Now entering its 6th year, and having raised almost $50,000 for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, the Kicking Cancer’s Butt Coed Soccer Tournament is back.
After 5 great years as an indoor tournament at the Louis Riel Dome, this year’s tournament has a brand new venue at Carleton University and will use both of the university’s fantastic outdoor turf fields.
Your team can take part in this wonderful event with a minimum donation of only $250. All of the money raised will fund essential cancer research and treatment in the city and EVERY PENNY OF EVERY TEAM FEE OR DONATION GOES STRAIGHT TO THE OTTAWA REGIONAL CANCER FOUNDATION. Over the last 5 years the event has raised over $48,000 for the ORCF.
The tournament is a one day 7-a-side coed soccer tournament and will take place outdoors at Carleton University. What better way could there be to warm up for summer soccer?
Each coed 7-a-side team will play a minimum of 3 games during their round robin section. In previous years we have had to run multiple sessions to accommodate the teams. However, with twice as many fields available this year, we will be able to accommodate all teams on Saturday afternoon.
The tournament is 2 1/2 months away, and we won’t have a final schedule until we have all the registrations in, however the approximate schedule will be:
- Saturday 23rd May 11.30-5pm: round robin group stages: all teams will play a minimum of 3 x 30 minute games.
- Saturday 23rd May 5pm-7pm: playoffs, single elimination knock-out format to crown the Kicking Cancer’s Butt champion for 2015.
Team Registration will open on Monday 9th of March.
Teams register for the tournament at the Ottawa Footy Sevens Website and will receive their details of how to make their online donation to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation by e-mail within 24 hours of registering their team.
As per the previous 2 years, we will be offering individual registration for the tournament. Individual teams are organised by one of the long-term supporters of the tournament, Dave Walls, who has volunteered to organise individual teams for those who want to take part but do not have a full team available to them. Dave can be contacted at the address below
