  1. St. Columban Soccer Club 2023 Registration
    Tier 1, 2, 3, and House League
    (U4-U18)



    St. Columban Soccer Club is a community based soccer organization that is committed to player development and fun for all skill levels. We are an inclusive organization that has a goal of providing the best soccer experience for players of all ages and all skill levels!

    • Tier 1 and 2 teams are competitive teams that are at a higher caliber of play. U9 and U11 games will be within a closer radius while U13-U18 teams may be required to travel over 60 mins drive time to attend a game depending on the centres in their division. Games will be weeknights. You can expect one practice and one game per week.
    • Tier 3 teams are local travel teams that are at a recreational level of play with a focus on skill development. Games are usually within 45 mins drive time. You can expect one practice and one game per week.
    • House League teams focus on fun and player development; they play once a week in St. Columban (ages 3 to 13 yrs old) from end of May to end of July.
      • We hope to offer recreational and competitive divisions for U8 and Senior House League depending on interest and if we have enough coaches to help. We may also split Senior House League into different age groups if there are enough players to make it work.
    • **NOTE - local centres from Huron County (Goderich, South Huron, Clinton, etc.) will be joining the EMSA league this season which means there's more opportunity to play teams closer to us. Every effort will be made to try to minimize Tier 2 and Tier 3 travel distance and have our teams play against centres closest to us, especially for U9 and U11 divisions.


    This form is for players to register for the 2023 outdoor season for Tier 1, 2, and 3 teams and house league teams. We are asking you to choose which level of play you wish to be involved in for 2023. For Tier 1 and 2 teams, there may be tryouts if required. A separate form must be submitted for each player. If you completed the tryout form in the fall, we are asking you to also complete this registration form.

    Our fees for 2023 are:
    - $55 for each U4 house league player
    - $60 for each U6, U8, or Senior House League player
    - $125 for each Tier 3 player
    - $250 for each Tier 2 player
    - $400 for each Tier 1 player 

    Payment will be collected by etransfer once all teams are finalized. Register before February 15th to avoid a late registration fee.

  3. Rowan's Law Acknowledgement

     

    What is Rowan’s Law?

    Rowan’s Law legislation was passed by the Ontario Government in 2018. This legislation is named in memory of Rowan Stringer who tragically died in 2013 of Second Impact Syndrome, the result of suffering multiple concussions playing rugby three times in six days. The legislation is designed to create a safer environment for competitive athletes, children and youth to play sport.

    Knowing how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion, and what to do if a concussion happens saves lives. The Ontario Government is committed to implementing Rowan’s Law by putting concussion safety information in the hands of people who need it most. Increasing awareness and changing conversations in sport, at school and in our homes, will result in a transformative change to the way in which concussions are managed in amateur competitive sport and beyond.

    A participant is subject to a Concussion Code of Conduct for each Sports Organization they register with. The St. Columban Soccer Code of Conduct and the appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources MUST be reviewed before you can participate.


    ALL PARTICIPANTS UNDER THE AGE OF 26, PARENTS OF PARTICIPANTS UNDER THE AGE OF 18, COACHES, TRAINERS, & MANAGERS MUST REVIEW THIS INFORMATION, AND ACKNOWLEDGE THEY HAVE DONE SO, BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN ANY ST. COLUMBAN SOCCER PROGRAM.
