2021 Winter Return To Competition

2021 Winter Return To Competition


Happy New Year to all of you!


We would like to start off 2021 by announcing to you that we have opened registration for our Winter season today for Returning Members. Registration for New Members will open shortly. 

This season includes practices but also the Return to Competition. Soccer Nova Scotia will be hosting a 10 game season for the various age levels U8 to U18. Games will be held on weekends starting the weekend of January 30th and running through to April.

Public Health restrictions are in effect for sports but are expected to updated by January 10th. Presently Clubs are allowed practices only but we are hopeful that these restrictions will be lifted by the time league play is to start at the end of January.

To allow for some time for easing of restrictions, we are not planning to start practices the week of January 17th.

A quick summary of the season is as follows:


  • U6 - Ten weeks of practices, once a week
  • U8 to U10 - Eleven weeks of practices, once a week
  • U11 - Eleven weeks of practices, twice a week
  • U12 to U18 - Fourteen weeks of practices, twice a week


Practices will be at the East Coast Varsity turf, East Hants Dome turf and local Dartmouth gyms



  • U6 - no games
  • U8 and U9 - Five Festival weekends, with two 25 minute games each.
  • U10 and U11 - Five Festival weekends with two 40 minute games each
  • U12 to U18 - Ten 45 minute games


Festivals will be held at the East Coast Varsity Dome

Games will be held at the BMo Centre in Halifax

Soccer Nova Scotia has also prepared contingency planning if there are still restrictions on the the number of players allowed on a field. These will include games, but spilt into smaller fields and reduced players at any given time. The aim is still to accommodate the total number of games for all players.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Hope to see you all on the field soon!
