Team registration for all Footy Sevens fall indoor leagues opens Wednesday, making Tuesday the last chance for our current captains to secure their space before the spots open to the general public.
We currently have our biggest ever line-up of teams playing in our summer leagues. Although we have our usual great selection of fall and winter leagues available, our capacity is much smaller in fall and we only have enough space to accommodate about 60% of the teams that are playing with us just now.
We’ve got the same great line-up of coed and men’s leagues as last year. Most of our winter leagues begin in November, but don’t forget that the start of our Monday and Wednesday coed leagues in Gloucester begin in the middle of October and are only a month away. If you can’t wait until then to get out and play, we can still squeeze one or two more teams into our current summer leagues if you contact us today. Alternatively, you can always join one of our regular pick-up games or get on the court with volleyball and floor hockey leagues at various venues.
Fall 2018 Soccer League Line-Up
Gloucester Domes – Mon, Tue, Wed, Sun
The Hornet’s Nest and Louis Riel Dome have been league venues for as long as Footy Sevens has been in existence and we run indoor leagues year-round at the domes out on Bearbrook Road. Our Monday, Wednesday and Sunday coed and Tuesday late evening men’s leagues have been established for a number of years and will be back again this fall and winter. All of the leagues start in October or the first week of November and are likely to sell out well before their start date.
Ottawa University – Mon, Wed, Fri and Sun
For the past six years, the Lees Dome at Ottawa University has sold out with over 100 teams playing at the downtown venue in the fall and winter seasons. The dome will be our main location for fall and winter 2018/19 and we’ll be able to offer the same great line-up of leagues as last year. We are offering coed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Our men’s league is also on Sundays. All of the Ottawa University leagues are scheduled to begin in late November.
Fieldhouse at Carleton University – Fri
We’ll be at Carleton U on Fridays for our Fall men’s league and the season begins in November and runs until March.
Ben Franklin Dome – Mon
Our Monday Men’s league at Ben Franklin Dome begins in November with later kick-off times: ideal for those who are unable to make early kick-offs during the fall season.
Individual Registration – Soccer
Individual registration for our fall soccer leagues opens on Friday, a couple of days after the team registration.
Volleyball and Floor Hockey
Don’t forget we’ve also got 4 nights of mixed volleyball available from Monday to Thursday a various venues around the city. Our Wednesday league at Redeemer CHS has a single team space still available and the Thursday league at Carleton is already sold out. We still have a few of spaces available at our mixed 4s leagues at St. Patricks High School. A limited number of individual sign-ups are still available for all leagues. All of our fall volleyball leagues start this month.
If you prefer you gym sports with sticks rather than spikes, we have 2 team spaces left for our Floor Hockey League starting on Wednesday evenings at the Ottawa Montessori School gym in Alta Vista.
Registration for all volleyball and floor hockey leagues can be found on the Ottawa Volley Sixes website.
