Youth League FAQ

  • Should you wear a cup? No, a cup will hurt more than with no cup.
  • Most people will wear underwear or tight shorts under their pants.  Pants can be washed but should be hung to dry.
  • Players should always come to practice in full equipment and bring a water.
  • Always remember to keep your mouth guard in your mouth while on the field.  If you forget your mouth guard you can not play.
  • Do we still practice in the rain?  Yes, we do, rain can be fun and we only stop for lightning.
  • Once on a team, the players will all get their game jerseys which will be worn for practices as well.  Until they receive the jersey, they can put a t-shirt, or jersey over the pads for this week.
  • Payment can be made by email transfer to this email address or at the Source for Sports on Fischer street by cash, cheque, debit or credit

For those that did not get equipment, we will have some with us at the field, but you can still participate without it.  There may be a couple of things you can but most will be ok.
