Sunday August 17th will see our first games at Ottawa’s newest turf field, the newly completed Raven Road field at Carleton University. The field was completed on Friday and looks absolutely magnificent and we will have games at both the Keith Harris Stadium field and at the new Raven Road Field between now and the end of October.
There is currently a temporary entrance to the field from Parking Lot THREE at Carleton University.
Most of you are already used to parking in Parking Lot FIVE or across Bronson Avenue at Brewer Park. To access the field from either of these parking areas, follow the path marked by the yellow arrow on the map above. Follow the main path onto campus from the pedestrian crossing or lot 5, go between the Norm Fenn and Alumni Hall buildings and cut left through the small day-care carpark, past the Icehouse and Parking Lot 3 will be on your left hand side behind the Icehouse. The field entrance is at the back of lot 3.
If you choose to park in either Parking Lot 3 or Parking Lot 5 at Carleton University, you must follow the parking directions and payments as indicated at the pay stations. All parking lots at Carleton are either pay lots or reserved for permit holders and we cannot take any responsibility for anyone ticketed for not following the parking directions.
There is usually plenty of free parking available across the road at Brewer Park (2 hours limit) but please exercise normal caution and do not leave any valuables in your car and use the pedestrian crossing to cross Bronson Avenue.
The turf is a brand new infill turf and non-metal cleats, turf shoes or running shoes are suitable.
The three seven a-side fields are marked in blue and the goals are the same size as the Keith Harris Stadium 7-a-side goals. Field 1 is on the left as you enter the field and Field 3 is on the right. On the website games on the Keith Harris Stadium field will be indicated by “Carleton 1,2 or 3” or “Carleton Stadium 1,2 or 3”. Games on the new Raven Road Field will be indicated by “CU Raven Road 1,2 or 3”.
Although we will have leagues on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at Carleton University, the only remaining team spaces available are a single space in the Friday Coed league and two spaces in the Friday Men’s league.
