s Cup and Nathalie Cave Cup competitions will be full-length games. In the case of a draw after 90 minutes, two extra time periods of 10 minutes each will be held. There is no golden or silver or magnesium goal, just like at that tournament in Germany. If the score is still tied after 20 minutes of extra time, a penalty kick shootout will determine the winner.
The schedules for the President’s Cup and Nathalie Cave Cup tournaments are now on-line. The first game is a Nathalie Cave Cup match on Wednesday, July 5th (Loyal Oarsman vs. Rose & Crown LCFC III) and there are two President’s Cup matches on Friday, July 7th.
The final team draw will be made shortly. Until then, B Division teams do not know exactly when and where and who they’ll play. (The top part of Division B will compete for the President’s Cup with Division A teams; the bottom part of B will compete with Division C teams for the Nathalie Cave Cup.)
Your GKSSA needs two more DBR Committee members, preferably one from Division B and one from Division C. These positions do not require very much of your time but they are an important part of our peer review discipline process. There aren’t meetings for you to attend; believe it or not you do your part by participating in a joint review of incidents with DBRC members via e-mail (definitely not to be confused with those “get rich by sending e-mail from home” schemes).
Please contribute your time to help run the soccer league you enjoy. If you are interested in stepping up and helping out, contact Pierre Vanderhout.
Match A24, originally scheduled for Friday, June 16 at McCullough 2 between El Salvador and Sporting will not take place. It has been forfeited by El Salvador for non-payment of the league fees.
This shouldn’t be news to anyone, but drinking alcohol in an unlicensed public place is illegal (yes, even after a hard fought soccer match on a warm summer night in Kingston). If you do so, you run the risk of being fined by the police as well as by the GKSSA.
Rule 14.A of our Rules and Regulations states:
No team shall be allowed to drink alcoholic beverages (including but not limited to beer) at or near the soccer fields. These facilities are public or private facilities made available for the use of the league with the understanding that the privilege of their use will be respected. Any team (or their supporters) that is proven to be breaking this rule will be fined a minimum of One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) for each occurrence.
Please respect the fields and those who own them. Park only in the appropriate locations; don’t litter; clean up litter; don’t abuse the facilities; and don’t drink in public.
The Cataraqui Soccer Club is proud to be this year’s host of the 30th Annual CAN-AM Friendship Soccer Tournament this weekend: Friday, May 26 through Sunday, May 28. All games will be held at Woodbine Park. There is a total of eight teams competing: four from Canada, four from the USA.
Our MPP, the Honourable John Gerretson, and Mr. John Dickson, Deputy Chief of Mission, U.S. Embassy to Canada, will acknowledge the uniqueness of this tournament at the park during a special ceremony at 3 PM on Saturday.
This tournament is also being used to help raise funds for the Alan Francis Indoor Soccer Field in Napanee. More information on the Tournament is available here, on the Cataraqui Soccer Club’s site.
Tom’s Place is looking for players 35 or more years-old for their team in the local Oldtimer’s league. Games will be played on Fridays from June to October. If you’re interested, please contact Seamus Ryan at 549-5018 or through e-mail to seamus.ryan at queensu.ca.
Until the end of June, each team that plays at the Frontenac SS field must provide and install their own goal netting before kick-off!
Games C1 and C2 were originally scheduled to be played at the Novelis field on May 15. The field is not available on that date and other fields will be found for these matches.
The 2006 Outdoor Regular Season schedule is now on-line. President Cup games and Nathalie Cave Cup games and playoff games are not yet shown, but they will be soon.
Some other parts of the GKSSA web site are not yet completely ready for the new season (for example, team pages are not there yet and contact information is not available yet), but they’ll be coming along soon too.
The balance of your team fees as well as your completed teams sheets are now due! Please submit both to GKSSA Registrar Maureen Sakell as soon as possible.
