*** UPDATED SEPTEMBER 11, 2019 - Placement Session Information***

- U12 Girls do not attend placement sessions. 

-  Based on registration numbers, U12 Boys will attend placement sessions. We believe that it is important to place players on the team were they will grow and have the most fun. Similarly, teams need to be placed in the League such that they are challenged in a fun but competitive environment. This could include playing a team recreationally or playing a team against the highest level teams such as the named previous Whitecaps level. 

To aid in this initial player and team placement, we have decided to hold a placement session for our U11 and U12 Boys divisions. This initial session will assist in providing the best experience for all of our players.

With the Player Pool Initiative available, as the season progresses we have the flexibility to adjust our teams to suit the developmental needs of our players. Players will continue to be observed to to facilitate their growth throughout the season. Both trained and C Licensed coaches will participating in their growth and development.

There is a $10 placement fee payable by cash or cheque at the placement session for each player. This fee is used to help cover the cost of the turf for our placement sessions. Players will only receive their numbered pinnie upon payment of the placement fee. The schedule for the placement sessions is yet to be finalized, however the sessions will be occurring at the East Hants Sportsplex on the following dates:

Tuesday, Sept 17th, 6pm - 9pm

Thursday, Sept 19th, 6pm - 9pm
