FAQ


In light of the new restrictions we decided to postpone our competitive team tryouts to ensure that we can do it safely. We understand that it is disappointing.

If you or your child intend to tryout for a competitive team on our later date (tba), please email us at CelticsSoccer@mysporthub.ca to help us ensure that we do not have more than 25 people on the field at a given time. Please do so by May 1st, 2021 and use the Subject: Tryouts, your age and gender.

Note that all players must be registered in order to be able to try out. Refunds will be given if the season’s planned format has to change.


The Summer Season begins the week of May 20th and finishes the final week of July.
